Why Getting Spam Comments Is Actually a Good Thing

Sometimes getting fake comments is the best.

Mainly because it boosts my ego to see, like, 50 pending comments. Yes, that’s happened before.

Actually, the real reason is way more boring entertaining. You see, spammers have a problem. Not only are they super annoying, they’re super funny. As in, “yes we went to The Academy of Fine Arts and Humor to study how to delight our targeted victims.”

This leads to an inner conflict. One part of me wants to scream, “FLY YOU FOOLS! Leave my blog in peace.”

The other part of me wants to shudder and laugh and cry and congratulate them on their terrible use of the English language and their delightful sense of love for my DLB (Dear Little Blog).

What do the spammers have to say for themselves?

A lot, actually. So much that I wrote a Best Spam Comments post last year. Consider this part two. 😉

A Venture Into the World of Blog Spam Comments

DISCLAIMERS

  • Responses may include potent amounts of snark.
  • All spam comments are left as I found them. Aka turn off your inner editor or prepare to have your eyes bleed and your soul beg for mercy.

SPAMMER SAID

some genuinely choice content on this internet site , saved to my bookmarks .

I SAY

If only the rest of the world agreed. Though I suppose it’s better to be a big fish in a small pond than a big fish in a bigger pond?

SPAMMER SAID

I LOVED this publish. It’s so grown-up and responsible.

I SAY

GUYS LOOK! I know how to adult. At least according to Mario Cousin. That was his name…not even joking. 😮

SPAMMER SAID

This is how lateral wondering provides out alternate cases of a cricket ball which is spherical however with choice colours.

I SAY

Here, call a psychiatrist. The world will thank you.

SPAMMER SAID

Sweet blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News.

Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo

News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there!

Appreciate it

I SAY

That’s a new one. Guess I’m not such a little fish as I thought, if I’m in the prestigious Yahoo News. Do I have any tips? Considering I didn’t even know my DLB had ventured into such a bold spotlight, nope.

SPAMMER SAID

you employ a wonderful weblog here! do you need to cook some invite posts on my small blog?

I SAY

Why thank you. And actually, I prefer to cook food. It’s more…edible.

SPAMMER SAID

You need to be a part of a tournament for one of the highest quality blogs online. I am going to recommend this page!

I SAY

Ooohhhh. Instead of Game of Thrones, we can have Tournament of Blogs. Sign me up!

*cue epic music playing in background* I shall win honor and acclaim for my DLB. Together we shall crush the competition and emerge victorious.

In other news, if you’re going to recommend a page, maybe you need to include a link, or name, or something? I mean, you are a spammer, right? So… #spamfail

SPAMMER SAID

Nice Hopefully allows.

I SAY

I couldn’t agree more.

SPAMMER SAID

Can I say what a relief to discover one who actually knows what theyre preaching about on-line. You certainly understand how to bring a challenge to light making it important. More and more people really need to check out this and understand why side of your story. I cant believe youre less well-known simply because you undoubtedly develop the gift.

I SAY

First off, please use spellcheck or autocorrect or something. Apostrophes are kinda important, even though they don’t get much love.

Second, you’re too kind. No, seriously. TOO KIND.

Third. Yes, I have the gift. It’s a great mystery and constant burden, but I alone can bear it. Thus I muddle through life forgotten and unknown.

**The irony of this comment? It was on my Best Spam Comments post from last year.** 😮

SPAMMER SAID

It’s rare to get an expert in whom you may have some confidence. In the world of today, nobody actually cares about showing others the way in this matter. How lucky I am to have now found a wonderful web site as this. It is really people like you who make a genuine difference nowadays through the ideas they discuss.

I SAY

Awwww, I love making a difference. And I do care about others. Which is why I make sure to delete spam comments.

Like yours. -_-

SPAMMER SAID

the public schools on our district can really give some good education to young kids. they have high standards,.

I SAY

Right then. Duly noted.

SPAMMER SAID

Great I believe you.

I SAY

via GIPHY

It’s about time.

SPAMMER SAID

inka express bus

I SAY

Wow, how did you guess? I’ve literally been wondering about that my whole life. Like, where the heck does the Inka Express Bus come from? Why does it even exist? I think this comment has changed me forever.

    • Haha, well…maybe it was just that funny. 😉

      Also, is there such a thing as laughing *too* hysterically? 😛

      Thanks for reading!

  1. “You need to be a part of a tournament for one of the highest quality blogs online. I am going to recommend this page!” – I think they were saying they are going to recommend your page to one of those tournaments?

    I had a few the other day that I enjoyed.
    1) “Good way of explaining, and good piece of writing to get information concerning my presentation subject matter, which i am going to present in academy.”
    To which I say – you’re doing a presentation on a dystopian world from a book review? There’s so many ways that could go!
    2) “Incredible points. Solid arguments. Keep up the great effort.”
    Why thank you!
    3) “Família é a coisa mais importante para mim.”
    Family is important to me too! We have so much in common! ;D

    • I hope they do! 😉 Gonna have to dust off my lance and oil up my trusty steed…er, segway.

      Haha, I love those super random comments. Honestly, if I had to attend a presentation, hearing about a dystopian world would be pretty cool.

      Isn’t it amusing how encouraging spammers can be? 😛

      Thanks for sharing!
