Do you read spam comments on your blog? You probably should. One reason is that occasionally, a perfectly good comment from a perfectly good fellow blogger ends up in the spam queue. Another reason is that spam can be hilarious, which is great for mood boost, and complimentary, which is great for ego boost.
Here are some of my favourite spam comments, all duly caught by the Akismet filter:
You are so cute.
Why, thanks, I know. My Lena the laptop, at which this spam comment was aimed, is also cute and she also knows it because I tell her every so often.
I don’t know.
Well, neither do I. The good thing is that we both know that we don’t know. The question remains why let other people know that we don’t know?
I’ll take care of it.
Is this a threat? This thread looks like a threat to me. Or it could be a promise, since this comment would have landed on my coffee post, so it might just as well be a promise of coffee. In which case I’m in.
