Spam Spam Spam Spam

We interrupt your musical programming for this brief rant about Spam.

Since I use WordPress for this blog and my regular website, I use the Spam catching plugin called Askimet. It works wonderfully weeding out all of the spam comments that most websites have to deal with on a daily basis. With Askimet, I can simply delete all of the spam with a simple flush click. This is useful, considering how much spam I get. For example, at the moment, I have 381 spam comments current held by Askimet. (That is a 3 day accumulation!)

Sometimes I like to check out the contents of the spam comments before I delete them. I did this today and found some very strange comments. I suspect there are some issues with these spamsters with their English translation. Here are a few examples of the strange posts I find in my spam filter:

Someone from “Cheap Uggs” (WTF is an Ugg?) wrote the following messages:

It might appear a little bit of unfamiliar getting hold of your new my father big boy pants to have dad’s Day.

I studied the first magnetic generator somebody decided on.

Columbia used to sell large sweatpants which is need favourable rates, and yet that doesn’t look like leading them to presently,

Talking about waxing poetic, eh?

Someone named “Gospel” added:

F*ckin’ amazing things here. I am very satisfied to peer your post. Thank you a lot and i am taking a look forward to touch you. Will you kindly drop me a e-mail?

and

your dog’s first football casino shoe, the entire chat the superstar, was already released with 1917, although the man about your great outcomes Charles H Taylor was to enter the image a long time newer.

Brilliant!

Anyway, you get the point. Thank goodness for Askiment!

End of Rant!
