Spam Comment of the Week — Week 11 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 I have three interesting spam comments to feature. This first one was from Pokoj13071, who was kind enough to give my blog a second chance after finding it too boring. But I have apparently redeemed myself lately.

I have not checked in here for some time as I thought it was getting boring, but the last few posts are great quality so I guess I will add you back to my everyday bloglist. You deserve it my friend 🙂

This next spam comment was from Fasano, who apparently is a long lost family member of mine. Hopefully I can persuade this previously unknown family member to not peer any more of my posts.

Hello my family member! I wish to say that this post is awesome, nice written and include approximately all significant infos. I would like to peer more posts like this.

This last one is from someone named Ward, in response to one of my Cellpic Sunday posts, wrote:

My wife and i have been really thrilled when Jordan could deal with his homework using the precious recommendations he came across from your own blog. It’s not at all simplistic just to happen to be offering tricks that many others might have been selling. We really see we have got you to give thanks to for this. The most important explanations you’ve made, the simple site navigation, the relationships you can give support to instill – it’s all great, and it’s aiding our son in addition to our family reason why this content is fun, which is tremendously important. Thanks for all the pieces!

I am thrilled that Ward’s son, Jordan, was able to be helped with his homework by seeing a photo of my dog at the beach. You’re welcome for all the pieces, Ward.

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.

    One time I had a private conversation about the sale of items, not entirely sure it was legal. It was interesting. I reported it to WordPress and that was that. Did my walk and stretches today. It is a chilly 50 in Florida!

    90% of mine are about my book, and the rest of linked to OTHER spam messages because these people don’t give up without a fight.

    Well done Fandango, you are a shining light for so many in this world that they want to come back and see what you have to offer, even long lost family who wish to peer more posts as well as helping students who struggle with photos of dogs 😂😂

    Great post! I find it interesting that you highlight spam comments each week. How do you determine which comments to feature and has it ever led to any interesting interactions with the spammers themselves? That would be an interesting thing to know.

      Your comment ended up in my spam file and you may actually be a spammer, or a chatbot using AI to generate a comment that does not appear to be spam, but actually is. Or maybe you are legit.

      The spam comments I choose to feature are typically ones that have either been generated by chatbots or by real people in spammer farms where English is not their primary language and the attempts to translate whatever their native tongue into English is both pathetic and hilarious.

      None of my spam of the week posts have ever led to interactions with the spammer. If you respond to my reply to your comment, Dante, you will be the first.
