When it comes to spam, I don’t get the awesome letters The Bloggess and Mental Poo are lucky enough to receive. As they’re seasoned bloggers, the spammers know to send them their best “A game” letters.
The spammers save their “B game” for bloggers like me. Great.
In a desire to imitate those I love reply in kind to my spammers, for some time now I’ve been tempted to “approve” spammed comments just so I could respond to their clueless remarks for all my readers to see. (Other bloggers will get this. My apologies to those of you who don’t get it. Or blog.)
The only thing that’s stopped me is not wanting to somehow legitimize (as if this blog could legitimize anything) their URL, login ID, or IP address, the many ways the spam blocker software expertly identifies these spammers.
But, lucky for you, I’ve come up with a way around all that.
With some very basic cut and paste sophisticated software skills, I compiled a list of some of the more interesting comments. (My replies are in red.)
Can’t you just feel the love? I know I can.
