From the spam files…
I’ve received a number of spam messages from the same bot/person/site lately, and as a special treat, I thought I’d share some with you.
“Thank you a lot for sharing this with all people you actually recognise what you are talking approximately! Bookmarked. Kindly additionally seek advice from my web site =). We can have a hyperlink alternate agreement between us!”
This comment was ironically made on a post about… spam. But I’m not sure which one of us will benefit the most from the hyperlink agreement.
“I precisely needed to thank you so much once again. I do not know the things that I could possibly have taken care of without these concepts documented by you over such a topic. It was actually a real distressing dilemma in my position, nevertheless viewing this specialised technique you processed the issue took me to cry over contentment. I am grateful for your information and thus believe you recognize what a powerful job you’re getting into training the mediocre ones through your website. Most likely you’ve never come across all of us.”
This one touched me, to know I’m making an impact on the mediocre ones. I hope his tears brought catharsis.
This story warmed the cockles of my heart:
“Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!”
Anyone else get them some good spam lately?
Update. Today, I received a spam on this very post:
“The modern world is full of forced advertising. There’s only so much time per eyeball to get your message across that you have to use a little guile and charm. People forgive much if you’re a skilled advertiser, but generally the profession of advertising is run by amateurs. They have no social POWER *clenched fist* Before you can get others to believe in you, you must first believe in yourself“
I mean, you’ve got to admit, there is a little charm here.
