I’ve been sparing you the details of most of the blog spam that comes my way – in fact, in the first quarter of this year alone, Akismet has blocked ~850 spam comments for me – thank you, Akismet!). That said, I am still astonished by some of the comments and can’t help but share them with you. To another round!
“Most heavy duty trailer hitches are developed employing cutting edge computer aided models and fatigue stress testing to ensure optimal strength. Share new discoveries along with your child and maintain your child safe by purchasing the correct style for your lifestyle by following the Perfect Stroller Buyers Guideline.”
OK. Who can tell me what heavy duty trailer hitches and baby strollers have in common?
“I to assuredly thrilled to trick payment across your totality trap dividing and look presumptuous to pot-pourri of more without tantamount times reading here. Thanks in days gone on again special seeking all the details.”
I’m perplexed. “…thrilled to trick payment across your totality trap…” I consider myself fairly good at untangling warped language, especially the sort that is created by those who do not hold English as their first language, but I’m just plain lost on this one.
“oh happy day, the end times are upon us”
I only hope that when my time comes, I can look upon the “end times” with such optimistic abandon.
I am still amazed by the amount of spam I used to get while on WordPress and eventually lost my blog to a phishing outfit. I haven’t had that problem with Blogger. Whatever they use is mighty powerful.
I am as bemused as you ?:) There appears to be two types of spam. One is so unintelligible it is funny and the other type is extremely dull and boring.
How is your new job going?
Not so great – it seems the real demands of the job were communicated in a less than forthcoming fashion while I interviewed – lots of 12-15 hours days, middle of the night meetings – suffice it to say my search continues. 🙂
Sometimes there is almost poetry in some of this mangled, poorly translated nonsense. “Thrilled to trick payment across your totality trap” probably wouldn’t have been out of place in James Joyce.
