Nonsensical Blog Comments

When I started writing this blog, my plan was to build up some content before sharing the link with anyone. I was surprised to see comments start to roll in almost immediately. My ‘instant fans’ were in fact instant ‘spam.’ Comment spam is a common occurrence in blogs with spammers attempting to push out as many links to their products/services as possible.

WordPress, the software I chose to power my blog, has some built-in spam protection, but I wasn’t taking full advantage of that protection. I had assumed that comments were screened using some form of CAPTCHA (a test to prevent automated software from filling out forms or leaving comments in blogs). They weren’t and so automated programs were able to sneak spam into my blog as comments.

Comments still have to be approved, so blog spammers attempt to come up with something generic and positive so their comments (and therefore their links) will be approved and posted. Given that I had little in the way of real comments, I found my comment spam pretty entertaining:

As being a Newbie, I’m often searching on-line for content that will aid me. Thank you Wow! Thank you! I always desired to publish in my web site some thing like that.

Hello Newbie and you’re welcome! I’m happy to have aided you with my on-line content. Say, could you be less specific about the content you are referring to? I think not.

Sick of obtaining low numbers of useless visitors for your website? Well i want to share with you a new underground tactic that makes me personally $900 per day…

Well an underground tactic sounds appealing, but not enough to click on the link you supplied with your comment. Besides, an extra $900 a day will just spoil the wife…

Together with the whole thing that appears to be building inside this specific subject matter, your opinions are quite exciting. Nonetheless, I am sorry, but I do not give credence to your entire plan, all be it refreshing none the less.

Exciting and refreshing opinions? Yup, that’s me of course. Nonetheless, I am sorry, but I’m afraid I do not give credence to your entire comment.

This is the right blog for anyone who wants to find out about this topic. You realize so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I actually would want…HaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a topic thats been written about for years. Great stuff, just great!

Thanks for the comment “amateur love.” I wasn’t sure what topic you were most interested in until I saw the “amazing teen babes” link you provided. I’m sure clicking on your link would put a new spin on a topic that has been around on the internet for years. HaHa. Or perhaps it will just give me a virus.

I’m delighted that I have noticed this weblog. Finally anything not a junk, which we go through incredibly frequently. The website is lovingly serviced and saved as much as date. So it need to be, thank you for sharing this with us.

If you find that much internet junk, perhaps you need to be surfing in better internet neighborhoods?  It is probably a coincidence that I almost named this blog: “Finally anything not a junk.”

This is a genuinely beneficial go through for me, Need to confess that you’re one of the very best bloggers I ever saw.Thanks for posting this informative post.

Why thank you. I need to confess that I googled your comment and found you have told a lot of other bloggers that they are the very best. You are either an automated comment or not very discriminating. In either case, I found your comment genuinely not beneficial.

Can I just say what a relief to find someone who beyond doubt knows what they’re talking about on the internet. You as a matter of fact know how to bring an issue to light and make it comprehensive. More people need to read this and understand this side of the story. I cant believe youre not more popular because you definitely have the gift.

Why, this comment is so spot on that it must be genuine. Oops! I just confirmed that my mother did not write it which makes me a bit suspicious after all. I’m happy to have “the gift”, but perhaps I should get a second opinion?

I loved as much as you’ll receive carried out right here. The sketch is tasteful, your authored subject matter stylish. nonetheless, you command get got an edginess over that you wish be delivering the following. unwell unquestionably come more formerly again since exactly the same nearly very often inside case you shield this increase.

Huh? I should have quit while I was ahead. Lorem Ipsum to you too my automated spam friend.
