Pardon….say that again

Like many other bloggers I keep a record of the books I read – I even keep lists here on the blog. See Books Read above. Just occasionally readers will comment on the books, more often on a post I’ve written but I ‘have’ received one or two on the book page itself. Which is surprising but nice just the same.

Until, like recently, when there were loads of them……this sort of them

They’re not the nasty ‘don’t want them on my blog’ ones…..just strange ’english is not my first language’ type and with WordPress’s system of skimming off into another folder what they think is spam, I have the option of ’publish or delete’ (by the way, nothing in there ever does get published)

The fun (if there is fun in checking spam comments) is seeing those recent ones on the book pages…..funny to read – not funny if you click on the links they provide – (which obviously I haven’t….shown you or clicked) So I thought you might like a giggle – just remember these are all on pages containing lists of books I’ve read not postings on the main blog

  1. They are so obviously spammers, lol. Correcting them sounds amusing.
    I treat spam like I do poison ivy, or some of characters I told my daughter not to stare at as we walked down the sidewalk in the city when we lived there – don’t touch, and don’t make eye contact (with my eyes, or my fingers).

  2. To rewrite them means you understand what they actually mean. I quite like ‘Everyone looks fabulous’ but it was probably a comment on a post without photos of people.

  3. Many of the comments are written by those whose native language is NOT English, and they are learning to read and write English by reading and responding to blogs. Many instructors suggest their students look at certain American blogs to get a handle on our language and our customs.

  4. Actually your spammers leave more interesting comments. Mine says things like, “Interesting post.” “You have good information,” “Come to my blog please.”

  5. I don’t want to correct them but I understand why you do 🙂
    This kind of spam doesnn’t bother me but I delete it for the sake of relevance. I’m never sure why some people get so terribly wound up about it
