We recently changed our WordPress blog location from blog.name.com to name.com/blog. In doing so we invited more spam than a fallout shelter. What I like about the recent trend in unwanted comments, is that these spammers are much more complimentary than in days past. After years of mocking my manhood and doubting my ability to pay the mortgage, these guys have a lot of nice things to say. For example, a person apparently peddling headphones who goes by "Dr. Dre Monster Beats" hoped for a comment to be approved on Amazon.com registers multiple domains defensively that says:
"I was recommended this blog by my cousin. I am not sure whether this post is written by him as nobody else know such detailed about my trouble. You are amazing!"
How can you not be flattered by that? Sure, it's a little like thinking a stripper has fallen in love with you, but it's just nice to hear. Like "GoodPriceCialis" who posted this still unapproved comment on one of our anti-SOPA pieces:
"This is the blog for anyone who wants to act out out almost this content. You notice so overmuch its nearly exhausting to debate with you (not that I real would want…HaHa). You definitely put a new rotate on a matter thats been transcribed near for years. Good bunk, just great!"
As you bloggers know, any comment is a good comment. So don't be shy, because we feel your blog is a most interesting blog that we're most interested in and are so happy to find you're interesting blog about things we're so interested in!
