192

I haven’t checked the spam filter in several days……maybe a week. One hundred ninety-two of them! Wow I’m popular! And I write really informative posts that provide just the information the spammer was looking for!

Boy, I’m cool.

I usually scan through the spam and make sure that real comments haven’t gotten mixed in with the spam. But 192 of them? Nah.

  1. Well, this blog, in one form or another, has existed for 7 or 8 years. I used to run Bad Behavior which prevented a lot of bot access then the bots changed.

  2. I could easily get that number of spams in a week, but a few of mine are turning nasty. For example I’m often told to check my quotations more carefully or take a course in spelling and grammar (I’m very proud of my spelling and grammar). Some say I’ve written exactly what they were looking for (which is always nice to hear, even from a spammer). My most popular post for attracting spam was I Love the Octonauts (a children’s programme over here). Spammers clearly love them too – who knew?!

    1. Polly, you have spammers who criticize your spelling & grammar?!! That’s absurd & funny. Who are they? Retired language arts teachers with a grudge against all of humanity? I mean, really. My spammers just try to get me to follow them back by praising me. Not giving me a D- in punctuation.

      1. Bizarre, isn’t it! “Be more accurate in your quotations!” came two days ago from a cinema provider that I dont recognise. Someone claiming to be Louis Vuitton said they wished they “hadn’t seen this post because now I want one”. (Que?) Can’t find the one about spelling and grammar, it was a while ago. Maybe they wanted me to click their link in order to remonstrate with them. Just makes me smile. Delete, delete, delete.

        1. My favorites lately, whether they criticize my lack of google rank or tell me that the information was extremely valuable, are attached to those short little lists of daily gratitudes. Spambots seem to be slightly more sophisticated than they used to be but still so obviously identifiable.

  3. Oh, this is funny. I look forward to checking my blog spam filter — usually it’s appeals to ‘speed up my site’ or ‘check my facts’ — or polite phrases about my writing and style from commenters who link to porn sites! Not sure how I get on those lists!!

    1. Not sure how any of us did. Most of them are spambots and I think they just troll the net. Some of the worst show up on abandoned blogs.
