Spam-Bam Thank You Ma’am (August 2014)

Yes, it’s time for the next edition of Blast the Spammers!

They’re getting more aggressive and more creative – some have actually managed to worm their way into my legitimate comments queue.  But I caught them.  (Keep trying, spammers!)

So without further ado, here is this month’s selection:

***

Comment:

“Cool blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog shine.
Please let me know where you got your theme. Many thanks.”

Response:

Not very observant, are you?  All of that information is listed at the bottom of my web pages.

Comment:

“Im not capable of view this web site properly on opera I feel theres a problem.”

Response:

I hate opera – those sopranos hurt my ears.

Comment:

“i’m sure i’ve skipped over much of what i have!”

Response:

I have no idea what you have, but suspect it’s not a great grasp of the English language.  Unless, of course, that comment was posted after a night of partying.

sundial“Wow, awesome blog layout! How long have you been blogging for?
you make blogging look easy. The overall look of your web site is magnificent, let alone the content!”

Response:

Thank you very much for the compliment!  How long have I been blogging?  Long enough to recognize a spammer – nice try.

“Greetings from Colorado! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to browse your site on my iphone during lunch break.

I love the information you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home.
I’m amazed at how quick your blog loaded on my cell phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, wonderful blog!”

Response:

If any of my readers are employers in Colorado, please note:  you may have an employee who needs a whole lot more work.

Comment:

“I observe there is plenty of spam on this weblog. Do you require assist cleaning them up? I may possibly help among classes!”

Response:

Sure, I can use a spammer to help clean up spam on my blog, especially a spammer who is class-conscious.

Comment:

“what does lms mean on facebook”

Response:

Lost My Shit.  It’s often used in conjunction with LOL (Leaping Over Lollipops).

All together now (ta-dum!):

LMS LOL

Lost My Shit Leaping Over Lollipops

(Am I good or what?!  Wanna hire me?)

♦♦♦

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

(As usual, apologies to the appropriate commenter if any of the foregoing 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.)

    • Don’t worry about it, Doobster. I can guarantee that spammer will return, over and over again!

      I actually had one that did spoof me, and I let a comment through. Now that spammer’s comments come in as pre-approved and hit my posts immediately. I then have to go in and delete them. Such fun – *almost* makes me wish I hadn’t started the spam-pam feature.
