Go Away Spammers

Does anyone else get these ridiculous anonymous comments on their blog posts?

Sometimes they're unusually complimentary. Sometimes they tell me that I need more evidence to substantiate my argument. But every time I get one they make no sense.

Why? Because they're usually left on a blog post the doesn't warrant such a comment. Like my post about getting 50 free Christmas cards from Shutterfly.

Does someone really think that my argument was weak and I needed more points and research to make that post better? Because all I was doing was sharing a few Christmas card designs so I wouldn't have to pay 50 bucks for Christmas cards this year.

I just checked my spam comment tab. Here's a good one: "Wow! what an idea ! What a concept ! Beautiful .. Amazing".

Really. All that for a Christmas card post?

Does someone really think that such a post is worthy of such ridiculous flattery? Because, once again, the post mainly consisted of a few pictures of Christmas card designs and some ramblings from me about which one I'd pick.

Not exactly my best work.

And I can't tell you how many times I've gotten this comment on some obscure post that has been hidden in my archives: "Nice site, nice and easy on the eyes and great content too."

And these stupid spam comments don't even include a link. What's the even the point if you aren't trying to sell me something or get more traffic for your site?

It's enough to make a girl want to scream.

Leave me alone, Psycho Spammers! Leave me alone!

I've gotten those but usually they include a link. I hate them too and it's a reason I moderate my comments instead of just letting them publish.

Oh I hate spamming...and I hate cleaning up after them! When I first started my blog, I would get some Chinese spammer at least once a week and they would post on EVERY SINGLE POST! Ughhh...I hate having that stuff on there...which is why I now have my comment moderation up and running!

Amanda said...

Wow, that is really pointless. Why even bother if you don't leave a link? The spammers haven't found my blog so far.

Jessica said...

Yes! I get spam like that a lot. usually on really old posts, so I'm glad I decided to enable comment moderation. It really does drive me crazy!!

I got this crazy one that was from boycottamericanwomen or something, it was this huge long comment on why men should find foreign brides because American woman are only going to lie, cheat, and who knows what else. It was so weird! Now what did that have to do with baby calves???

Jenene said...

I think I've had both those comments before. I've also had longer ones that seem like they might be from a real person, because they are more or less on topic, but there is no punctuation, and the spelling and grammar make me twitch.

I used to not have such strict comment moderation, but now I have to. I agree: stupid spam, go away!

I haven't gotten anything quite like that. A couple of "anonymous" comments where someone doesn't like what I said and doesn't have enough guts to leave their contact info while arguing my post, but that's it. No spam really. Weird...people need to get a life and quit spamming!

You should have seen the one I got last week! So offensive and so, so weird!

I've only gotten about a handful in the last 2 years, but I think it's because I have a "captcha" thingy on mine. In other words, for someone to leave a comment, they have to do the security code.
That doesn't keep all out, (like I got one a month or two ago on a post from a year ago... crazy!).
