I’ve been getting a lot more spam comments on this blog. It’s frustrating enough that I haven’t been dedicating the time to writing new posts, but the time I do dedicate to my blog has been spent deleting hundreds of messages at a time.
I’ve found some interesting spam messages. Today I learned about someone supposedly trying to propose to his girlfriend by having everyone forward his proposal. The idea is that it will eventually get forwarded to his girlfriend. Cute.
Otherwise, I get spam about drugs, mortgages, and porn. Oh, and the spam that doesn’t seem to have a purpose other than to give the McLeod Brothers material for their Spamland videos.
I sometimes wonder if I couldn’t do a better job of spamming people. There has to be a better way to get past spam filters than making your message so diluted that no one knows why you’re trying to contact them. Yeah, spamming is easier than actually doing the work to cultivate a relationship with your customers, but how fulfilling can it possibly be?
