Constructive Criticism and other kinds of spam

I don’t know how this bitty blog has done it, exactly, but we have hit the spam jackpot. I made the decision a few months ago to disable the word verification option for the blog but that means that my inbox is flooded with spam comments from Anonymous. Anonymous kind of has a one track mind. Its primary focus is geared around my seeming need for cheap Viagra. I really like feel like Anonymous has a pulse on its key demographic, by the way.

And sometimes Anonymous sends me short messages like this: “Here's a the cheapest down jacket sales.Come on.
canada goose parka”

…No, YOU come on.

Sometimes, though…Anonymous gets personal:

“I think everything said was actually very reasonable.
But, what about this? suppose you added a little content?
I am not saying your information is not good, but what if you added something that
grabbed folk's attention? I mean "Computer says, cough, cough" is a little boring. You should peek at Yahoo's
home page and see how they create article headlines to get viewers to
click. You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to get readers interested about everything've written. In my opinion, it might make your posts a little livelier. Here’s a link to my site: cheaplaptops.fakewebsite.net”

Dude. Not cool. If you’re going to troll my website, at least have the decency to suck up to me like the valium peddlers and the Nigerian princes who want me to claim my inheritance! Come on. Canada goose parka!

What’s your favorite kind of spam?

love, elizabeth

LOL! Elizabeth, you crack me up. Someone e-mailed me a little while ago asking me if they could be on my bloglist. They were basically selling something and didn't even have a legit blog. Your anonymous is way better, though! Let me know if you ever break down and get that parka.

So THAT's what's happening! I disabled word verification the other day and yesterday alone anonymous sent me THREE comments! I thought I was starting to be likable enough to have a secret admirer named anonymous... Funny post.

I don't even read mine, but I might now if it's going to cheer me up! I get so much spam I was almost tempted to word verify again!

I'm not sure if I have a favorite sort of spam to be honest. Since I'm on wordpress, I have a automatic feature that detects and stops spam from going onto my blog.

I don't like spam. Lol
