I’m excited to say that spammers have figured out ways around those pesky checkboxes in the comments section, and I now have plenty of new material for these spam posts again! So…
It’s time for a new installment of Fun with SPAM, where we peek into the abyss of the Spam folder to find a few gems and imagine … what if I were really going to reply to these random crazy comments?
Take a look at what I might say:
Fantastic put up, very informative. I wonder why the opposite specialists of this sector don’t understand this. You must continue your writing. I’m confident, you have a great readers’ base already!
I put up with a lot, let me tell you. I have no idea why my opposition doesn’t understand all the brilliant points I’ve made! They’re obviously just jealous. This book blogging world is cutthroat. But you have inspired me—I will continue my writing, thanks to your confidence in me!
It makes for great travel tips Shilpa. I make it a point to reach the airport three hours before the scheduled time to avoid unnecessary hassle and feel important to travel light plus keeping a travel kit in place for frequent flyers.
Okay, I’m going to be really honest here and tell you that I DON’T necessarily recommend following any of the travel tips expressed in the post you commented on (a review of Time Traveling with a Hamster).
Time travel can be tricky. And bringing your hamster along only makes it more so. I’d stick to your own advice of traveling light—leave the hamster at home.
I really love your road trip! And yes, the shirt is fabulous, too ? So glad you made it back home safely. If blisters were the worst thing to happen, you did pretty well!
Wow, there really does seem to be a lot of confusion about this Time Traveling with a Hamster review. I don’t think I’d consider time travel a “road trip,” and I’m not exactly sure where I’d get blisters while doing it (maybe on my brain??). Still, I’m glad you like my shirt—I’m really fond of the one I’m wearing today.
Thank yοu for the auspіcious writeup. It in fact useⅾ to Ƅe a entertainment account it.
Gance advanced to mote deⅼivered agreeable from you! However, how cɑn we communicate?
Yes, communication does seem to be an issue here, I agree. I’m not sure what language you’re communicating in, to be honest. I’ll confess that I only know English (sadly my Spanish skills dissipated quickly after high school), so you should probably stick with that for future comments.
Thanks a whole lot this excellent website is definitely proper in addition to casual.
I’ve worked hard to strike a balance between proper and casual around here. I mean, it’s hard to be too proper when you’re blogging in your PJs, but somehow I manage it.
Tremendous things here. I am very satisfied to look your post. Thank you a lot and I’m looking forward to touch you. Will you please drop me a e-mail?
Ummm… Honestly, I’m not comfortable with this. I would prefer if you continue to look without touching.
I quite like reading a post that can make men and women think. Also, thanks for allowing for me to comment!
So true! I hate all those posts that make women think but the men just sit around doing nothing. So unfair!
You will need moves through space their own behalf to steer and leisurely shop at their own pace. Attractive mugs with photos can get offers for as gift items. He says that it is, in his opinion, bigger than love.
Wow, I’m not quite sure what this all means, but I think there might be something truly profound here. I mean, what could be bigger than love? (Obviously, attractive mugs with photos—I don’t know how I didn’t see this before.)
Whereas reading involves both the physical and also mental; however, reading remains primarily a mental movements. Look as you own the room, anywhere you go. Is actually usually the small things in life, which keep the hearth burning.
My commenters have suddenly gotten very deep and metaphysical. Such wise words being shared here today! I must keep them handy for further study.
The local Indians were instructed to leave their homeland within this period. So why not to purchase some cheaply in your own home, particularly if its international cost is likely to hit $2,000 an ounce pretty soon. As opposed to currencies and other investments, that happen to be relatively unpredictable, gold is regarded as by specialists being the safest investing alternative.
Okay, I’m sorry but I have to put my foot down here on this racist comment. Native Americans have been grossly mistreated, and I think it’s horrifying that you suggest I purchase them for my home (no matter how cheap they are per ounce). Seriously, you are a repugnant person, and I need you to leave my blog immediately.
See, spam really can be fun! If you liked this post, check out my past spam posts—they’re good for a laugh!
Do you ever read your spam? Does it make you laugh? Remember any crazy spam comments? I want to know!
Hahaha, now I want to review the hamster time travel book just for the spam. I have a review for a short story collection called Stone Mattress on my blog. People constantly leave ads for mattress stores in the comments.
OMG, that Indian comment . . . .
Yeah, it’s so weird because that review was posted almost three years ago, and I suddenly got a whole slew of travel-related spam comments on it a month or so ago. I’m not quite sure how that happens—it must have gotten linked somewhere or something.
I think if you have a stone mattress, you might need a new one, so those ads are a good idea. LOL!
” Can we communicate?” lol Don’t you just love all the weird spam you get? Those were some gems.
There was a definite lack of communication going on in this post! LOL!
I love when you do these posts! LOL! I’m laughing at my desk at work while I read them. I’d like to know what all this physical part of reading is. Turning pages? Holding the book? And wow, you’d better not be purchasing any Native Americans.
That is pretty much my ultimate goal with these posts—to make everyone’s work day just a little funnier! 🙂
I almost choked on my lunch reading these. Spam is always a lot of fun but it seems your spam is more entertaining than what I seem to be getting.
Uh oh. Sorry to put your life in danger!
I think it helps that I have 800 spam messages to choose from at any given moment. I get plenty of boring ones too, but I can always find a few gems!
yes, i read all my spam and i don’t get anything as fun as yours. lol
Well if you read all your spam, you must not be getting nearly as much as me! I have 800 spam comments to choose from at any given time, so I can always find some fun ones.
Bwahahahaha Nicole! These are hilarious! How to mislead spammers with a hamster LOL
I don’t know what the deal was with that Time Traveling with a Hamster post—I suddenly got a TON of spam comments on the post (probably at least 30), even though I posted it two years ago. All weird travel ads. Guess I know where to go to get great travel advice in the future! 😉
Omg you know what these remind me of? That episode of Friends where Joey tries to write the adoption reference letter for Chandler and Monica but uses a thesaurus for every word until it makes absolutely no sense! That is what these spammers are! Well, that and they’re doubling down HARD on the hamster time travel. These cracked me up, I love them!
Oh, I remember that episode! It also reminds of that YouTube channel with the girl who sings songs that she’s put through Google Translate a dozen times or so (it’s hilarious!)—I’m guessing that’s the culprit here.
HA!! I love when you do these!! And I totally agree– you definitely have the right balance of proper and casual… tell me your ways!! How do you do it??? ?
Oh, it’s tough, let me tell you.
Wait, no, I can’t tell you because you’re one of the “opposite specialists of this sector” and you’re obviously just out to steal my secrets!!
This is such a fun post! I love that the time travel book got you some road trip advice. I enjoy reading my spam comments too, maybe I’ll have to start collecting them for another blog post.
These posts are always a favorite of mine! I love imagining what I might say to my spammers.
The Time Traveling Hamster comment was the hilarious. First of all, who’s Shilpa? But, I guess it was nice of him to give you air travel tips.
Yeah, I actually meant to call her Shilpa back in my reply but I forgot. I guess we’re all Shilpa in someone’s universe. LOL!
Lol, I loved the Time Travelling Hamster stuff and the touching and not to mention the purchasing people for your home…
I haven’t had any spam comments, I don’t think? If I have, I haven’t noticed on recent posts… Think I’m beneath a spammers notice! ?
You probably just don’t see your spam because it gets filtered. I’m able to see it in my spam folder. Don’t worry, I’m sure you’re plenty popular enough for people to ask to touch you. LOL!
Hahaha these spam posts are so funny. I do check out my spam but never get such funny comments!! I loved the Hamster one and the opposition in the book community. hahaha Actually mine tend to be all on one post where I blocked comments!! So odd…
I’ll bet you didn’t realize I had such tough opposition, right? I mean, my rivals are constantly speaking out against me; it’s tragic.
These are always so fun! And oh my gosh those comments- what even? It’s nice that you’re able to hit proper plus casual though- that’s a tough thing to do. :):)
Yes, that proper/casual balance is obviously a main goal around here, so I’m glad people have been noticing it. LOL!
Oh I need to do this. I love spam! lol Well, not really but it does make me laugh.
I always wonder what they hope to achieve by this. Like – will I buy a pair of shoes/cigarettes, mugs based on this???
I get a LOT of the spellcaster ones.
Karen @ For What It’s Worth
You should totally do one. It’s SO fun to think about how you would reply to this craziness.
I hate spam, but I always love your posts about it, lol.
At least it’s good for something, right? 🙂
Oh my gosh, this is such a funny post! I laughed so many times while reading, haha! That time traveling hamster comment was one of my favorites!
Glad I could brighten up your day!
Even if the spammers get past the checkboxes when you read the comments it’s still obvious they are spammers, some of these really make no sense with the post they replied to, but there are some funny ones too and I like your replies to them. Your review for Time Traveling hamster seems to be popular with the spammers.
Yes, I got SO many spam comments on that Time Traveling with a Hamster post all the sudden—I have no idea why they started cropping up!
I love that they said road trip in regards to time travel ?. It’s so simple anyone can do it, why not? HA! Thank you for the laugh!
I know, right? Let’s just go on a little time-traveling road trip. LOL!
