Spam-o-Rama: Our non-readers speak!

CotC Word balloonsSo, a funny thing happens when you start a blog. Well, several funny things happen, but one of them is spam comments. After we’d been doing this a few weeks, I noticed that WordPress had been sequestering them in their own special spam folder, so I decided to take a look to make sure none of our readers’ comments had been put there by mistake.

I clicked on the “Spam” link to find a cornucopia of comments that had a heady blend of unabashed enthusiasm for our blog, and clear proof that the commenter had not, in fact, read the blog. They were so entertaining, I just had to share. By the way, just for context: all of these comments came from the Meet the Chicks page, so picture these comments in response to our bios…

My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find a lot of your post’s to be just what I’m looking for. I wouldn’t mind composing a post or elaborating on a number of the subjects you write about here.

Really? Our bios were just what you were looking for? Glad to hear it! I would love for you to elaborate on the subject of us! Tell me, what do you most like about us?

It’s going to be ending of mine day, but before ending I am reading this impressive paragraph to improve my knowledge.

Was it mine paragraph you found so impressive? We’re all about improving knowledge.

Paragraph writing is fun, if you know then you can write otherwise it is complicated to write.

Oh, we totally agree! Paragraph writing is the BEST!

I think that you should publish more on this topic, it might not be a taboo matter but typically folks don’t speak about such topics. To the next! Cheers!!

You’re right, folks don’t typically speak about our bios—at least not in polite company—but I am glad to hear that there is not an actual taboo against it.

We have the largest Atlanta supplier system to achieve out for your requirements to make car buying simple again.

Um…. sure!

We are a group of volunteers and starting a new scheme in our community. Your website provided us with valuable information to work on. You have performed a formidable process and our entire neighborhood will likely be grateful to you.

Wow, we’re always honored to help out with a scheme, and glad our valuable information was helpful. I can’t wait to see how your entire neighborhood chooses to honor us! Maybe a statue, or perhaps our faces carved into the side of a local mountain?

I am now not certain the place you’re getting your information, however great topic. Thank you for wonderful information, I was looking for this information for my mission.

Well, we did have to draw heavily on our own memories, but I’m glad you enjoy us collectively as a topic. And also—wait a minute! Your mission?

Hello! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my good old room mate! He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this page to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!

Could you let us know your good old roommate’s name? Just so we can make sure we get the spelling correct on the restraining order?

Magnificent goods from you, man. I have understand your stuff previous to and you’re just too wonderful. I really like what you have acquired here, certainly like what you are stating and the way in which you say it. You make it entertaining and you still take care of to keep it wise.

Keeping it wise! That’s us.

Why viewers still make use of to read news papers when in this technological world everything is existing on web?

Why, indeed!

Clearly our Meet the Chicks page has sparked an important dialogue that I hope you will continue in the comments below!

    • I know! That’s what’s so curious about this: There aren’t any links, so I have no idea what’s in it for them—unless it’s somehow related to their request that I visit their blog and leave my social security number in the comments. Hmmmm…..

  1. Next time I’m having writer’s block, I’m going to remind myself of this: “Paragraph writing is fun, if you know then you can write otherwise it is complicated to write.” I might just go ahead and make it my new signature in my email.

    • Hi, Margaret—and thanks! In the left-hand menu, click “WP Admin” to go to your dashboard, then in the upper left-hand corner you’ll see a box called “At a Glance.” Mine says “Akismet has protected your site from 177 spam comments already. There are 11 comments in your spam queue.” The 11 comments is a link (of course yours will be a different number) that will take you to your spam folder. Hope that helps!
