Dear Spammer, I am not interested in buying Viagra or advertising it for you in my blog comments. | viagra is a commercial produced medicine containing Sildenafil citrate, which is used to treat male erectile dysfunction and pulmonary arterial hypertension. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

If you have a blog, you’ve probably gotten at least one ridiculous spam comment on one of your posts. You know what I’m talking about… those comments that were obviously written by some online Viagra salesperson in Southeast Asia who is sitting at a laptop filtering their spammy comments through Yahoo Babelfish before posting. And what about those comments that have absolutely nothing to do with the post you’ve written? Do these spammers really think we’re this stupid?

Luckily, I use Akismet on my blog, so I don’t have to read too many of those spammy comments. The ones that do occasionally slip through the spam filter are generally pretty funny. Check out this list of the top 7 ridiculous spam comments received on my blog, and you’ll see what I mean: 

  1. My brother suggested I might like this blog. He used to be totally right. This publish truly made my day. You can not consider just how much time I had spent for this info! Thank you!
  2. It’s going to be finish of mine day, but before ending I am reading this great paragraph to improve my experience.

  4. This comment was made on my blog post titled, “I need a new bike”: “I have observed that of all kinds of insurance, medical care insurance is the most debatable because of the issue between the insurance policies company’s need to remain adrift and the buyer’s need to have insurance policy. Insurance companies’ commissions on overall health plans are extremely low, consequently some firms struggle to gain profits. Thanks for the tips you reveal through this web site.” (I especially enjoyed the part where the writer stresses the insurance company’s “need to remain adrift.)

  1. I’m a first time visitor but the title of your post caught my eye. I hate spam and I try not to bother myself with it but while WordPress is deleting it sometimes I’ll read it. I cannot recite it word for word but the one I remember most came from India and the robot stated, I read your post at the urging of my sister. Even though I totally disagree with your post and point of view and despite the fact I think you are an idiot I am now subscribing to your interesting blog. Cheers or something like that.

    The problem with the entire spam is that the comment was posted on a wordless photo.

  2. Yeah, that feeling of “Cool! Someone commented on my blog” quickly dissipates into “What!? Some geek with horrible English spammed me!” Sigh. The highs and lows of blogging…

    • Pretty late, but never late than never!

      Most of my comments seem to be coming the same person (I believe it’s the same person at least).
      It’s always “macey###@gmail.com”, while the ### represents the various different numbers that fill in there.

      A few robots & SEO’s. Should I mark those as spam?

      • Oh yeah, I would definitely mark those as spam. If nothing else, it’s not good to encourage them to keep spamming.

      • Ok, thanks :).
