Fun with Spam #8

September 18, 2019 Let's Discuss, Spam 36

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!

  1. Aj @ Read All The Things!

    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 . . . .

    • Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction

      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!

    • Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction

      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! 😉

  2. Shannon @ It Starts at Midnight

    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!

    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.

  4. Nicci @ Sunny Buzzy Books

    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! 😂

  5. Dani @ Perspective of a Writer

    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…

  6. Greg

    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. :):)

  7. Lola

    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.

  8. Jen

    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!
