Hello, and welcome to my blog.
Like most people, I like receiving feedback – at work, after I’ve cooked a meal for a loved one, when I check my appearance in the mirror – because feedback is useful in helping us develop and grow. Even negative feedback can be useful; if some one gives you horrible feedback like, you know – you can’t sing, your dress sense is awful, it’s against the law to wedgie a vicar, that sort of thing you can still use it to your advantage.
I’m fortunate enough to receive a good quantity of feedback on my blog posts. Thank you to those of you who feel moved enough to comment. I do also receive a large quantity of Spam email which usually just frustrates and annoys me, but recently I received some which was wonderful in it’s absurdity – both because of the interesting way it was written, and the subject of the comment and the blog to which it (allegedly) referred.
I’d like to share with you, some of the gems that have graced my spam filter in recent months, for no other reason than to highlight their ridiculousness. Please note that I have not altered nor corrected any grammatical errors or spelling mistakes. I feel that to do so would somehow mute the voice of the commentator.
In response to my post Glamourous It ‘Ain’t! I received the following comment:
“Yoᥙ rеcogbize what Paѕtor Johansson told us onn Sunday is
that God really likes worshiρ.DadԀу addеd.”
Solid advice from Daddy there (whose daddy?)..although as Sunday has been known for a while as a day of Worship, I’m not sure what effect the good Pastor was hoping for by emphasising that God REALLY likes worship on a Sunday – as if Monday to Saturday, God’s response to worship is “Meh.”
When I wrote the post about my Mum (titled ‘Mum‘), I received a comment from someone called ig sdfsdf.net email@example.com 188.8.131.52. That’s his name; I hope to God he doesn’t work in retail – his name badge will be wider than he is!. His comment was”
“Hello, I desire to subscribe for this web site
to obtain hottest updates, thus where can i do it please assist.”
He wants to subscribe to my website (I think he means blog) to obtain hottest updates – yet he clearly failed to notice the two separate “Follow this blog” buttons / links which appear with every post I write.
But by far my most popular blog post for Spam comments was my Friday Poem about a Chameleon (my first poem – I have written two about chameleons) – Ode to a Liar. I’m not sure what it is about this poem, apart from the exceptional way it was written of course but just some of the weird and…..well, weird spam comments I got were:
“Wіth the intеntion tο acһieve success with freelancing, іt is necessary to ƅe self-disciplined, mοtivated,
and organized. In сase you elect to tаkе the route of freelancing,
you will ԝanjt to have thе abilitry to search and acquire potentiaql
jobs, be very еffective iin schedսling your time, and have good math abiⅼities for
the aaim of billing and taxes.”
“Lee and Lɑrry beloved theіr sixth birtһday party.
Regardⅼess that they were twins, Mommy and Daddy at all
times made sure they every had a particular time. And with their biｒthdaｙs coming in December, Mommy and Daddy
аlsо all the time made sure their birthdays were special although Christmas was рroper aroound the corner. Ƭhe sociual gathering waѕ ѕo enjoyable with a clow and cake and songs aand fantastic
pгesents from their assoociates and grandoarents and uncle and aunts.
It went by sօ fast but earlier than thhey knew it, everybody had gⲟne residence andd it
wɑas time to clean up and get rsady for bed.”
“I know!? Stated Larry. ?I guess he likes angels ɑs a result of he has
them round aⅼl of thee time. Possibly he and
the angеwls play famiⅼy video games like ᴡe doo
sometimes. Peraps they play Monopoly.? This made
Ⅿommy laugh realⅼy hard.”
and finally, bringing us back to the theme of the first spam comment I shared tonight:
“Singing ѡοrship sоngs is nice but that?s not the only approacһ
to worship.? Daddy said, maybe to mke Larгy stop singing.
?There are many wzys to worship.”
I agree with the last one; Larzy should stop singing his worship – he has a terrible voice.
Spam – making blogging fun since idiots were given the chance to comment.
