Spammers have become so complimentary

Tuesday, June 26, 2007 17:09 | Filled in geek stuff

Here is a sampling of the great things they have had to say about my blog lately:

“Your site is a refreshing change from the majority of sites I have visited. When I first started visiting web sites I was excited by the potential of the internet as a resource and was very disappointed initially. You have restored my enthusiasm and I thank you for your efforts to share your insights and help the world become a better place.”  That’s going a little too far, don’t you think?

“I found your website after I have been surfing the internet to be useful”  This one is like a little word puzzle.  Did he find my website only after he stopped bring useful?  Perhaps after he stopped surfing the internet, although that is a logical contradiction.

“Thank your for the hard work you must have put in to create this wonderful facility.”  It would be so much more effective if you knew English better, I think.

“Logging into this website should be a requirement for anyone knowledgeable on earth these days…”  Even for your typical egomaniacal blogger, this is a bit strong.

“I came accross this website today searching for any informations. I did not find them, but your site was very interesting.”  I think there was an insult in there somewhere.

“Your site is a much needed addition to my life. THANK YOU!” Now we’re talking!

“U’ve got good pics, the site could use a tiny bit of work (no offense) its still awesome”  Now I’m sure there is an insult in there.  Besides, I don’t think I even have any pictures.

Some of the ones I agree with: ;)

“My god u kept me entertained.”
“Boy, this is some high-class site”
“What a great web site…”
“I love this site, there is so much information to be found. Thank you.”
“I really, truly am glad I found this site. It has answered so many questions for me. I will be back. Thank You”
“This is a very beautiful website, I have enjoyed my visit here very much. I’m very honoured to sign in your guestbook. Thanking you for the great work that you are doing here.”

Of course there are a few where I’m not sure if I agree or not:

“Schöne Seite”
“Super Informationen verpackt in einem tollen Design.”

I still don’t like spam, but I dig it when they are polite.
