You might be a spammer if…

I just got around to deleting some spam comments for my blog. I had about a hundred or so, which is a lot. I’m not that big a blogging presence. For some reason, I decided to read them tonight instead of just deleting them. I’m kinda glad I did. It got funnier and funnier…

You might be a spammer if your comments go something like this:

  • “For your self-guidance, are able to go through top
    quality most-sought after available inside the market from the reputed pharmaceutical brands.” (Commenter links to an ED drug sales site.)
  • “Hi from United States!” (Um. Your email address says “.de” I don’t believe you.)
  • ” Wenn man bedenkt, dass Adulis einst dieselbe Rolle spielte, wie heute Massaua, in dem auch alle grossen Gebaeude fehlen.” Google translates this as: “If you consider that Adulis once played the same role as now, in which all the big buildings missing.” (It loses something in the translation.)
  • “Excellent Blog! gfkdkkeeecfegfba” (Thank you. fdasfdsaf)
  • “Thanks for sharing your thoughts about facebook. Regards.” (On a post about death and dying.)
  • “Thanks for sharing this interesting free payday loans post.” (messed up your html there a little, huh…)
  • “When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox now each time a comment is added I am four emails making use of the same comment. Possibly there is any way you’re able to eliminate me from that service? Thanks!” (From someone who runs a payday loans website. Sorry friend. You’re on your own.)
  • “i joined so numerous seo forum on the internet and they are truly quite useful and i have learned a good deal,”  (Well, you might need a review of punctuation and grammar.)
  • “Excellent blog here! Also your internet website loads up quickly! What host are you utilizing? Can I get your affiliate link to your host? I wish my website loaded up as rapidly as yours lol” (From a PC and tablet sales page.)
  • “Oh my goodness! Amazing article dude!” (I am not a dude. But thanks anyway.)
  • “He knew that it would be days short term loan payday loan which sir Frederic was killed.” (Another linking issue.)
  • “Its like you learn my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, such as you wrote the e book in it or something.” (Wow…)
  • “I appreciate you for posting when you have the opportunity, Guess I will just book mark this site.” (OK.)
  • “each time i used to read smaller content which also clear their motive, and that is also happening with this piece of writing which I am reading at this place.” (No clue. I think it’s a compliment?)
  • “I read this post completely on the topic of the comparison of hottest and previous technologies, it’s amazing article.” (This on an article about Lent.)

And finally, my personal favorite:

“hеllo there and thank you for your information – I’ve definitely picked up nothing new from right here.” (I’m speechless.)

And that, my friends, is why  you have to go through comment approval. I won’t be taking it off any time soon. Sorry. 😉
