I had to change my comment settings because for some reason I get a lot of SPAM comments on this blog
Sometimes I like to read them. (And no, not just because I'm wasting time, or procrastinating, or because I like to pretend that they are my many legions of fans who come to my blog to leave me insightful comments about the best place to get penis enlargement or really cheap designer shoes. But who wouldn't want friends like those?)
But today I changed my comments system so that I have to approve comments now. Hopefully this will discourage their willy nilly comments on each and every post in the hopes of meeting their quota for the day. And don't worry, I will approve your comment even if you disagree with me. But first I will prepare a well written and witty retort to said comment, ha ha!
In honor of the passing of my hundreds of comments by visiting Spammers - I give you - my best Spammer friend comments (and these are in no particular order, as my best spamming commenters often had no particular order to what they said).
The "using lots of adverbs" to express "excitement" for my "webpage" comment:
After studying you site.This is in actuality a terrific webpage. I undeniably will undoubtedly revisit. I highly
valued this article.
The concern troll spammer probably had a meeting with other spammers to discuss their concern but at least they got a lot of harvest out of it. You can't ask for more from a blog post.

concern will have a lot of harvest .

Why thank you Louis Vuitton Outlet. Now don't be afraid to show your appreciation in other free-merchandisy kind of ways. Ahem.
The grammatical goodbye to cheap Viagra - comment.

The "wow, Michael Kors Outlet did you major in literature? Probably. I just read a report from the higher education people that undergrads who aren't in STEM majors don't make no money and are generally screwed - but they get to read a lot." --- comment.
To read a book well, one should read it as if one were writing it
The philosophical makes me stop for a moment to wonder if perhaps I am being too hasty in my judgement of spammer commenters -- comment.
pain past is pleasure
From now on I will have to approve any comments to be posted to the blog. Please keep in mind though that it may take a bit and I may have to be a little discerning when it comes to names/ grammar. I'm sorry if you're name is Michael Kors Outlet this might mean your comment slips through the SPAM cracks... I'll try to actually read the comments before approving or not approving.

Hilarious and all too relatable. I found this article searching for ways to stop this from happening on my website - I get some really good ones, too. SO sick of it though!! I made it so I have to approve everything also, but now I get a ton of messages in my email for it. Still a pain in my ass. I did enjoy your post though, it's good to laugh about it!!
I moderate comments on my own blog and get about 100 alerts per day. Most mention Michael Kors or Mizuno golf clubs. Wish Askimet could be told block anything mentioning Michael Kors.It would probably get rid of 80% of my spam. Would love to know whether you found a solution too.
Just like Juliea, I found this blog because I was searching for ways to stop the spam. From the get go I've been moderating each comment, but after a million and one michael kors comments, it starts to get really frustrating. Hope your spam situation has improved!
Your comment will be posted after it is approved.
