Dumb Spam Comments.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 7:03 pm

Youse guys who stop by here and who don’t maintain a blog may not be aware of the constant battle we bloggers wage with comment spammers. Fortunately, blogging software catches most of the comment spam, but when the software can’t figure out whether a particular comment is real or spam, it relegates it to a “moderation queue,” which allows us to check it out and decide whether it will ever see the light of day.

Many of the spam comments are screamingly obvious in that they are from a domain in Russia, and/or they will contain three thousand words of gibberish and thirty links. Other spammers, thinking they are very clever, try to disguise their comments as the real item. The former are easy, and the latter often crack me up with their sheer douchebaggery.

Yesterday I got this comment to a very, very old post:

I can see the logic in your argument but I think you’ve painted your strokes

Yo, thanks, Asswipe, but the last time I checked my strokes remain unpainted.

Update: Just got another gem. This one was a comment to a post about Bacon Vodka.

Additional Detail – last time I had problems,it just turned power saver regime,and it didnt shut down upon electricity dissapearal

“Electricity dissapearal” Hilarious.


  1. You know I seem to remember I had “Electricity dissapearal” once while I was in Viet Nam, but got me a set of jumper cables and a deuce and a half, presto no more “Electricity dissapearal”. It did sting a bit though.

  2. “I can see the logic in your argument but I think you’ve painted your strokes”

    I swear that’s Kanye West. Pretty obvious.

  3. One technique I’ve seen two or three times now: quote an entire previous comment, and then tack on something like “Forgot to mention: great blog!”

    My spam trap catches these with disgusting ease.

  4. Well, there’s your problem: electricity disappearal caused your strokes to be painted badly.

  5. Those may have been legit comments left by your reader, Kim Jong Il (or his brother, Menta Lee Il).
