Spam

Mostly blog spam just annoys me, but today it tickled me a little.

I’ve been receiving a huge amount of spam from one of those ‘lose 60lbs in just 30 days’ – apparently they sell miracle drugs which will make you very thin, very quickly and without requiring you to diet. All in all it sounds very plausible.

Anyhow their lovely little automated spam bots keep sending little messages like this:

“Wow – great post, I’ve been thinking about this topic a lot recently and have bookmarked it for future reference.”

The idea is (as far as I can tell) to blow sufficient smoke up my ass that I’ll let their comment through.

Anywho – today it tickled me because they submitted the message above to my blog post entitled Pimp My Little Pony – a topic which is front of mind for a lot of people right now, what with the current economic climate and swine flu…

Hopefully they’ll submit the same comment to this post too – this time I might even let it through.
