Spammers are becoming more sneaky in their approach. For example, I got this comment from someone who seems to be selling jewelry: “I had been wondering if your web host is OK? Not that I’m complaining, but slow loading instances times will often affect your placement in google and could damage your high-quality score if advertising and marketing with Adwords.”
How very kind of you to worry about me and my website. I can only hope that the host prevents you from getting to it at all in the future. You’re welcome.
And this, which not only spams, it’s intended to send the site owner on a wild goose chase: “When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Appreciate it!” To which I say, “How’s it feel, you douchenozzle? You’re welcome.” Interestingly enough I got the exact same comment from two entirely different people. What are the odds?
And this one: “This web page does not show up appropriately on my i phone – you may want to try and repair that” Dude, if you’re using your iPhone to spam me, you’re working WAY harder than you need to. You’re welcome.
If they ever actually read this blog they’d know that they’re a constant source of amusement. Sans the links to whatever they’re selling, of course.
Off to empty the spam. Have a good one. You’re welcome.
