Oh Really, Mr. Spambot?

I got this spam comment on here the other day, and I deleted it because it pissed me off.

And, there’s probably a way to retrieve deleted comments, but damned if I know how.

This post is not about retrieving deleted comments.

It’s about the inability of any blogger to always be on top of her (or his) game.

So Sir Spambot told me he used to come here and read my posts because I was hilarious and uplifting, and now…not so much.

Oh really?

Well, it’s easy to be a critic when that’s all you do.

Which brings me to my next point.

Was this a spammer, or was this an honest opinion?

Doesn’t matter, I deleted it and promptly got all righteous and stuff about how I am such a “brilliant” writer and how dare anyone question my blogging capabilities.

Then I threw up in my mouth a little.

Then I decided I was at least partially right.  At least the part about the difficulties of writing a blog for entertainment purposes.  The rest?  Yeah, not so much.

But, I am honest…or at least I try to be.

Look, whoever you are…if you are a real person…you may have a point.  I maybe don’t always have that edge.  Maybe I’m not all that interesting, maybe I am boring sometimes, but guess what?  This is my little corner of the worldwide web, and if you don’t like it go somewhere else.

  1. After reviewing your internet page of site, I find this posting to be very informational and also entertaining. But maybe you could shift your focus to dog training!

  2. I am interested in your opinions, and would like to subscribe to your newsletter.

  3. Maybe it was a bot or maybe a real person. Either way, it doesn’t know what it’s talking about. I think you’re at the top of your game–as entertaining as ever, and often very funny!

    Ignore the fool and keep doing your thing.

  4. And I get a spam comment about 3 times a day from something called ‘lista de email’. Today’s comment was different than usual…it said, in part: “please post more, I am to enjoy”

    I think the bots are becoming sentient, kids.

  5. Ignore the Bot…or stupid human. You rock the blogosphere!

  6. Have you ever thought about publishing an e-book or guest authoring on
    other blogs? I have a blog based upon on the same information you discuss and
    would really like to have you share some stories/information.
    I know my subscribers would enjoy your work. If you are even remotely interested,
    feel free to shoot me an e mail.
