Spam-Bam Thank You Ma’am (July 2014)

The above title is apparently irresistible to my readers.  Welcome to the newest feature of this blog (definitely something to look forward to each month!)

InsertJokeHereI find it amusing that everyone loves my responses to spammers, given the fact that I am one of those people who gets involved in an altercation of some kind and then several hours later thinks:  “Damn, I should have said …” 

I’ve noticed that some comments which have found their way into my spam filter are ones that appear to offer me payment for either guest posting or linking back to the commenter’s website.  I assume these comments are, in fact spam, but please note:

If you legitimately wish me to guest post, or to write an article for your website, please send me an email with the details (cordeliasmom2012@yahoo.com).

And so, on to this month’s edition of Snarks ‘R Us (well, I think that title is cute, even if no one else does).

(As usual, apologies to the appropriate commenter if any of the following weren’t, in fact, spam.  I realize that some comments suffer in translation, and I try to take that into account when determining what is spam and what is legitimate.)

Comment:

“I create a comment each time I like a article on a site or I have something to contribute to the discussion. It’s caused by the passion displayed in the article I browsed. And on this article More Fun With Spam | Cordelia’s Mom, Still. I was excited enough to write a comment 🙂 I do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind. Could it be just me or do a few of the remarks appear like they are written by brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are posting on other online sites, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Would you list all of all your public pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?”

Response:

Gotta love this one – a spammer commenting on my responses to spammers!  And yes, more than a few of the remarks appear like they are written by brain dead visitors.  Actually, some of my legitimate comments seem to fall into that category, as well.  By the way, there is a button on my home page to link to my Facebook page, but I don’t have a Twitter feed.  So sorry.

“Hi would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re utilizing?
I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you recommend a good hosting provider at a reasonable price? Kudos, I appreciate it!”

Response:

You do realize, of course, that you found me on the FREE WordPress.com site?

 Comment:

“Its like you read my thoughts! You seem to understand a lot approximately this, like you wrote the ebook in it or something.  I think that you just can do with some p.c. to drive the message hous a little bit, however instead of that, this is fantastic blog. A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.”

Response:

I am reading your thoughts, and they tell me that you will, in fact, be back – probably with the same comment on several other posts, maybe more than once.

LollipopComment:

“what means lol”

Response:

Leaping Over Lollipops.  (You should use it every chance you get.)

Comment:

“Thank you so much for this! I havent been this moved by a blog for quite some time! Youve got it, whatever that means in blogging. Well, You are definitely someone that has something to say that people should hear. Keep up the good work. Keep on inspiring the people!”

Response:

I so wish this wasn’t a spam comment, but the fact that you attempted to put it on my post about wishing I were somewhere else, while at the same time claiming you were “moved” by that silly post, would seem to indicate that WordPress was right to relegate this comment to the spam folder.  Feel free to try again!

Comment:

“The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as significantly as this 1. I mean, I know it was my option to read, but I really thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is often a bunch of whining about some thing that you simply could fix when you werent too busy looking for attention.”

Puppy Cody

Well, this one just breaks my heart.  I am just so sorry that you thought I was whining when I wrote about the excitement of finding my new puppy at the SPCA.  The puppy sure was looking for attention, though, which is why I took her home.  Maybe you’ll find one of my future posts worthy of your interest; actually, I’m sure you will and that you will have another appropriate comment at that time.

There are just too many spam comments to include them all.  Watch for more CookieCakes snarkiness in August!

  1. I get a kick out of going through my spam basket, as well. Love both titles, btw, but then, I am biased because “snark” IS one of my favorite words. 😉 In other words: This is so informational and shiny! Blogs like this I love and share with other around the world with your hosting company that loads fast! ♥♥♥

    Love the pic of the lollipop – just waiting to be leapt over (Leaped? – just checked, can be either). A lollipop leapter. Ha! (Had to write it down and see how it looked – cool.) Great post CM – I am aware that the subjects you have written upon are very high in importance to the world. That being of interest to the Majesty’s Council makes you the best in this than anyone. You must contact my government to get all he money just waiting for you in the Federal Bank of Nigeria and sourced by FedEx. Please to confirm all your personal information to match our records and prove you are who the Royal Kumquats insist to give money. Hurry.

      (I was kinda hoping the phrase “Leaping Over Lollipops” would go viral. 🙂 )

    Leaping Lollipops Batman, it should. The brain-dead commenter has been to my site a couple of times. He wants to sell a course on how to write better blogs. 😦

    Love it! Followed your link from Art’s blog, now I have to check out your other spam-bam posts! You get relatively coherent spams, the ones I get are all gibberish.
