The classy spam comes to me

email-297068_640Once upon a time spammers would try to sell me tacky stuff like Viagra or call me webmaster (which I quite liked) only to point out that my SEO (search engine optimisation) wasn’t up to scratch and that I should get in touch for advice blah blah blah or watch a 4-minute tutorial at their website blah blah blah. At other times I’d get reams of utter nonsense. Now, however, spammers are getting more creative and effusive – some of them can even string a sentence or two together. Check out their great reviews of my blog. My replies are in blue.

  • This design is steller! You obviously know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.  Too cool!

Between my wit and my videos I was almost moved to teach you how to spell “stellar”. Apart from that I really loved what you had to say. Too cool!

Thank you! What a bullshitter you are! I’ve got no layout attributes at all. I wouldn’t know how to customize butter on toast, let alone anything technical.

    • I love the gobbledegook ones that are absolute nonsense – the words might be correct but they just don’t fit in a sequence – and hence make interesting reading, like the ravings of a lunatic.
