Cut Yourself a Slice of Spam

Filed under: Blogging,Open Thread,Spam — Psycheout @ 5:31 pm

For every legitimate comment we get here at B4B, we get a hundred or so spam. Along with offers of millions of dollars from Nigeria I get every day, I get sad crapola like this:

Fortunately for you we normally filter this junk out. But I wanted to highlight a typical moron for your enjoyment. If you’re an idiot and want lame crap like this at your own “sait,” be sure to email the a-hole at galoshin@gmail.com.

Hot RicolaBoy, I could sure use a cigarette and some diet pills because I’m ready for some baseball. If only I could find a Hindu forum to discuss these things. Alas, it could never be.

Jerks like this deserve a Columbian necktie. Hopefully a President Brownback would address this human waste. He’s already passed legislation against sick internet perverts. It’s time this kind of scum were wiped out too and flushed down the toilet.

Consider this an open thread. What’s the lamest spam you’ve received?

Update: Much like Depeche Mode, I Just Can’t Get Enough. Case in point: another weak spammer.

Update 2: Classic moron:

Hello fellows Sirs, I’m very sorry for my post

With tears streaming down his face, Bertafgx linked to dozens of hardcore porn sites. What a jerk.

  2. For spammy whammy, Bad Behavior works best, backed up by Spam Karma 2 with Akismet plugin. Works better than anything else we have had. Bad Behavior allows you to run SK2 with relaxed stringency so it doesn’t hammer all your usual commenters.

  3. Thanks, Pinko. Thankfully WordPress comes with Akismet already up and running. Still, spam should be canned. Permanently. And the key should be thrown away.

  4. Akismet can’t do the job by itself. I didn’t notice before that you are hosted by WP, so I guess that is your only option. Akismet is pretty good, but if you every have you own WP site, you’ll know that you need stronger more powerful spammy whammy.

    Once your site becomes popular with the surge of Brownback love, the spams will increase. We got 10K the week before I installed Bad Behavior. 10,000 spams! I do not need that many diet boner stock tips.

  5. It’s just so frustrating when honest people trying to run an honest, informative site get preyed upon by these disgusting vultures. Some of the things that they post are beyond disgusting.

  6. […] for how that works in practice, well…: Jerks like this deserve a Columbian necktie. Hopefully a President Brownback would address this […]
