My Favorite Spam

Flattery: we all love it. Spam: we all hate it.

Those who offer the second, know how we can easily fall pray to the first. Newer spam has done away with meaningless text (to bypass Bayesian filters) and, replaced it with meaningful (if boiler plate) text. This text offers high praise for the article it posts to. The text itself offers no inducement to purchase penis enlargement or porn (I wonder does purchase of one lead to desire for the other), but the author link does point to a website (also no doubt garnering page rank credibility).

I certainly do not want to help spammers, but find it hard to give up their generous praise. Therefore, this page will contain my favorite spattery (spam flattery) with the links removed. If I find any humorous spam I will include that too, but sadly the more ridiculous spam seems to have disappeared, to be replaced by filter-busting blandness.

I will copy spam comments that posted to other threads here. I may eventually use these comments on the back cover blurb when I bring out my “Best of Default User” book.

    I’m admiring the webmaster, nice job on the design. Looks like your site can handle heavy traffic.
    I’m only a little bit drunk, I’m sorry. Please don’t judge.
    How come some websites, like yours, appear all the way on the bottom of ranks with such engaging content?
    When I see my comments being removed I get upset. I’m not the one who should get upset.

    Thanks very much for this great post,this is exactly the type of blog that will keep me returning to read your updates. I had been searching around for your type of review after being asked to visit them from a colleague and was thrilled when I found it. Being a avid blogger, I’m happy to see others taking the initivative and contributing to the online community. I would like to comment to show my appreciation for your blog as it’s very challenging to do, and many bloggers do not get the appreciation they truely deserve. I’ll be sure to visit again and will spread the word to my friends.

    Thanks a lot for posting this data, I really do not know about anyone else, but I can totally make use of it.

    It may not be a very good comment, but funny because it was posted on the spam post itself.

    The next time I learn a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I mean, I do know it was my choice to read, however I truly thought youd have something attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you might fix should you werent too busy in search of attention.
    [DU: Well at least you don’t attempt sycophantic flattery like all the others.]
