Last Month in Spam: Wow, England. Wow.

Hey guys! I’m finally back to regular blog writing. I honestly did not realize how long it had been since I made a post. I suppose that’s what happens when I get really into writing my novel, then get horrid writer’s block and hit my head against a wall for a bit, then go on a trip to England, then rediscover an old favorite game.

Since my last post, I’ve received no fewer than 13 spam comments. Most of them are fairly generic, but the real stand-outs are the four latest ones, which all occurred during said trip to England. I was only there for a week, with hotel wifi as my computer’s only option for Internet connection. I didn’t get to use it much, but somehow, this ended up getting spambots from the UK to message me.

They were all escort services.

I kid you not. The names of the spam accounts were, in order, “Nottingham Escorts,” “Escorts in Leicester,” “Bristol Escort,” and “escorts in bristol.”

Within this grouping, two in particular were rather interesting. “Bristol Escort” did something I’d never seen before: give a spambot attempt at concrit. I quote:

However, consider this, what if you were to write a awesome title?

I am not suggesting your content is not solid., but suppose you added something to possibly get folk’s
attention? … You should glance at Yahoo’s home
page and see how they create article headlines to grab
viewers to open the links. You might add a video
or a related pic or two to grab people interested about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it could make
your posts a little bit more interesting.

Apparently, UK spambots have figured out that humans usually share some negative opinions along with the positives. Adding to the weirdness is the fact that the writing style here is actually relatively lucid, as compared to the bizarre misspelling-ridden and grammatically poor comments left by American spambots. The British even do spambots better, guys.

The other standout was… well, it was when someone had apparently managed to fuck with the spambot’s algorithm. I really can’t do anything but post the entire text of the comment, just so you can see it.

Having read this I thought it was rather enlightening.
I appreciate you finding the time and effort to put this
information together. I once again find myself spending a significant amount of time both reading and commenting.
