Andrew recently put up a post about his spam comments, which reminded me of mine.
The first time I checked the spam folder there were over 800 comments, so I got busy with the delete button.
Now that it is a more manageable size, I'll often read before deleting.
Just last weekend, as I was reading through the spam, (because I like a bit of a giggle now and again), to check in case any real comments find their way there and in amongst the many, many, many comments offering me cheap short term loans, (no thanks) and cheap medications, (again, no thanks) , I found a few comments that left me a little puzzled.
"....unwell unquestionably come more formerly again since exactly the same nearly a lot often inside case you shield this hike."
What the heck does that mean?
Is this just someone practising their typing?
And there's this one >
"What a stuff of un-ambiguity and preserveness of valuable know-how on the topic of unexpected feelings."
Another one tells me I have
"an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures and maybe you could space it out better?"
I think perhaps this person hasn't actually seen my blog, since I post so many photos Picasa is giving me grief over the uploading.
How about this one that was attached to one of my Whimsical Wednesdays >
"Everything is very open with a clear explanation of the issues. It was definitely informative. Your website is extremely helpful."
You've all seen my Whimsical Wednesdays, they're fun, a giggle, but hardly informative or educational.
Someone else is offering me
"software that can do all the hard work of promoting this website so I can finally get 'laser-targeted qualified traffic'...."
Do I need laser-targeted traffic? What is that anyway?
There's one telling me all about the merits of ghd hair straighteners and right in the middle is this sentence;
" However whale viewing is only attainable from late July to October once the humpback whales migrate."
Then it goes back to describing the benefits of the ghd before continuing with...
"by technique of the chilly Antarctic Sea for the comfortable waters of French Polynesia",
then we're back to the hair straighteners again.
I fail to see any connection between humpback whales and hair straighteners.
At least once a week I get the one that tells me my content is "rife with spelling mistakes" , well that is probably because I use English spelling instead of American.
And I've learned that if I use videos I could make my posts "pop".
And diet tips, I get lots of those since I wrote about the skirt challenge.
(damn skirt still doesn't fit yet)
(but the jeans button up easier (^_^) )
What sillinesses do you get in your spam comments folder? Apart from the viagra and penis enlargement ones?
