So I’m still new at this thing we call blogging. I don’t have a routine down yet; no go-to websites nor have I staked my claim on my blogging zen zone in my house just yet. So far, I’m winging it. For the most part stuff has pissed me off and hooray I have an app for that! When I find myself a little stuck I head over to the Comments section of our website, I’m an admin..yep ADMIN. Anyways with privilege comes responsibility and I must approve and/or TRASH whatever retort any of ‘my readers’ have written. The power is fantastic (insert muwahahahahaha and hand wringing).
At first I was super psyched to see that anyone commented so if you wrote something I would pretty much approve it. If your comment had a smily face = approved, multiple exclamation marks = you’re in, if you mentioned how brilliant you found me = welcome home.
Then after I sobered up from being drunk off my new found fame, I forced myself to notice a pattern and see that no…these weren’t… shall I dare to utter it… fans? No, these were spams.
That was a sad day.
Now I’m not super naive, I knew a comment was spam if I saw:
- I would like to intern for you…
- Are you not making enough $ off your blog?
- A URL for penis enlargement (on a side rant, won’t people who want this bad enough find you? Is an ad for penis enlargement something that pops on your screen and people think ‘huh, never thought about it, but hell it’s right in front of me, where’s my debit card?’)
But there were comments that slipped by me before I started to catch on. Like this one, starts off okay, we don’t sell any goods but we do have prior videos and, well they are extremely excellent… then you totally lost me:
|Excellent goods from you, man. I’ve be aware your stuff prior to and you’re simply extremely excellent. I really like what you have received right here, certainly like what you’re stating and the way in which wherein you say it. You’re making it enjoyable and you still take care of to stay it wise. I can not wait to learn much more from you. That is actually a great web site.|
At first I thought, maybe this reader is just stupid, but then you get 10 just like it and it all comes together.
This one made me think I had an international fan to whom English was a second language, so I pitied them and approved:
|I beloved as much as you will receive performed right here. The comic strip is attractive, your authored material stylish. nevertheless, you command get bought an impatience over that you want be delivering the following. sick undoubtedly come more before again as exactly the same just about very often within case you shield this increase.|
Why is my spam so incoherent, its like they weren’t even trying, its kind of insulting really. I bet Perez Hilton gets better spam.
I have no excuse for this one, I just wanted to approve one…..
|hi, paramount blog on suety loss. such a thing helped.|
By don’t pity me. My cousin facebooked me that he digs the blog and Karyn and I had a witty texting back and forth last Tuesday and my newest fan Denis has commented…..twice…..Booyah!
