I saw this in my spam folder tonight.My guess is that it appeared in my spam folder because it is, in fact, spam. I mean why would THE Ellen DeGeneres send me, completely out of the blue, a comment on this post that I wrote a month and a half ago and write, “Good story to hear”?
Definitely sounds like spam to me. Still, I was secretly tempted to believe that the actual Ellen DeGeneres found that post, enjoyed it, and took the time to comment on it. I was even tempted to like her comment and respond to it.
When I told my wife that Ellen DeGeneres commented on one of my posts, she laughed. “Yeah, you wish,” she said. “Maybe she was so impressed with your post that she’ll invite you to appear on her TV show.”
“You think so?” I asked, at which point she gave me a quizzical look.
“No!” she said. “What Fantasyland are you living in, anyway? It’s definitely spam.”
So I hit “Delete Permanently.”
Still, though, I wonder….
