You are getting sloppy, Anonymous comment spammer.
Yes, everyone. I'm making a post about comment spam. I usually don't go out of my way to do such a thing. Unfortunately, this particular one is starting to get really annoying. I'm not sure of the purpose of their comment, unlike the more obvious ones where they drop numerous links to certain sites (the newest ones concern shoes).
But this one...
It's an innocent comment. They are not dropping links. They are not trying to intice you with a fake profile to do a "work from home" scam. In truth, this has to be one of the most laid-back spam messages out there.
But it is spam. I've gotten it for older posts where all I did was pass out a few blog awards. How that helps someone in their assignment is beyond me? At one time I just left the comment there because it was written a hell of a lot better:
Genial post and this mail helped me alot in my college assignement. Thanks you for your information.
Of course, I'm not saying it makes a bit of sense or is spelled correctly.
... and this mail helped me alot in my college assignement. Thanks you...
Yet I kept getting the message, kept seeing the message on other sites I visit, and realized it is spam. I've gone and deleted any trace of it on my blog. And boy, did this person repeat themselves in an annoying fashion.
I know what you are about to say. "Why, Michelle! If it bugs you so much, why don't you just turn off the anonymous comment function?"
One reason: There are legitimate people out there who go incognito and don't do the whole blogger thing yet still leave worthwhile comments. I have one friend who does this. I'm sure there are a lot of other people who do the same, and I'm not going to leave them out of the conversation by taking such an action over one spammer.
Okay, I vented and perhaps gave a bit of helpful information, which my blog title said I would do on occasion despite trying to kick this habit. Have a great weekend everyone!
Update:And just when I thought spam comments couldn't be more annoying. Second place goes to the person who I had to just delete for this post:
"Hello. And goodbye."
I would say that maybe I ticked off Anonymous. However, I've seen this one on other blogs too... as regular spam.
Thanks for reminding me about this one, Anonymous, so I can do an update.
