Blogging Lessons: Lesson 3
Enjoy the Spam
This is a fairly short blog, but also a fun one. This is merely a reminder to all of you out there to take the time to enjoy some of the spam comments you get on your blog. No, really! I know if you have a kickass spam filter like Akismet doing its job, then you will never be forced to really even SEE the spam comments your blog gets. But, seriously, spam can be such fun. I even read my spam emails from time to time for the same reason. There’s something about them that always gives me a chuckle.
Here, then, are some of my recent spam comments caught in the ol’ filter. And, of course, my earnest replies JUST IN CASE these aren’t spam, and are instead actual
cries for help serious comments.

Message: of course like your web-site but you have to check the spelling on
several of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I to find
it very troublesome to inform the reality then again I will
definitely come again again.
My Reply: I *too find spelling issues very troublesome. See what I did there? You seem to REALLY enjoy the words “several” and “again.” Is that because you can spell them correctly, or because your computer has an echo? Whatever the case, you blew my mind with the phrase “to inform the reality.” That is… wow… SO deep. I really want to inform the reality. I want to inform several realities again again.

It’s a blast. Check out your spam filters often. Who knows, sometimes a best friend’s comments can land in there, so it’s always worthwhile to look just to rescue them from the void. If you enjoyed this post, you can see me answering more spam comments HERE as well as answering some spam emails HERE and HERE (that last one is the infamous Jambalaya Dingletwat post). They’re all such rattling good fun!
