Just like everyone else, my blog often gets spammy comments, which are usually caught by my spam filter so I don’t have to read them. But sometimes the spam filter has a brain fart or something, and spam gets through anyway. Most of the time this is simply annoying, because it means I have to spend my time telling the spam filter about the spam and deleting it – which sort of defeats the whole purpose of a spam filter, right?
But sometimes I get a kick out of the spam because it is so asinine, so off-topic, so just-plain-stupid that it makes me laugh. Here’s a recent spam comment to one of my Haiku Friday posts from 2010 (why do spambots comment on old posts?) Tell me if this makes you laugh too – I swear I have not changed it at all.
“Definitely believe that that you stated. Your favourite reason seemed to be on the web the simplest factor to take into account of. I say to you, I certainly get irked even as folks think about issues that they just don’t understand about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect , other folks can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thank you”
Laughter is good for your health. Thanks, Spambot!
