Ann said I should write a post about this latest comment to my blog. It was posted on my iPad and Education entry but I think it’s spam. What do you think? “Impressive perform on your own send. Hold up using the specatacular work.”
The website that it came from is: free-music-downloads2.tumblr.com Don’t put that website into your browser. It’s spam. But the poetry of the comment is priceless, almost as good as the classic: “All your base are belong to us.”
So why didn’t my spam filter catch this comment as spam? It’s not clear to me since it seems so obvious that it’s spam. How did the authors bypass the spam filter? I have no idea. But I have my blog set up so that I have to moderate any comments from new posters. So I was able to mark this particular comment as spam and not have it actually post as a comment.
I do, however, like “Impressive perform on your own send.” Praise, even nonsensical praise, makes me feel good about myself.
