Not just for breakfast

We all get our share of spammy comments on our blogs, and sometimes I think I'm getting way more than my fair share. Still, there are some comments that make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside; that is, until I see that the comment includes a link to knock-off perfumes, discount drugs, cheap holidays, or other nonsense.

If I truly believed these spammers, my head would be very large indeed. But I know that these comments are made on thousands of blogs, so I take them for what they're worth - nothing.  Here are a few of the most complimentary ones. As you read them, keep in mind that they are referring to a spanking blog, and enjoy!

Excellent website. Lots of helpful information here. I am sending it to a few friends ans additionally sharing in delicious. And of course, thank you for your sweat!

I delight in, result in I discovered exactly what I was having a look for. You have ended my 4 day lengthy hunt!

I am glad for commenting to make you be aware of of the great discovery my wife's princess had studying your site. She came to find a good number of issues, which include how it is like to have an ideal coaching mood to get certain people clearly comprehend a number of extremely tough subject matter. You actually exceeded readers' expectations.

Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.

I must thank you for the efforts you've put in writing this site. I am hoping to see the same high-grade blog posts from you later on as well.

I'm impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that's equally educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.

It's a pity you don't have a donate button! I'd most certainly donate to this excellent blog! I guess for now i'll settle for bookmarking

It's amazing to go to see this web page and reading the views of all mates about this piece of writing, while I am also zealous of getting experience.

Terrific work! That is the type of information that are supposed to be shared around the web. Shame on the seek engines for no longer positioning this submit higher!

Nice post. I was checking continuously this blog and I'm impressed! Extremely useful information specially the remaining phase :) I handle such information a lot. I was seeking this certain information for a long time.

This website was... how do you say it? Relevant! ! Finally I've found something which helped me. Thanks!

On the flip side, many of the spammers try the opposite tack. They complain and criticize in the hopes that I will respond to defend myself (and in the process perhaps I might buy some fake designer handbags or male member enlargers). All spelling and grammar errors have been retained (aargh!)

The very next time I read a blog, I hope that it won't disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read through, but I actually thought you'd have something useful to say. All I hear is a bunch of crying about something that you could possibly fix if you were not too busy seeking attention.

I do not even understand how I finished up right here, but I believed this post used to be good.

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

Thank you, I have recently been searching for info approximately this subject for a while and yours is the best I have discovered till now. But, what in regards to the conclusion? Are you sure in regards to the supply?

naturally like your website however you have to test the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very troublesome to tell the truth

I believe what you said made a bunch of sense. However, what about this? suppose you added a little information? I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your blog, however what if you added something to maybe get people's attention? I mean "Spam and spankings" is kinda boring. You might add a video or a related pic or two to get readers interested about what you've written. In my opinion, it would bring your blog a little bit more interesting.

I do consider all the concepts you've introduced on your post. They're really convincing and can definitely work. Still, the posts are too quick for beginners. May just you please prolong them a bit from subsequent time?

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me.

Spelling mistakes? I don't think so! Spam and spankings boring? Oh well, you win some and you lose some.

LoL Hermione, some of these are hilarious. I'm convinced spam is on the increase. Argh!

Spam and spankings boring?? ... no way! LoL


Our Bottoms Burn said...

You collect these??? You really need less free time. Grin.

English is not their first language. Or should I say there first language? You, Erica and Bonnie would not say that English is my first either. The spanking bloggers grammar police. Smiling with teeth showing.

Katie said...

LOLOL Hermione! Too funny! The one with "hit the nail on the head" should read hit the bottom with the hand... Or something like that! Who needs all this junk cluttering up their blogs?? Very creative post! :). Many hugs,

<3 Katie

Good post.

Spam comments are definitely on the rise. I don't read them just delete but next time I will.


Aimless Rambling said...

I have received many of those same comments and get a laugh out of them.

Anonymous said...

My radar pings whenever I get a comment on my blog with no context to it. These comments are so generic that they'd apply to a blog about corn flakes. Sure enough, as I read on there is some sort of pitch. I hate these things. Grrrr. Thanks for helping me see the humor in this.

Hermione said...

Roz - It was so funny to see "spam and Spanking" in what are usually generic comments.

Bogey - I collect anything blog- or spanking-related.

Don't worry; none of us will ever criticize your grammar or spelling.

Katie - That's what I though about that comment too. Wrong part of the anatomy :(

Ronnie - I didn't read them until I saw the potential for a post or two.

Leigh - I think many of us will recognize them.

Rollin - It's better to laugh at spam than to cry; save that for when you're OTK!


A. Lurker said...

Hi Hermione,
A lot of these comments sound like they were written in a foreign language then plugged into a translator that gave a literal translation with no regard for English grammar rules.

"Nous avons acheté la barbe de papa dans le magasin rouge" literally means "We bought father's beard in the store red" but really means "We bought cotton candy at the red store".

Literal translations can be quite funny at times or can get you into lots of trouble!


Hermione said...

A. Lurker - I'm sure Google Translator has a lot to answer for. I'll have some great examples of that in my next post about spam.


Anonymous said...

I get lots of spam as well. Better than nasty comments I guess.


Erica said...

I get these too, and others, like the one that complains that my blog loads too slowly.

Yes, you can call me grammar police, if you like. Just don't call me grammar Nazi or I will show my teeth as well. :-)

Minielle Labraun said...

It seems like certain posts attract the spammers...

Hermione said...

Joey - Much better.

Erica - I have some technical problem-temed spam to share next.

Minelle - Quite often it's very old ones that are the target.
