All posts, Stuff we find

Spam, spam, spam, spam…

Ah, the joys of blogging and all that it entails. Like receiving spam. Luckily there are filters attached to the wheels and cogs of the blogging machine that help deal with it – basically they spoon out the dead flies from the soup, leaving messages from ‘real’ people – like a UK removals firm doing an…er…opinion survey about what it’s like to have moved to Spain and can we mention them on our blog? (No.)

Reading spam can be quite fun. We’ve no idea how the garbage is generated. Today’s selection:

You guys line up alphabetically by height.’

‘The dating stage should be easy. Do you have symptoms of intestinal gas, bloating, and cramping (IBS)?’

‘Thanks so much and I’m taking a look ahead to touch you. Will you please drop me a e-mail?’

‘I like a little mischief, loves a lot of love, laughs at pretty much everything (sometimes at cheap sexy underwear), loses all willpower on gooey brownies, raises my half-full glass with a whole-hearted cheer.’ Continues….

‘You can have a partial denture or even a complete one depending on the conditions of your teeth.’

‘Boy Cuts Knee, Snail Emerges.’

All bloggers wish these vermin would disappear. Hooray for the filters! In the meantime, here’s a film about Bromley.

  1. I love my Spam folders… hours of harmless fun!
    I’ve tons of junk followers, though (the multiply by the day), and I find those annoying.

  3. My spam filters were working well – too well – they were blocking ‘real’ people as well, so I’ve had to take them down until I can isolate the offending IP address – It is most disconcerting when you get a prompt from Chrome asking if you would like your page translated from Japanese! Still only getting about 200 a day………..Grrrr
    Thanks for the Python clip – wonderful!
