Say What?

For the most part, spam comments to Small Pond are a combination of gibberish and vague compliments. I suppose the point of the compliments is to play into my ego so I make the comment public and gazillions of readers will click on the spam link. I’ve yet to to do that.

SPAM! [don't buy]

The compliments, however, do serve as a nice ego boost now and then, particularly when a spammer takes the opposite approach and posts this on my About Me page:

The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.

Um … okay?

The same page also garnered this comment from a different spammer:

Oh their a different SPECIES now? Really? It’s funny when people are so racist they can’t even tell that the things they’re saying/writing are racist. By funny I mean, tragic.

English: Edmund Fitzgerald Anchor

Who knew Gordon Lightfoot was such a lightening rod for controversy? My apologies to anyone I offended by mentioning Edmund Fitzgerald.

Oh well. At least I have remarks like “You’re so cool” and “some really prime posts on this web site” in which to find solace. And I have remarks like the one below over which to ponder.

For Bob and Tim, it was a little intra office competition that is bringing out the best in both of them, even over the holidays.

    1. Now I feel left out – somehow the porn spammers have overlooked me! As have the save-your-soul spammers. I tend to get a lot of how to make your web site better junk next to the bizarre comments. Thanks for reading the blog.
