Spam Comment of the Week — Week 9 2023

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 featured spam comment was from Tara Laffoon, whose comment made on a post I wrote in response to one of Dr. Tanya’s Blogging Insights prompts.

hello there and thank you for your information – I’ve certainly picked up something new from right here. I did however expertise some technical issues using this site, since I experienced to reload the site a lot of times previous to I could get it to load correctly. I had been wondering if your hosting is OK? Not that I am complaining, but sluggish loading instances times will often affect your placement in google and can damage your high quality score if ads and marketing with Adwords. Anyway I’m adding this RSS to my email and could look out for much more of your respective intriguing content. Make sure you update this again soon..

Tara, I’m sorry about the technical issues you’ve been having on my site and that you had to reload it a lot of times. I’m not sure if my “hosting is OK.” My blog is hosted at WordPress, and WordPress can be buggy. I’ll immediately reach out to the Happiness Engineers and let them know about the “sluggish loading instances.” Thank you for this heads up and I’m sorry you’ve had issues reading my respective intriguing content.

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.

    I haven’t been getting much spam, but after doing some Daily Prompts I am getting a slew of random followers, either with no blogs or just one post up. I let them stay, but it’s really pointless as I know they aren’t going to comment…

    I actually have a contribution for you this week. Most of the ones I get are SO standard as to not be worth displaying, but this one was different. Stupid, but different.
