Let me take a moment to discuss each comment.

1. Good post. I’m facing some of these issues as well…

The spam comment above was in response to my blog post How the CDC Can Help You Survive Your Zombie Wedding. I’m intrigued that someone may have faced some of the issues outlined in that particular blog post.

2. certainly like your web site however you have to take a look at the spelling on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it very bothersome to inform the truth nevertheless I’ll definitely come back again.

I find it bothersome to follow sentences without capitalization and lack of proper punctuation. Zing! Take that Mr. car quote insurances.

3. I’m not typing out the whole quote on this one. I just wanted to point out one piece of the comment.

You managed to hit the nail upon the top…

Spam Comment of the Week: December 22

Here is another fun spam comment.  While the comment makes a discernible point, the topic has nothing to do with the blog post. Also, the comment only raises more questions.

death metal

Good post nevertheless We have a concern : death metal is certainly not strictly speaking heavy metal when you look at artists love immortal, Sewer and also Darkthrone it is very similar to rock-and-roll excellent

Huh? I have a few questions/ concerns regarding your comment dear spammer.

1. Who exactly is “we”?

2. Please learn to use punctuation.

3. From my recollections of heavy metal, is not death metal a sub-genre of heavy metal? If so, this factoid would negate your statement.

5. How is this relevant to the post Spotlight Nominations?

Crazy spammers.

Mmmm….SPAM!

Occasionally the Akismet widget in WordPress leaves me spam comments to decide if they really are spam.  In the year that I’ve had this blog, all but 2 comments were legitimate.  Otherwise, the “maybe” comments left for me to review are genuine spam.

I used to delete these right away but now I hang onto them so I can openly mock them on my blog.  I haven’t done one of these since April, so I figured it’s time to make fun of some more spam. Is this childish behavior? Perhaps. But I don’t care as it provides much entertainment for me.  Continue reading

WordPress Likes to Mock Me

I only realized recently that you can “Like” your own posts on WordPress.  I found this out when I was replying back to a comment and hit “Like” by accident.  No big deal, except that WordPress will mock you Carly Simon style for doing this.

  Come on WP!  If I don’t like myself, how can I expect others to like me?
