Apparently, The M3 Blog is a spam magnet. Perhaps, an illustrated example will make this a little clearer.
On 01JAN14, I took a peek at the spam filter to see if something was wiggling which should be set free. As rare as that is (three in six months), I would hate for someone with a pulse to be stuck in no man’s land. What to my wondering eyes did appear?
Yes, 748 spam comments on day one. Ironically, this is not all. (No, the 25,000 from December really is not all that surprising to me any longer.)
We all love the idiotic comments and emails I have gotten over the years. The Friday Follies have their own tab. Want to see just a few of the brain stratchers I have gotten lately?
A picture is worth… spam.
Recently, I have gotten a load of interest in one of my images. No, it is not the beautiful red mermaid. No, it is not even the red demon. Let me show you the comments and see if you can figure out onto which picture they attached.
You must love when a spammer spams you about how to overcome spam, right?
Do you have a spam problem on this blog; I also am a blogger, and I was curious about your situation; we have developed some nice procedures and we are looking to trade methods with others, be sure to shoot me an e-mail if interested.”
Seriously? Did you just send a bot out to tell me you know how to control spam by spamming? Ugh.
There will always be someone in the spam net whose Google Translate was on the blink.
I loved as much as you will receive carried out right here. The sketch is tasteful, your authored subject matter stylish. nonetheless, you command get got an nervousness over that you wish be delivering the following. unwell unquestionably come further formerly again as exactly the same nearly a lot often inside case you shield this increase.”
Can I buy a vowel?
Runner up for the Translate Blooper is this gem:
What a stuff of un-ambiguity and preserveness of valuable know-how about unexpected feelings.”
Newbie spam is constant. That stranger who is so supportive of your blog, which answers all the needs of a friend, leaves comments to confirm their spamminess.
I all the time emailed this website post page to all my contacts, as if like to read it after that my friends will too.”
Wow, this piece of writing is fastidious, my sister is analyzing these things, therefore I am going to convey her.”

Hello there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after checking through some of the post I realized it’s new to me. Anyhow, I’m definitely happy I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back often!”
If you are looking for this, here it is. Bookmark away.
You got that right.
Over the last few years, I have come to appreciate some of the off-topic comments from visitors and friends who know it is just as easy to reach me on M3 as it is in the SIB. This one, well, not so much.
Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!”
All righty then.
Why is this run of the mill spam funny? Can you guess to which picture all of the above (and another 300) were attached?
That is right. All of these spammers are interested in gonorrhea. Perhaps, we could get them a group discount.
