Behind the Blog SE: Oh Yes, There Will be Spammers

spam driveZe spam… She just won’t stop!

Boy do I have a whole lot of lemons to contend with by allowing folks to post anonymous comments. Please allow me to pour you a tall glass of lemonade and have a brief chuckle over the absolutely insane stuff that dominates my mailbox every morning. These are actual, unmodified comments. Only the links have been removed to protect anyone dumb enough to click them.

This first one comes from part one of our massive four part gamer gift guide from 2011. Also note that this was just posted yesterday.

“Magnificent beat ! I wish to apprentice at the same time as you
amend your web site, how can i subscribe for a weblog web site?
The account aided me a appropriate deal. I had been a

little bit familiar of this your broadcast provided shiny

transparent concept

Feel free to visit my web page: (redacted spammer link)”

Ah, if only I could be so inspired as to create a shiny transparent concept every day!

Also from the very same 2011 post on the same day in 2013 comes this refreshingly honest comment:

“advertising

Feel free to surf to my web page – (redacted spammer link)

My page – (yup, a second redacted spammer link)”

And just two days earlier on that very same post:

“Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something informative to read?

Also visit my website; (Spam o Link)  My site :: (Link o Spam)”

I’ll save you the click. There’s no video on that article. And it’s a LONG article. And part one of four. Still, it’s nice to get feedback!

Next allow me to turn your attention to one of our Halloween specials, A Gaggle of Ghastly and Geeky Gourds for Halloween. It’s a post I’m STILL struggling to kill off spammy comments for. Here’s a sample of the latest:

“Αll Gаmеs haѕ thеiг Јune lol
My web site ... (spam link)”

“Stгiκe ωhile yοur nintendо dsi хl іѕ buгning =)
Also visit my weblog (not a chance)”

“Its just abοut аll хbοx to thе routine гofl :
D
Here is my web site :: (duh)”

“Any Xbox 720 shared is a issue cut in half =)
Here is my web site (you know)”

“It aint over up until thе flabbу Nintenԁo 3DS
XL sings :D
Here is my web site ; (etc.)”

Sure, we publish a number of video game articles. Ironically, this wasn’t one of ‘em.

Finally, we conclude this sample platter of mystery meat with a heart touching story that appeared recently on Lou’s July 2011 Out of This World Weekly article U.S.A. Without A Spaceflight Program? Absolutely Not!.

“Look at an ebook by doing this until such time as 1978 I personally came into Sichuan World Scientific tests Higher education.
At school, I paid several months, all the higher educatoin institutions should learn most
of the self-study. By 50 percent, I started participating in truant, normally towards Southwest Collage associated with
politics technology and also Legal ( the South west University or college with Political
Development and Laws).
On 1982, I seemed to be publicly stated to make sure you Chinese suppliers
Dangerous Matters University graduated pupils, in the instruction to a mentor, I have
got the greatest cause problems for In in to the near future Inches collection circulated his particular 1st works out on the eighties belonging
to the last century, Inch the other day, at present
together with later today In ., furthermore penned " the us associated with North america present day confidential Global Regulation The school ", this monograph soon after printed
during legal requirements hit.
Within 1985, I became a totally unbiased scholars.
All-around 1988, In The far east Youngsters Day to day Half inch shared a report
with the statements, said I got the best Oriental school self-employed.”

This touching tale was followed by a giant list of links, some working, some not, for such topics as “discount louis vutton,” “tutorial-heart-pouch,” and “fat-tabby-cat-inserted-into-world.”

Fun Fact: Three new spammy comments were posted during the creation of this article.
