So I happened to log into my WordPress dashboard a few minutes ago for my daily spam inbox clearance. There was just one solitary spam comment in there today, but this one gave me about ten seconds of continuous laughter.
A previous entry titled ‘I’ve found my happy place again’ about a month back (speaking about how I’m much happier and emotionally stabler than before) also attracted heaps of spam comments.
Likewise, there was another epic spammy comment which linked to a strange advertorial website and carried the message, ‘I’m sorry but I disagree with you. Please email me at (spammy email address) to discuss why.’
Pity I didn’t take a screenshot of that one! (;
Spam comments may be dumb, but you have to admit – the sheer dumbness of it all makes for good amusement, no?
P/S: Yes, I am fully aware that most spam comments are left by computer-programmed scripts (or robots) who are too dumb to understand the context of the blog entries they are spamming, and not by human beings. (Which perhaps why the comments are usually disjointed – although the programmers like to think that they sound ‘generic’ enough to apply to all posts.)
P/P/S: Of course, spammy website and email addresses have been blurred out since I don’t want to give them free advertising. But the IP address is out there for you guys to add to your blocklists. -Stifles laughter-.
