Just like the Big Kids

My blog has recently been targeted by a massive spamming campaign.  You know the kind - the phony compliments in badly translated English, followed by a link to some goofy spammy web page.  (Like, genital warts?  Seriously?  Is there big money in genital warts?  And is the money in the curing or the causing?  Though I'm not curious enough to actually click on the link...

A few of my favorites from my last post (and keep in mind that my last post was about snot and a knitting pattern):

Thanks so much for giving everyone remarkably pleasant possiblity to read in detail from here. It is usually so superb plus packed with a great time for me personally and my office co-workers to visit the blog at a minimum three times weekly to learn the newest issues you have. And of course, I am usually satisfied concerning the thoughts served by you. Selected two ideas in this post are essentially the simplest I've ever had.  And visit my website "Spam spammity spam spam spam"
Those two ideas were snot and Frost.  Just sayin.

If some one desires expert view about blogging afterward i suggest
him/her to pay a quick visit this blog, Keep up the fastidious job.
Here is my website ... "Spam spam spam with a side of spam"

Fastidious job.  I'll do my best.

 I would like to express some thanks to you for bailing me out of this matter. As a result of exploring through the the web and getting views which are not productive, I believed my entire life was over. Living minus the approaches to the issues you've solved through this guideline is a critical case, as well as ones which may have negatively damaged my career if I hadn't encountered your blog. Your good mastery and kindness in dealing with a lot of things was precious. I don't know what I would've done if I hadn't encountered such a stuff like this. I am able to at this moment relish my future. Thanks for your time very much for this expert and amazing guide. I will not be reluctant to suggest your blog post to anyone who requires direction on this area. "I got more spam than anybody spam spam spam"
 I'm so glad that my snot generating prowess has given you the will to live.  I always try to use my powers for good.

And this one is somehow my very favorite:
I drop a comment each time I appreciate a article on a site or I have something to contribute to the discussion. It's triggered by the sincerness displayed in the post I looked at. And after this article "Still here. Really.". I was actually excited enough to post a leave a responsea response :-) I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you usually do not mind. Could it be just me or do a few of these remarks appear as if they are coming from brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing on other sites, I'd like to keep up with you. Could you make a list all of your communal sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
Also see my web page - Spam spam spam with a side of spam and more spam on top and served on a huge pile of spam

I don't know if it's the quirky misspellings or the writer's excitement at leaving "a responsea response" or the gratuitous insult to my readers that makes this one stand out.  Or could it be the request for any other venue I might have, in order to follow me and spam me even harder?  Whatever.  This one is just hard to beat.

I can hardly wait to open my email tomorrow!

I have got to ask. Comment #3, did you correct the spelling of 'bail' for the content or did they actually get it right? And I am so glad I am so far down on the food-chain that I haven't gotten any comments like this on my blog.(knock on wood)

I've always considered you especially fastidious. Sincerely, one of your brain dead commenters.

I had 13 spam comments yesterday, it must be going around.

My all-time favourite two spams were the one offering to teach me how to talk to the dead, and the one from someone claiming to have been kidnapped by the Russian Mafia and forced to post spam comments on blogs. He said he would be killed if I didn't click on the link, but after a screenshot I deleted it anyway. At least that one had some creativity to it!

The one where your snot-producing capabilities gave that guy the will to live is my favorite. Are you secretly the superhero Snotwoman? L-)
