This ancient post has become extremely popular to anonymous spammers over the past 2 months. They keep posting comments on it and yet they never get published. Blogger's SPAM filter catches them first.

There is much wisdom in what these people write. It would be a shame to let it go to waste (minus the actual SPAM links of course).

For the love of all that's holy, that's 17 comments on this 6+ year old article in less than 2 months. Not one SPAM link was published. What a frickin' waste of energy, time, and resources that is for all involved.

Don't even get me started on how many times we're called even though we're on the Do Not Call list. That has 0.0000% chance of paying off for anyone who tries it, at least in this household. Persistence

It's over, man. Let her go.

It is such glorious insights that have me guarding my lions whenever I have such great occasion to frequent your site. My brain swells to full thought erection, you're content will not be taken for granite.

This should be a regular feature - best fun I've had all day. fred

Hahaha! I'm glad you enjoyed it. It took some effort. There was a lot of copying, pasting, and formatting to do.

I actually don't get bombarded with all that much SPAM. It's really piling up on that one post though. Good grief, lol.

It finally reached the "you've got to be @#$%ing kidding me" stage. ;)

#3 is spam, maybe others too, machinery snuggling up with compliments, woo hoo, who will resist modern voices of the bots?

Stagflationary Mark said...

Brian Hayes,

I should probably have mentioned that all 17 of them left me the same SPAM link. I'm very popular with a Houston Texas public adjusting service (did not click on the links so can't tell you more, lol).

So my guess is that they are either all people or all bots!

And yet, some of the comments seem better written than others. It sure is a mystery/conundrum!
