Midget Lesbian Porn, Trannies With Knives, and Other Assorted Spam Comments

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.   Smile

By its very nature, comment spam is a pain in the ass – 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.

The following comment on Close Security Holes In Windows With Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer,  from a Chinese spammer (juangonzaloangel), caused one of those “coffee up my nose” moments. I’ve deleted the web links hidden in the comment.

With Online Translators, Read Tech Thoughts in Hebrew, French, Polish……

There’s good reason why the Internet is called, the “world wide web”. It certainly is that. Yes, I know, the Internet, and the world wide web, are not necessarily one and the same. But that’s a purely technical difference, rather than a true functional difference.

English is the primary language used on the Internet, but it may surprise you that it holds this position by only a small margin, as the following graphic indicates. It’s inevitable, that as a percentage, English will lose this prime position.

English 1

I read scores of Blogs, visit numerous tech web sites, and general purpose sites every day (well, every evening), and it never fails to amaze me, how North American centric (including spelling), these sites tend to be.

There’s a disconnect between the reality of who actually makes up the Internet market place (by geographical location and language), and the North American centric focus of many web sites. If you were guided by these sites, you’d be forgiven if you believed that most Internet users were North American, and spoke English

But the following graphic, courtesy of Internet World Stats, certainly proves otherwise.
