Some Spam From My Comment Box

Since I posted the book review of Godless Morality by Richard Holloway, I’ve received a shedload of spam on that one post. Normal spam rate was about 2-3 per day but since then it has climbed to 10 per day (all of them are blocked by the way and all first posts must be approved by me so this crap will never get through even on the very rare occasions that Akismet fails to spot it).

This post can’t have been continually chosen at random, can it? Does the subject matter make such posts much more ripe for spamming? I’m genuinely interested to know if anybody has an answer about this. Anyway, just for fun here are the ten that I received for 28th May…

I am always looking online for posts that can facilitate me. Thank you!

I needed to post you one little note so as to thank you so much the moment again on your spectacular information you’ve discussed here. It is so seriously open-handed with people like you to convey openly all many people could have made available for an e-book to help make some money for themselves, chiefly since you could possibly have done it in case you desired. Those principles in addition worked to become good way to fully grasp that the rest have the identical dreams just like mine to figure out good deal more with respect to this condition. I’m sure there are many more pleasant instances up front for individuals who examine your blog.

Sheesh, you managed to get all of that from a book review? But please, try a better translator next time.

  1. Thanks for sharing those spam examples. I have another blog and I am facing the exact same problem. Out of all my posts, it is just one particular post that these spammers constantly target. I don’t understand… And I have received a few comments which are exactly the same as you have mentioned above.

    1. I really don’t know why they bother. Akismet have picked up all but one and most bloggers have the default set to “first comment will be moderated”. They can never prosper with such basic security settings.

      I am thanking you much for the helpfulness of this blogging post example. You have my continual gratitudes for your insights! Surely I will bookmark this post much and returnings will be many so long as this work good is kept up to the best of your intentions! 😉

    1. You’re probably right on that but I always imagine it is somebody in Zimbabwe or India blanket spamming hundreds of websites, like those lottery scams
