Spam Comment of the Week — Week 18 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’m featuring a comment from Wayne Thomas. He left this comment on my response to the WordPress Daily Writing Prompt asking about our favorite emojis. Wayne, who also seems to want to be called “TheDogGod,” wrote…

We love reading your blog! Your unique perspective and genuine voice are game-changers in the world. Keep sharing, because your words make a difference. Thank you for being who you are!

Thanks – TheDogGod

I’m not sure who the “we” are that Wayne tells me love reading my blog, but I can tell you that Wayne, for whatever reason, sure seemed to be kissing my ass with his comment. But fear not, Wayne, I will continue to make a difference with my words and to be a game changer. You’re welcome, Wayne, aka TheDogGod.

What about you? 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 got a ton of spam comments from Wayne & co last week. They’re Pomeranian puppy sellers. Why the fuck do they think we’ll let them advertise in our comments?

      Great question. Why do spammers think we’ll approve of any of their stupid comments and what do they get out of it.

    😖 Fandango, that guy, Wayne, has been trying his utmost best to spam the living daylights out of my blog. I ended up blocking him; his comments now go automatically to my trash.

    OMG, he’s popping up on my blog all over the place. I have no problem with Pomeranians but object to his advertising so blatantly when he wants to leave his thoughts (an alternative message to the above). I’ve deleted him as a follower, trashed any comments that are getting through and will be blocking him too. Wayne the Pain.

    I’m still rolling in RV repairs and a few who think I should buy a Mercedes. Cheap.

    Wayne’s comment is AI generated according to the IP address in the version I received. But hey, we’re all unique and the bot is grateful that we’re just being us.

      It seems a lot of us must be on that list.

        He probably bought WordPress’s list. They make a lot of money selling our information to other people.
