I love this new angle in the spam comments war:
hello , you have a very nice site, but Im hired to leave advertising comments on sites, sorry i hate to do it but i have to . If you dont like advertising comments please send me an email with your site address to (redacted) and I will not write on your site. Sorry for inconvenience.
Can you believe it? Now someone has actually hired some nine year old Guatemalan to sit in front of a computer and post comments on the blogs of the world. And this poor child hates to do it. But (s)he has to. The poor thing. Oh no, here comes the guilt factor…(s)he’s just doing her/his job. Must.Send.Email.With.Personal.Information.to.Make.it.Stop.
Because what I need is more shit cloggin up my cyber world, what with confirming the web site AND giving them my email address.
The weirdest thing is that the spam-bot (posing as a helpless humanoid) didn’t even leave me any advertising.
Listen up, if you want me to react to the thought of someone having to do something they hate, the comment should go a little something like this:
hello , you have the most amazing site I have ever had the pleasure to read. I would hate to do anything that might distract from your insightful writing, but I am a nine year old Guatemalan whose parents have recently died. I have been left to fend for myself and my 13 younger siblings. There are only two lucrative fields in my remote village: 1) leaving advertising comments on sites, and 2) fisting monkeys in the porn circus. If you would rather that I don’t bother you again in the future, please send me an email with your site address to idontwannafistmonkeys (at) theporncircus (dot) org, along with $49.95. I truly apologize from the depths of my soul, as do my brothers and sisters, Carmen, Fernando, Lucia, Sofia, Antonio, Rafael, Guadalupe, Rosario, Hector, Brendita, Edmond, Flora, and Bob. Thank you. Come again.
