Last night while deciding if I was going to finish one of the 20 or so articles I have started, or if I was going to go the simple route and post a video/article from elsewhere and just leave a simple comment, I checked my spam que to make sure no real comments were caught (it happens rarely, but often enough I like to check), I happened to notice the first few lines of one spam comment and it struck me as really odd…
Now typically I don’t really comprehend what the spam comments say, I can kinda of tell by the format of them that they are spam, and I just delete without really looking at them. But somehow I managed ot catch enough of this one that I did a double take.
You wrote that you looking pictures of kidney stones in dogs
Here you have all what I found: pictures of kidney stones in dogs
Now in the original message the text in bold was a link, but as I am unwilling to allow spam to pay off, I have removed the link, but if that is your type of thing, I’m sure google can help you out you sick, sick, sick, freak… 🙂
Now what struck me as particularly odd about this spam is not that it had nothing to do with the article it was attempting to be posted as a comment to, or even that it has nothing to do with anything I’ve ever written; but the fact that somebody felt that pictures of kidney stones in dogs would be an incentive for people to click a link. Really? Has that EVER been a google trending term that this spammer felt would get the click they are looking for?
I just don’t know how to put into words just how weird that is to me… And I’m the person who gets excited when I see things like “crack whore” or “duck rape” in the search terms used to find my blog….
I just don’t get it… But in theory some spammer out there felt that this would work to get people to click, and that is just f’d up…
