Spammers Crack Me Up

Thank you Akismet from keeping this stuff from the public.  But, to the spammer…

Is there a difference between “checking constantly” and “checking continuously”?  Or, how about “seeking” and “looking”?

All this checking seems to have been done within one minute of each other.

  1. Thanks, Cailey. Usually, my blog puts people to sleep. I laughed when I went to check spam this morning and saw this. I make sure not to leave the phishing links and emails out of any screen captures.


  2. SPAM can be both hilarious and at times, annoying… saw a figure that 89% of emails sent in 2010 was spam.

    My recent encounter, which like yours, was rather humorous:

    I RTed a friend’s joke :

    Nice… RT @sandtree: RT @_Apoyando Egypt needs a new president. I need a summer job. This could be perfect.

    Within minutes, I got a mention from a user I don’t follow, and who has since been suspended. They wrote:

    Lookin for a summer job. I found out a perfect way to work from home… [followed by crappy link]

    I replied:

    Wow… intelligent spam… guess you didnt get the joke, my dear watson (jeopardy and sherlock holmes pun X 2)

    I’ve RSSed with the hopes that I want get ‘put to sleep’ haha. Thnx for the share 🙂


  3. I don’t doubt you that that spam figure is that high. It’s amazing how we just accept it as a cost of doing business. Thankfully, we have spam filters and Twitter ready to remove these accounts for us.
