Flatter Spam, That’s So Sweet!

Everyone is used to the concept of spam. Those annoying emails that worm their way into your inbox, trying to convince you to invest money, buy pills, or join a special VIP gaming site. One of the other forms of spam comes to websites through the comments section on their blog. Traditionally these would be spam comments that would contain a link to an unsafe website. But lately there has been a new form of comment spam called “flatter spam”. In these, sentences are put together using flattering terms, in hopes that the use of positive words will help them make their way through any spam filters. Since they are created by a spambot, they are usually easy to detect because the sentence structure is very poor. After my relaunch last week, I received several hilarious spam comments, and I wanted to share the chuckles with you. None of these spam comments contained unsafe links, so I’m not sure why they even wasted their time. Plus, I have since installed new spam filtering software, so there won’t likely be any more like these. But let’s enjoy these “gems” for now!

One of the funny parts of these spam comments is that they always seem to make sure at least one word is spelled incorrectly, so the comment seems more “realistic”, like a real human would write it. Like these:

Dasia: “Your aritcle perfectly shows what I needed to know, thanks!”

Tallin: “Good points all aournd. Truly appreciated.”

Vlora: “Extremely hlefpul article, please write more.”

Lucka: “You keep it up now, undresatnd? Really good to know.”

There are the comments that make you wonder about the spambot’s mental health:

Cassie: “And to think I was going to talk to seomone in person about this.”

And others where the spambot is just giving it to you straight, like a good friend would:

Patsy: “No more s***. All posts of this qaluity from now on.”

And last of all the long comment, that provides a full paragraph of advice:

Walawender: “It’s perfect time to make some plans for the longer term and it is time to be happy. I’ve read this post and if I may I wish to counsel you few attention-grabbing issues or tips. Perhaps you can write next articles regarding this article. I want to learn more things about it!”
