Meanest spam comment ever
October 9, 2011 § 4 Comments
Many times, spam comments are filled with nonsense or utterly indecipherable gibberish. Other times, they are thinly-veiled flattery about just how incredible a writer one is…on a page filled with pictures. Or a contact form.
Today, though, I got a comment from someone advertising a website (obvious in their username) that was particularly mean. This spammer attempted to leave the comment on my post “Bidding Farewell the Roaring Twenties…Hello the…Thrilling Thirties?” You know…my birthday post. According to this spammer:
The next time I read a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to learn, however I actually thought youd have one thing fascinating to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you would fix in case you werent too busy on the lookout for attention.
I mean, what?? So mean. I’m curious what I’m meant to do with this. It’s off-topic (what was there to really “learn” in that post?) and ignores the subject matter in the post itself (I was feeling the baby kick, I had strep throat, and I was feeling more optimistic than ever about turning thirty). Because it’s a fairly mean comment, I am not inclined to visit this person’s website. I am not curious about checking this person out.
Spammers out there: you win more flies with honey than with vinegar.
(Except, I’m not a fly, so….)
What a strange comment–for SPAM or otherwise. You may not be a fly, but you yourself are sweet!
I’ve gotten several of that type of comment. Don’t let it get to you, i don’t think it has anything to do with your post. I think that spammers like that just pick a random post a attach the comment. I get most of my spams on one post! I sometimes get the same comment on several posts simultaneously. Spam is just that, spam. So ignore, and move on, unless you can prove that the comment came from a certain human being who shall remain nameless. 😉
Yowzers! Most counter-productive Spam comment ever!
You know, if you weren’t too busy on the lookout for attention, you would KNOW that turning thirty is something you would fix! 😉
That’s a really good one you got there. I always keep the good one, figuring there’s got to be something good I can do with these silly spam comments.
