Spam…

Spam….I’m not talking about the stuff you eat, I’m talking about the comments.  The junk that shows up in “your in box”.  The stuff that could make your computer sick.  The stuff carrying a virus that antibiotics can’t fix.  That annoying, unwanted mail.

I never gave much thought to the spam in my WordPress in box until NMN over at NMNPHX starting doing posts on some of the spam she receives.  Some are just too funny and make absolutely no sense.  Are these comments coming out of Nigeria?  You know the ones trying to send me an inheritance from a long-lost relative.  All I have to do is send them money for shipping/administration and I’ll be a millionaire.  Yeah, and I have a bridge to sell ya!

Are these comments computer generated?  Who or what are the generators of

no spam!

these comments making me and my grammatic errors look like an English scholar?  And then……am I in need of some help or assistance in the ‘sex’ department?  Really people!  If I didn’t have such a great sense of humor, I might be offended.  Yep, I used to just empty my spam in box without reading, but find myself actually reading them before hitting the delete button.  As I quizzically read these comments, my head tilts to one side.  Allow me to share……….

  1. LOL! Thanks for the nod! I’m glad you found some amusing SPAM of your own. I’ve received the “sex date” one several times since I’ve had this blog. That, and the person who wants to help me achieve better SEO rankings. 😦

  2. Happy Trails to you. The spam is worth an occasional read. I’m just glad most of it doesn’t come through my email. The surprise is that every so often a genuine comment shows up in there. Sometimes someone who has been innocently commenting for many months without a problem. Go figure.

  3. Yeah, spam comments can be really freaky, scary, and sometimes illuminating (not!). They are good for laughs though if you’re willing to wade through them.
