Answering Spam

SPAM! [don't buy]

Normally do this on Friday, but, I had nothing.  The a beauty hit my mail box and I just had to answer.   Here is the spam message, without the link of course.

This is a comment to the webmaster. I came to your “It’s A Birthday Day For The Hobbler Is It Possible To See It All” page via Google but it was hard to find as you were not on the first page of search results. I see you could have more traffic because there are not many comments on your site yet. I have found a website which offers to dramatically increase your rankings and traffic to your site:(link) I managed to get close to 1000 visitors/day using their services, you could also get lot more targeted visitors from search engines than you have now. Their free trial and brought significantly more traffic to my site. Hope this helps :) Take care.

My answer.

Dear Shauer794@gma…..

First allow me to compliment on your stylish use of emoticons.  It makes me feel that you are indeed a true budding friend that sincerely worries about my Google ranking.  I know it is tough to find me on Google and I can think of a few reasons.  First, you would have to be specifically looking for my blog and second, why the heck would you be looking for Hobblers birthday day posts?  What in God’s name were you googling.  Just curious. At any rate, I feel that it is only fair that I warn you that I have passed on your e-mail to Hobbler.  She is one tough lady and I am sure she is going to want to discuss (at length and for hours, if not days) the reasons why this post is not on the first page of Google search results.

My sympathies,

  1. There needs to be a team of spammers for spammers.

  2. I love the Hobbler.
    And I was relegated to spam status for a large portion of today.
    Just thought I would mention both of those facts, even though, in retrospect, they were not all that interesting.

  3. I’m laughing out loud for real. Wait a sec…what are you trying to say “hours, if not days”? I know it seems like I like to talk, but really, I am a quiet person.

    There have been a few nights I have stayed up all night in deep commenting conversations, but everyone has those right? Sure I’ve spent Several hours of the past two nights commenting back and forth with someone I just met, but I am just friendly like that.

    Even if I’m not being friendly, I just am joking around, or I just am curious about people…

  4. Geez John – I know hte spam was bad, but putting her on Hobblers radar?
    You’re tough, man!

  5. Geez, go and fold some laundry and all heck breaks loose

  6. Hi,
    Oh yes the joys of spam, don’t you just love what they came out with. 🙂

  7. I think I come to read the comments with a side of blog here now….

  8. I got the same spam message. I was beginning to feel like a flunky with a blog when that thing hit me in between the eyes….nice to know I’m not alone in the spam radar…

    I too am a huge fan of the stylish use of emoticons. Nothing says “hey, let down your guard stranger and let’s be friends,” quite like a big ol’ digital happy face.
