This blog has been around a few years now, and my spam filter has caught quite a few spam comments. 107,662 spam comments, in fact. Which is way, way more spam comments than actual bonafide comments from actual bonafide people.
A few years back I made a post in response to some spam comments that amused me, but mostly I don’t give spam much thought.
I recently checked to see what was in my spam box, though, and was amused to see another recent trend in spamming: flattery. Many of the comments were very complimentary about the blog, the post, etc.. The sort of comment that can be nice to get. Take this one:
so much good information on here, : D.
Yes, I sometimes do feel like I post good information. But, well, this was on my about page. For that matter, so were all of these¹:
Thanks so much for giving everyone an extraordinarily spectacular possiblity to read critical reviews from this site. It really is very fantastic and jam-packed with a lot of fun for me and my office peers to search the blog at least thrice weekly to read through the fresh items you will have. Of course, I’m so at all times motivated with the special methods you give. Some 3 ideas in this post are indeed the most beneficial we’ve had.
At least thrice weekly!

This one I could almost let pass though. Yes! Me! I’m so cool! I’m original! But what exactly is “this subject?” Oh, right. My about page. And what kind of a first name is buy, anyway?
This is great information. Folks, listen to this guy. He’s very bright and knows what he’s talking about. You can’t go wrong with following people who can walk the walk – like him. Great information, dude. Just the way I like it!
I’m glad Sudie likes my blog. It’s so nice to feel appreciated. On the other hand, it would be nicer if Sudie had bothered to note that I am female. Especially given the fact that Sudie was visiting my about page, where I have a picture of myself. (Of course, in that photo, I have a fish on my head. Maybe Sudie thinks the fish is the blog author…though how the fish could “walk the walk” is unclear to me.)
This is such a wonderful source that you’ll be supplying and you provide it away for free of charge. I like visiting internet websites which understand the value of giving a excellent resource for totally free.
Thanks! I take pride in having an internet website which supplies wonderful source for totally free. If there’s one thing I do, it’s provide it away!
An impressive share, I just given this onto a colleague who was doing a little analysis on this. And he in fact bought me breakfast because I found it for him.. smile.

I can’t help but wonder what sort of analysis this person’s colleague was doing on “this.” “This,” again, being my about page. Clearly, though, I have underestimated the value of the information on that page. When will someone buy me breakfast?
This is the right blog for anyone who wants to find out about this subject.

I couldn’t agree more. This is absolutely the right blog for anyone who wants to find out about alejna. It is a key resource for those engaged in alejna studies, and is widely considered essential reading for anyone attempting to undertake any sort of thorough alejna analysis.
¹ I decided to cite the names given for the spam comments. I wouldn’t want to be accused of stealing credit for this phenomenal writing. Of course, I also wouldn’t want to provide links for them. Also, I will not share with you the details of exceedingly dull comments left by individuals who elected to be known as qgnxwlnpkg and Bzcsmtmq, even though I applaud them for their originality in choosing names.
