My Spam Folder has only recently been cleared out… but not before I made a note of all of the comments to use in a future post! And guess what? This is the said post!

Hermes Birkin started things off with…

Also, love the fan art. I’m tempted to give it a go myself some time once I have a working monitor on “MY” computer again. My monitor died so I’m using my husbands computer and he doesn’t have the same art programs that I do on mine.

I did feel for Hermes Birkin, I really did. The post she left the comment on had nothing to do with art whatsoever, but she may have scanned a few of my other posts before leaving this message about her and her husband’s computer issues. They are very clever these spammers.

Cartier Love had this to say…

Awesome information, thank you very much for simplifying my search for good butter.

Erm. Ah. Yes. I see. I haven’t yet done a post on good butter although anything is possible.

Another Cartier, Cartier Circe this time, was enthusiastic…

Hi, I check your new stuff on a regular basis. Your story-telling style is awesome, keep doing what you’re doing!

I don’t mind comments like this, but the post it was left on was a photo post so it didn’t exactly fit.

Brak Gold said…

Ah, gosh, yours look so perfect! I made regular and ichigo daifuku the other day… They tasted great, but the texture was off, and they were hideous. I mean, really, they were…super ugly. The next day I made dorayaki with the leftover anko and they were…

I hesitantly did a quick search for ‘ichigo daifuku’ and with a sigh of relief discovered it was food:

They actually look quite good as well, being honest. I can only presume they don’t look the same as Brak’s, reading his/her comment.

Cartier Ring (I’m attracting a lot of Cartiers at the moment, aren’t I?) had a pressing question…

Hi! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good gains. If you know of any please share. Appreciate it!

Sorry Car – I can’t help you there. Have you tried doing a web search for it?

Hermes Luck (ooh look – another Hermes) couldn’t quite find the words for their question…

?????? ????. ??????????, ??? ? ?????? ???????? ?? ??????? ? ????????? ??????? ?????? ???? ????? ???????????. ?????????.

My answer, Hermes is __________ ________ ______ _________ _______ _______ _____ ___________ __ ___ ___!

Anony Manus asked…

Good afternoon. Tell me, how in the Yandex browser on the android in the favorites to create a folder? I would be very grateful. Thank you.

Good afternoon, Anony. With the what in the where now? Ah. I see. You have to turn the dial until you see the Luna Setting VIII, and wait for the screen to turn gold. Then, rapidly shake the device to drain all of the water.

Bvlgari Black had a technical suggestion…

Wow, this is amazing, I thought that my laptop was just getting ruined (as I do let my daycare use it often). I never would have thought of the nUM lock key changing the FN keys, maybe I should have considering lots of them are numbers ! Thanks so much…

You’re welcome Bvlgari. Anything to help.

Tesi Casdye had medical matters in mind…

Hi I have recently suffered from sinusitis and otitis media. I got sick on the 21 I was running a fever and all. By the 25th my fever had went away but my hearing was muffled so I went to the doctors he prescribed antibiotics and told me to take Zyrtec…

I hope you’re feeling better now, Tesi.

Mens Mond had a technical question…

sir, i am an engineering student. i want to charge 12V 1.2Ah lead acid battery using a source which produce an output of 20V, and current in the range of 10mA, so can i charge the battery? if i can then provide me with required cicuitary please

Dear Mens, can’t you work this out for yourself? I only use 12V 1.4Ah lead acid batteries.

Lars Peelpaper wanted to know…

Good afternoon. The question interests. I want to paint the car completely. Color xeralik. What water is waiting for me. I’ll paint myself and the first time. Do I need to mum and primed cars. Tell me please what should be the consistency. Thank you in advance.

Dear Lars, I’m very pleased you asked. I have been wanting to share this information for a while now. And using the Galacian term ‘xeralik’, meaning ‘general’, was a masterstroke! Firstly, however, you need to actually decide on a colour. Once you’ve done that, make sure the paint is sticky enough to stick. You don’t want it coming off after all your hard work.

Bvlgari Knockoff (these names are very familiar, aren’t they?) was very complimentary…

I love the website layout ! How did you make it. Its so cool!

Thank you, Bvlgari. It was off the shelf.

And finally, L Diamond had this to say…

?Your Post are gorgeous and useful.Thanks for sharing your good experience with us.You is an amazing artist! ????

Why thank you, L.

But he/she went on…

nice and wonderful tips,i really like this,thank you so much dear for sharing very useful details,keep up dear….

I’m trying to keep up, L, I really am. I have spam to read, and comments to reply to, and blog posts to write, and pictures to create, and photographs to take, and work, and eat, and sleep, and… and… yes. I am keeping up. But thank you for saying so.

And there we have it. The latest round-up of spam that I left to fester in my Spam Folder until it was automatically deleted. In the midst of all that, there were some genuine comments from regular visitors, who I rescued without a quibble. I’m kind like that!

Spam – pointless, but funny… on occasion!

Have you had any fun spam lately?

  1. You may not believe this but I never look at spam????

    1. Most of it isn’t worth looking at, Beverly, but on the odd occasion you can come across a corker!
      It’s worth having a quick glance in your spam folder every now and then, though – sometimes genuine comments end up being marked as spam and they need fishing out!

  2. I can’t believe the variety of spam you get. I think akismet is cheating me out of some fun reads, all it lets through are the spam spam spam spam spam spam spam spam — lovely spam, wonderful spam! – type messages. Grrrr.

    1. It’s been a while since I’ve had spam of this quality, Pendantry, they all seemed to crop up at once.

  3. Now I really want to know what colour “xeralik” is. Maybe after Lars has finished painting himself he’ll send a photo.

    1. He may very well do, Diane… although he may not choose me to send the photo to. These spammers don’t seem to be overly selective, do they?

  4. Your spam is definitely much more interesting than mine. I had one or two similar, but not such a variety! And such delicious pictures too. 🙂

    1. I was surprised by the pictures, Elaine – I was dreading what was going to appear in the browser, but I’m happy with these.
      The spam comments seem to have stopped here for now – but I’m sure they’ll return one day!

  5. So funny, Tom 🙂 These look and sound very familiar. Early on, I was gullible and thought some were actually directed to me! I can’t believe I did that!!! Then I was getting heaps of spam comments on a few posts that made no sense and had no connection to content. I eventually discovered how to close those to comment. I’m a slow learner. I hardly get any now, thank goodness. But I do check the folder most days.

    1. I like making fun of this type of comment, Raili. The boring spam just gets deleted.
      It has been a while since I’ve had a lot to play with, so this lot seemed to have come along at the right time! 😀
      (And some of the comments do seem genuine – so I wouldn’t worry about that too much!)

  6. Hi Tom!

    I keep a careful eye on my email junk folder as you must, getting an email from a friend using my nickname and including a coded link.

    Now Momma Didn’t raise no fool, so I contacted the supposed sender over Facebook IM and she confirmed my suspicions that she had NOT sent me the email!!! 😡

    She’s now changed her passwords and done a virus sweep, but the hacker used her ‘sent’ emails to try and get me to click on the toxic link!!! 😡

    It’s a new wrinkle, but one we should ALL be aware of!!! 😡

    God Bless!

    1. I couldn’t see the point of spam for a long while, Prenin, but as a way of gleaming information they are getting trickier by the day – you have to be really careful!
