Do You Know What Lurks In Your Spam Filter?
I don’t understand spam. I really don’t.
I don’t understand the people that circulate it and the people who actually fall for it. A Nigerian king wants to give you a million dollars…really?
Thanks to the beauty of spam filters on email and blogs, we don’t have to deal with this crap much anymore. But, every now and then, I peek in the spam folder to make sure something legitimate didn’t get overlooked.
And I’m always amazed by the efforts, or lack thereof, that spammers make to fool us into believing they are legitimately commenting on a post. Who writes this stuff? Is it an actual human, a robot, a computer program, a parakeet?
To understand why I’m asking this question, check out some of the recent spam comments that my WordPress filter caught:
Attractive section of content. I just stumbled upon your blog and in accession capital to assert that I get actually enjoyed account your blog posts. Any way I will be subscribing to your augment and even I achievement you access consistently rapidly.
Subscribing to my augment? Is that even legal?
Very good making the effort to go about this in turn, I find myself clearly into it and additionally enjoy mastering much more about this niche. Assuming likely, while you realise proficiency, do you really views adding your new net in further more knowledge? This is helpful for us.
I totally disagree with you. But let me put it this way: Observation mine blog post literacy can’t sun storm with a more incredible looking glass of apple juice. Please refer me to analytics statistics number crunching so I can retain pleasant acoustics on the Rhode Island senator’s comments. Thank you, or as we say in Tennessee: “Thank you.”
I’d let you know that most people visitors are actually seriously fortunate enough to be a good website with many different distinctive those that have helpful principles. I believe somewhat fortunate enough to have come across all pages and show off toward definitely far more exceptional minutes reading through right here. Thanks a lot all over again for all you specifics.
I love this one. “People visitors,” as opposed to the large amount of canine visitors that we bloggers receive. I hear Labs are big fans of food blogs–if you’re into that. And, those Yorkies…well, I can’t tell you about the sites they frequent. Also, these mysterious “people visitors are actually seriously fortunate enough to be a good website with many different distinctive…” Is this some kind of strange Neuromancer/Matrix technology where we people turn into websites? If that’s the case, I got dibs on The Food Network site.
I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
Hold up, now. This spammer took some type of strange stream-of-consciousness sexual turn at the end there–immediately after a sentence that talks about “best practices.” Huh?
Dude Im a cubs fan from wisconsin too! this is are year
If you’re going to take a sports and geography angle on your crappy spam comments, at least get it right.
1. I’m not a Cubs fan. I’m a Braves fan.
2. I’m not from Wisconsin. I’m from Tennessee, via Georgia.
3. “This is are year”? No, this is not you are year. Not you are year at all. You are Cubs are am suck.
Obviously, most spammers don’t have a solid grasp of English language. But is that really a surprise?
Have you guys had any ridiculous spam emails or comments on your blogs?
