There’s not much that’s funny about comment spam. Comment spam has the potential to be dangerous – if it’s allowed to be blindly posted. I’ve written a number of articles dealing with the hows/whys of comment spam in the past, so I won’t belabor the point. If you wish you can checkout – Comment Spam Is Dangerous BS!
Over and above the danger it may pose to Internet travellers, by its very nature, comment spam is a pain in the patootie for bloggers who have to deal with it. Here on this site – every morning I’m forced to deal with upwards of 300+ pieces of comment spam. This morning for example – 358. These numbers do not include the 200 or more spam comments, that will arrive throughout the day.
Not a big problem you might think – just hit “delete all spam.” Done – over with – on to the next thing. Except, the downside to the quick erase method is; some genuine comments that may have a link/attachment (which will trigger the spam filter), get lost in the flush.
Recently, for example, a reader made the point that I had not posted his previous comment and questioned, if I intended to handle his current comment in the same way. Since I do not filter genuine comments, I could only assume that this reader’s prior comment had fallen victim to the “flush it down the toilet” method. An apology, of course, was in order. So, a pain in the patootie? You bet.
Even so, hard as it is to imagine – there is a bit of a silver lining to comment spam. Sure, I had to dig deep to find it – but, I have to admit – there are those rare moments when I get my morning coffee up my nose, when the unintentional humor of a spam comment catches me unaware.
Now, I don’t mean any disrespect to those who consider Midget Lesbian Porn to be the height of eroticism …………………….. (no, I better not write what I really want to say). But, the following brought tears to my eyes – tears of laughter, that is.

Travelling to the site – if you’re running WOT – would pop up the following warning. Just a quick question for WOT though – why would “Child safety” be unrated?
But lets move on to the following. Both of these put a cramp in my sense of how to comment, in this post, gracefully. So, I’ll just say – WHAT?

But the best, the spam comments that leave me in stitches, are the Google Translate fails. One would think, that if a spammer went to all the trouble of writing a complex spam comment, he’d a least get it right. Here’s a few recent examples.
