The Minds of Spammers
I get a fair number of spam comments. It’s been interesting to see different tactics. While quite a few are the usual gibberish (literally; I’m pretty sure they’re written in no language at all), a surprising number appear, at first glance, to be compliments on a particular post. They’re clumsily written, and a second glance often reveals them to be unrelated to the topic at hand. But if you weren’t paying attention, you might let them through. They’re quite calculated.
I do wonder, however, what the goal was with this comment that showed up today, allegedly in regard to my recent post about business communication:
The following time I learn a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I imply, I know it was my choice to learn, however I actually thought youd have one thing fascinating to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you possibly can fix if you werent too busy in search of attention.
All I could think was, “Well, that’s new.”
