I don’t get a lot of views, but today I received a spam comment on this video that was even funnier than any I ever got here at WordPress:
Hey, A Ruined Chapel by Moonlight! I love your video! Keep it up. 🙂 I want to start making YouTube videos soon, too. [Link to Patreon page here, removed for obvious reasons] It would be so great if you could support me with a dollar to get things started because I need equipment for my videos. There’s no need to feel bad if you can’t, I still think you’re great and I wish you the best for you and your channel. This comment will be marked as spam because of the link, I’m sorry about that. Peace & Love, [Name withheld, again, obvious reasons]
Now, I am all for helping fellow YouTubers who are down on their luck. I might even have done it, too, except that despite the person’s professed love for my video, they didn’t bother to actually “like” it. My feeling is that if they couldn’t be bothered to do that, I really can’t pay them a dollar.
It’s been a long time since I checked the spam comments folder to see what sort of hilarity is in there. Let’s see what we’ve got…
“I truly love yoour blog.. Veery ice colors & theme.

“People really does a lot more than visitors’ expectations. Many thanks with regard to render these types of valuable, trustworthy, edifying as well as trendy applying for grants this issue to help Kate.”
This mixture of the generic spam and the oddly specific ending is a little unsettling. I hope whatever Kate needed wasn’t serious.
“all the time i used to read smaller content that also clear their motive, and that is also happening with this piece of writing which I am reading at this time.”
Keep me informed.
“I’ll immediately grasp your rss as I can’t in finding your email subscription link or e-newsletter service. Do you’ve any? Please let me recognize so that I could subscribe. Thanks.”
Never grasp the rss on a first date.
“The most clear career selection as a graduate of a Masters
in Hospitality Management degree would be to take on a management function in the hospitality sector.”
Actually, this may not be spam. It could be my old college career advisor. Their advice was about as useful.
“Oh my goodness! Amazing article dude! Thanks, However I am having troubles with your RSS. I don’t understand the reason why I cannot subscribe to it. Is there anybody having identical RSS problems? Anyone that knows the solution will you kindly respond? Thanx!!”
I dunno… I hear Kate has some problem. Could be related to grasping her RSS.
“It’s remarkable to visit this web page and reading the views of all mates on the topic of this article, while I am also eager of getting familiarity.”
Look, I believe in taking it slow.
“Frequently also endowed using a positive, outgoing character. Double Virgo: Aug 23 – June 1 With a powerful need to repeatedly check specifics – this double Virgin basically enjoys the constant search for brilliance. To others they often times seem to be in constant action. An incredibly realistic, but bold form Virgo. Relatively of a social climber, they logically operate their approach up any hierarchy they’ve their views fixed on. Virgo + Taurus: Sept 13 – September 22 Consequently they tend to worry significantly less than one other two decantes. Functional to the primary and not one to be lured into routes of fancy. Dual Libra: June 23 – Oct 2 An energetic social existence of some type is crucial for this decante. A sense of justice is inborn, they have minor patience for those that donot follow the guidelines of the terrain. It is a cooler sort Libra, there is more emphasis placed on creating the intelligence. A liking for bigger events is present. Being a part of a bunch or membership can also be important for them. An extremely chatty Libra decante indeed. People skills are highly developed, acquiring buddies is straightforward for this 1. This sort includes a sturdy requirement for a spoken outlet. Dual Scorpio: Oct 24 – Nov 2 Able to determine other’s celebrities in a heartbeat.”
I’m a Leo, so this is of no use to me. Perhaps it will help Kate.
“You won’t eel any cravings forr an extenred time and you will be capawble to avoid any etra calories. Don’t try to find it in a single “magic” pill contrived by modern medicine.”
I won’t. Certainly not after what happened to Kate.
you should explaine to me you actually could not merely start using a wikipedia web-site to prove a point……
That was on this post. Admittedly, that post doesn’t quote Wikipedia, but I have quite a few posts that do. So there is some context in which this could possibly make sense. And it’s even written in something resembling correct English. It certainly would pass muster among the lowest rung of non-spam YouTube comments.
I, for one, do not welcome our new spam comment overlords.

What are Mark Zuckerberg’s blog posts in the movie “The Social Network”?
Poorly written… he had to invent Facebook to have someplace to put them.

It is relatively simple to search for designer discounts
on the web. Lady Gaga wore a bright magenta shirt and teamed it
with a simple square pattern. If strange symbols are replacing the real ones,
you’re surely looking at a house and it’s just looking at a house and it’s just looking at a house the whole time.
This is almost existential, I think. “If strange symbols are replacing the real ones”–I could see T.S. Eliot writing that. Granted, he would decide it wasn’t very good, but I could see it.
This set me thinking that someone should create poems compiled from spam comments. Well, some searching revealed that, in fact, someone has, and it’s quite funny! Check it out.
I’m pleased to report that we have a bumper crop this time around:
“Observe up the monumental hunk of process, I show handful points on this internet site also I deem that your net scene is rattling stimulating furthermore has places of splendid news.”
“The monumental hunk of process” sounds like something they do in Six Sigma

I think he is trying to say that people won’t read anything that’s not about Lady Gaga. This comment was on my Max Weber and football post. Which gives me an idea: what would Weber think of Lady Gaga?
Empathetic for your monstrous inspect, in addition I’m just seriously very good as an alternative to Zune, and consequently optimism them, together with the quite very good critical reviews some other players have documented, will let you determine whether it does not take appropriate choice for you.

Yes, am using WordPress. You’re a sharp one, I can tell. The fact that your name advertised a “fake diploma” tells me that you should be able to fake the programming knowledge needed for blogging.
