Sir Spamalot's Comments

I am a wonderful blogger – at least if you believe some of the spam comments I get. I like to think they are from the same person - a very strange and disturbed surfer called Sir Spamalot.

In my early blogging days, I fell for the crap in these bogus comments and actually (and rather stupidly) published some.

I then noticed that the wording was a bit strange and the "links" they sent under the guise of “Here’s my blog” were very dodgy indeed.

I thought, for a laugh, I would share some recent spam comments that didn’t make it to my blog.

You could certainly see your expertise within the work you write. The arena hopes for more passionate writers such as you who aren't afraid to mention how they believe. Always follow your heart.

So I’m a passionate and expert writer and like to say what I believe. My ego is swelling.

Once we consider the term your message really like, with regards to a close romance with a further, yet to be a sensing that's engendered once you have miltchmonkey a better relationship with yourself very * or even just as the sense of increased oneness household as well as human race ( space ) therefore it gets much more really clear that every one anyone wants in your life will be really like. 

Random use of a word that sounds fabulous – miltchmonkey – what a word!

Now I am going away to do my breakfast, afterward having my breakfast coming yet again to read further news.

Well thanks for sharing that. I hope you enjoy you breakfast, and be sure that, as a news blog, I will satisfy your need for more. Now then, let's invent a story about the Queen...

Asking queѕtions аre truly fastidіous thing іf уou are not understanding аnything fully,eхceρt this poѕt prеѕents niсe undеrstanԁing yеt.

I have a question. What on Earth are you talking about?

I like the helpful information you provide in your articles.I will bookmark your weblog and check again here regularly. I'm quite sure I will learn many new stuff right here! Best of luck for the next!

Wow – I didn’t for one second ever think that the inane garbage that poured forth from my brain onto this blog was in any way helpful information. My God – I must be a genius.

Are you looking to have a video chat with your relatives overseas or out of state.
If you will be unable to attend the live chat, you can post your questions for Patricia in the comment area below. Overconfident men and women are insecure and are putting up a show of fake self-confidence to mask their internal flaws.

Thanks Patricia. I’m glad you liked my blog post telling you how I am a slave to my cats and I can see that your comment is wholly relevant to that. Are you telling me that my overconfident cats are really insecure and faking their self-confidence to mask their internal flaws? I’ll be sure to mention that to Liquorice when she next tries to rip the flesh from my face.

I've read some excellent stuff here. Certainly price bookmarking for revisiting. I wonder how so much attempt you set to make the sort of fantastic informative site.

I don’t charge for bookmarking. Basically all I do is write bilge – I really didn’t know it was informative.

Whoa! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It's on a totally different subject but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Wonderful choice of colors!

Why thank you. I stole it from you, you know.

I am frequently to blogging and I seriously appreciate your content. The post has definitely peaks my interest. I am going to bookmark your web-site and maintain checking for new facts.

If you think I write facts then you should seriously consider therapy.

It’s hard to find knowledgeable people on this topic, but you sound like you know what you’re talking about! Thanks. 

I am an expert on the weird and wonderful world of the Plastic Mancunian. Oh – and I checked your website - thanks for telling me about your sexual problems. I would recommend that you pop along to a clinic and speak to a specialist.

I have an endless supply of similar comments, plus many who seem to be aware that I am 50 yet think that anyone of my age and older needs to eat Viagara by the bucketload. If I followed their advice I think none of my trousers would fit and I would be afraid to leave the house.

I appreciate genuine comments and will always reply – but not to those sent by Sir Spamalot (who uses the name Anonymous)

Do you get this problem?

Er – the spam comments, I mean, not the Viagara…

I feel vaguely jealous that my blog isn't popular enough to attract spam...

Pandora Behr said...

I'm glad I'm not the only one who hates them. I just delete them as soon as they arrive.

Completely pointless.

'Now I am going away to do my breakfast, afterward having my breakfast coming yet again to read further news.' It sounds to me as if breakfast is coming back up. I do not want to hear about regurgitation in my comments (unless it is relevant of course).
Your spam is mostly more entertainly than mine which tends to offer me medication for an organ I do not own or, alternatively a velvet lined substitute for one I do. Eeeeuw.

MedicatedMoo said...

I most certainly do!

Then again, I still yearn to be called a 'miltchmonkey'. One day, my time will come.

I don't think there is a single blogger who DOESN'T get spam comments. I like the name Sir Spamalot, that's good. Some of the comments are funny, but after getting the same ones for weeks at a time on different posts, I'm sick of them.

Plastic Mancunian said...

Hi Pand,

I don't hate all of them - some are quite funny.




Plastic Mancunian said...

Hi Big D,

You'll get them soon enough. I don't think its anything to do with popularity.




Plastic Mancunian said...

Hi EC,

Noever thought of it like that but you are right. There are loads of awful ones - and extremely dodgy ones that I wouldn't want to reproduce here.




Plastic Mancunian said...

Bonjour Kath,

I know - what a fabulous word it is.

I'll bet you can't wait.




Plastic Mancunian said...

Hi River,

As you say, some of them come back word for word. Your recent similar post on the subject had some very familiar spammies (that's a good word to call them, don't you think?).




Mind Of Mine said...

I get this all the time, I wonder have you noticed that because of the sheer number, some of them get by the Blogger spam detectors. It's getting quite annoying.

Plastic Mancunian said...

Hi MoM,

It can be genuinely irritating and it does seem to be getting worse.




Nomad said...

Oh I have fallen for that gimmick too. Some of these are so cleverly written that upon first glance you'd swear they were genuinely complimenting your blog. I also stopped adding those phony awards that mean nothing.

Just to offer a different view, spam hurts bloggers in another way. I write a political blog and I work nearly every day researching the material from a multitude of sources. It's a non-profit site, I should add. but I will NOT link to my site on this comment, in case you're wondering.:)

Often I come upon another more popular political news website which has a post on something I have researched in the past. Perhaps there is an important detail that the other writer has not caught or needs more explanation, whatever. So occasionally I leave a comment and sometimes I also leave a link to one of my own past posts.

Apparently this is a big fat no-no. I have actually been banned from sites for "spamming" even though every link is related to a previous comment or to the original article.
When I asked one moderator how he/she defined this as spamming, they simply said,"It's against our rules. What if everybody did this?"
(Ironically I was recently told this by a site that produced none of its own content but lifts a paragraph and adds a link to other sites. That's it.)

The effect is that, given the SEO rules, every larger site can easily overshadow any blogger, despite the value (or accuracy) of the content. Eventually this policy drowns out any independent voices and reduces every comment to a mere opinion, and not facts.
So I suppose spamming is more than just a nuisance but has a very corrosive effect of the Net as a whole.
End of rant.

Hi Nomad,

That is a real shame. It would seem obvious to me that your kind of comment is not spam.
