The Comical Comment Spammer

Regular readers are familiar with my articles on comment spam and how, in some instances, it can be dangerous. The last time we discussed this was in Norton DNS Can Save Your Butt!

It’s really a no-brainer to reject a spam comment that looks like this –

Get free laptop, this is not scam! visit: [url=]http://……………………[/url]

But, despite the fact that the following is a spam comment, I had to laugh. I’ll give this spammer points for creativity. Now, his creativity, coupled with ethics and a little bit of common sense, (if he had any), might convince him to find another line of work!

HELP! I’m currently being held prisoner by the Russian mafia url=http://www…………………………[/url] ……….……. and being forced to post spam comments on blogs and forum! If you don’t approve this they will kill me [url=http://www.male-sexual-styles………………………………….. They’re coming back now. xyzrxyz [url=http://pills.buypenisenlargement………………………………….. Please send help!

While this spam comment is absurdly comical, I have no doubt whatsoever, that someone, somewhere, will take this as a serious comment and allow it. Bloggers, just like computer users, aren’t immune to naiveté.
