The best one today: “Teenage Girl Obviously Having Affair With Bat.”
I am sorry that I am only writing about spam. I am fighting a cold and trying to get things done and neither of these things are conducive to scintillating blog entries.
But I will make one more spam observation. I get two types: regular ol’ email spam and comment spam on this blog. (Though somewhat less of the latter since I installed Comment Timeout — thanks Jessamyn!)
The email spam is all about making me feel awful about what I lack. (Size, funds, drugs, pretty girls — also, according to several I’ve received lately, a non-stupid face.)
The comment spam is all about making me feel great. You make an excellent point sryan! I saw a post about Tove Jansson on another blog, but I agree with yours more! (Followed, in each case, by a few dozen hideous links.)
I suppose the idea is that you’re less likely to delete comments if they’re complimentary? Like you won’t notice all the links because you’re so gosh-darned thrilled at the spammer’s commendation of your post?
Curious: those of you who get both types of spam, is this split consistent with your experience?
