Until I began posting on this website, I was unaware that spam mail has advanced to the stage of posting fake appreciative comments on your blog. The following is a typical example:
Greetings. Initial I want to say that I really like your web site, just identified it the past week but I’ve been reading it sometimes since then.
I appear to concur with most of your thoughts and beliefs and this post is no different. totally
Thank you to get a fantastic weblog and I hope you maintain up the very good operate. If you do I will keep on to checked out it.
Use a excellent day.
Great, isn’t it? I was so naïve the first time one of these popped up that I actually believed it and swelled with pride. Can you imagine anything more ridiculous? It’s like being winked at by a hooker and thinking “hey, she likes me!” I believe the point of these fake comments is to trick you into trying to look up the poster, who is actually a website advertising something mildly related to your blog’s contents. The above example led back to a website selling (presumably black market) ‘American Fridge.’ It began “You have probably seen an American fridge on a TV show…”
Anyway, if you are a real person, and you enjoy this blog, please shout out! Remember, real comments are virtual hugs.
Some facts about the meat product known as SPAM:
- SPAM does not stand for “Something Posing as Meat” but is a portmanteau of “Spiced Ham.”
- SPAM is sold at Burger King in Hawaii.
- American GIs introduced SPAM to many world cuisines during the World War II. You can now find SPAM dishes in the Phillipines, Guam, the UK, Japan, South Korea, and China.
- SPAM isn’t all that bad. I once ate the ‘steak’ portion of an MRE (Meal Ready to Eat) and SPAM is a lot better.
