Spam Comment of the Week — Week 49 2022

I get some interesting spam comments on my blog, most of which are captured by Akismet, WordPress’ spam blocker. I generally do a mass delete of all of my spam comments after checking to see if any legitimate comments got caught up in Akismet’s spam-catching net.

I thought it might be fun to select a particularly interesting or unique or outrageous spam comment and highlight it each week.

This week’s spam comment came from “Shirley Folk” and was in response to my Fandango’s Provocative Question #190 post.

Hi! I’m at workk brwsing your blog from myy nnew
iphone 4! Just wanted too say I lolve reading your blkg and lolok forward tto all your
posts! Carry onn the fantastc work!

Thank you, Shirley, for your kind words. I do have a few questions for you, though. First, does your boss know that your browsing blog posts instead of doing whatever it is you’re being paid to do? Second, what is your job? I hope it’s not as a copy editor or a proofreader. Finally, your “nnew iPhone 4”? Those were introduced in 2010, twelve years ago. Do you have access to a time machine in order to have a new iPhone 4?

Anyway, have you read some catchy spam comments that you’d like to share with us? If so, put them in the comments or create your own post and tag it #FSCW.

    Shirley can’t spell, she doesn’t seem to be a diligent worker, but that time machine makes her a great catch.

    I swear the same incoherent person is writing ALL these messages. Mine look just like yours!

      I’m sure “Shirley” spammed many bloggers!

        It’s the repetition of the same weird misspellings that makes me think they are all from the same bot.

    OK, I just went and browsed a hundred or so and found this one:
    On my post titled, “A2Z 2021 Jethro Tull Songs Day 26 — CraZed Institution, from Too Old to Rock ‘n’ Roll, Too Young to Die” Eddy commented:

    In reality, nearly all questions are even more advanced than a common typical observer may perhaps decide on, influenced by their position. I’m not declaring that I happen to be an expert on this particular idea at-hand, and so I suppose it’s for different blog subscribers to consider. I am certainly not…

      Well, at least Eddy knows how to spell! And for a spammer, he’s reasonably articulate. 🤣

    It never ceases to amaze me that these spammers and scammers cannot even spell the simple words!
