Spam, spam, spam, eggs and spam

Thanks to the Blogger spam filters I haven't had more than a trickle of spam lately. But here are some oldies that I saved for you.

These comments are written as requests for technical help, hoping I will fall for the ruse.

I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I'm thinking about creating my own but I'm not sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions?

I'm curious to find out what blog platform you're using? I'm having some small security problems with my latest site and I'd like to find something more safe.

Do you have a spam issue on this site; I also am a blogger, and I was curious about your situation;

Hey there! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine Optimization?

Nice blog here! Also your site loads up very fast! What host are you using? Can I get your affiliate link to your host?

Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?

What's up, I desire to subscribe for this website to obtain newest updates, so where can i do it please assist.

These spammers go a bit farther and try to convince me that there is something wrong with my blog. Perhaps you've received similar "warnings":

When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Cheers!

Hey there just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren't loading properly. I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same outcome.

Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment.

Currently it appears like Movable Type is the preferred blogging platform available right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you're using on your blog?

I did however expertise several technical issues using this website, as I experienced to reload the website a lot of times previous to I could get it to load properly. I had been wondering if your hosting is OK?

Hey, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

Oh my goodness! Impressive article dude! Thanks, However I am going through difficulties with your RSS. I don't know the reason why I am unable to join it. Is there anyone else having similar RSS issues?

Finally, here's a collection of spammy comments telling me how useful my blog is for their workplace. Unless they are employed in a dungeon, I doubt that my spanking posts will help them write their weekly reports.

It is often very terrific plus jam-packed with amusement for me personally and my office co-workers to visit your site nearly 3 times a week to learn the newest items you have got.

Thank you for every other great article. Where else may just anyone get that type of info in such an ideal way of writing? I've a presentation next week, and I'm on the look for such information.

What's Taking place i am new to this, I stumbled upon this I have discovered It absolutely useful and it has aided me out loads. I am hoping to give a contribution & assist other customers like its helped me. Good job.

LoL Hermoine, at least some spam does have some entertainment value :)

I moderate all to keep the spam off my blog. The spam filter catches most of it and I catch the rest!

Hermione said...

Roz - Yes, it does make me laugh sometimes.

DtBHC - Glad you recognized the reference. It's still a favourite of mine.

DR - That's an excellent approach.

Hugs,
Hermione

Hi Hermione, most of this is silly stuff, but the filters seem to be better all in all.

I liked the last category best, because I'd love to hear about the presentation on spanking this guy was going to give.

Or even better, I'd like to see the company that fulfills the needs of their customers so extremely well and spanking related. :)

It seems spanking has become completely main stream by now!


hugs

Entertainment value, as Roz said. Some of them are amazing.

ronnie said...

LOL.

I hate both types of spam:)

I've had a couple of similar ones, site loading quickly and having comments eaten.

Love,
Ronnie

I decided “what the hell” I’ll try accessing your blog at work. I was immediately greeting by a blocked site message and then got an email from IT Security wondering why I tried going there. The head of my company’s IT Security department is rather hot looking so I’m hoping she’ll stop by to give me a spanking for trying.

ROFLMBO Hermione...my favorites are the ones where it is very obvious they don't have a clue as to what they are saying because the words are not used correctly and are not in the proper order. But my absolute favorite is "I've a presentation next week, and I'm on the look for such information." Would love to know what post(s) they are using in their presentation! :D

Hugs and Blessings...

Hermione said...

Nina - I'd like to work for those companies myself!

Leigh - They sure are.

Ronnie - I just got one today about multiple emails for comments.

Sir Wendel - I guess my blog has made the big time - banned by IT Security!

Cat - I wonder if they'll have a hands-on demonstration to supplement the PowerPoint.

Hugs,
Hermione

Hermione -- Naturally, I get a lot of these, too. No matter how hard they try to disguise themselves, they always give themselves away because the last line is ALWAYS "visit my website..." or "BTW my website is..."
