Spam....It's Not Just a Breakfast Meat Anymore...

I really like Spam

I am from Minnesota, you know.  Although Hawaiians love it even more.  (It is even on the menu at some restaurants there.)

My favorite way to eat it is fried.

But, as much as I love Hormel's Spam.

I am talking about Spam comments on my blog.

Even though I started having trouble with the Disqus comments a while back and my friends and family couldn't leave me comments, the spammers, apparently didn't have the same issue.

My most frequently spammed post is Math 911.

I don't know why.  I wonder what wording I used that attracted them.

Most of my spam comments I find funny.

Like this one:

"Attractive section of content.  I just stumbled upon your blog and in accession capital to assert that I get in fact enjoyed account your blog posts.  Anyway I will be subscribing to your feeds and even I achievement you access consistently quickly."

That comment was on my post about Texas! 

Or, how about this one on my Comments post?

"I blog often and genuinely thank you for your content.  The article has really peaked my interest.  I am going to book mark your site and keep checking for new information about once per week."

I am positive that my whining and complaining about my mom not being able to comment on my blog really peaked her interest and good thing she checked back once a week, because there was a lot of new information available on that subject!

Or, how about this one on The One With the Cockroach?

"Youre so cool!  I dont suppose Ive read anything like this before.  So nice to find somebody with original thoughts on this subject.  realy thank you for starting this up. this website is something that is needed on the web.  someone with a little originality.  useful job for bringing something new to the internet!"

I really am cool, but I am not sure if I really have "original" thoughts on finding a dead cockroach in my coffee pot in the morning.

I suppose I could ignore those little things and just go check out their website for Uggs or knock off Louis Vitton handbags though, couldn't I?

As long as they aren't creepy, icky Spam comments, I think I am okay with getting them.  They provide good examples of bad grammar for my little students.  It is always good to use real life examples when you teach, right?
