Thanks to the powerful widget/gizmo/software thingy that is Akismet, all the comments sent to this blog are screened for their level of spamminess (if that’s not a technical term already, I’m sure it will be very soon). Efficient though it is, I often get the feeling I’m missing out on some insightful pearl of wisdom or literary gem nestling in the pink lump of fat and pork. So a short while ago, I decided to hoard a little spam and sift through it. What follows are the best examples of quality luncheon meat I’ve received over the last few months.

I feel a Ferrero Rocher moment coming on…

Fair enough, but how’s my grammar?
“undoubtedly like your internet web site but you want to check the spelling on several of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling difficulties and I locate it really troublesome to tell the truth nevertheless I will undoubtedly come back once more.”

Top tips from the market
“Buying pennies today just to trade them in tomorrow is just brilliant. Any time you have a chance to tripe your money, you have to take it!”
So very, very true
“I was just seeking this information for a while. After six hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your web site. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that don’t rank this type of informative sites in top of the list. Generally the top websites are full of garbage.”

Ha ! Brilliant post, Eva. Hate to break it to you, but some of these guys may not be ‘exclusive’ and sound familiar from my own WordPress junkbox. Isn’t it strange how this kind of spamming only seems to attract users of English as a second, or possibly third or fourth, language? Someone should set up a website to teach them how to suck up to us in a syntactically acceptable fashion…..
Hey – if they’re busy spamming our comments boxes then maybe they will have less time to phish for bank login details!
