One of the most rewarding parts of the whole blogging thing is receiving positive feedback, both from real people and internet people. I’ve never been one to turn down a compliment (unless of course it’s in shout form and comes with an offensive whistle). So, as you might guess, I’m happy to accept all forms of blog related compliments. Even computer generated ones.
There’s a nifty feature on the blogging platform I use that sorts out spam comments for you. I hadn’t perused the filtered out comments until recently. This is my greatest blogging regret to date. Why? Because some of the comments are priceless. Unfortunately, I can’t go back and see the old ones that have been deleted by the system. Apparently there have been 984 spam comments caught since I started the blog. That’s blog material down the drain, you guys! Bummer. Also, sorry to anyone who may have left a legitimate comment that got swept into the spam category. It wasn’t my fault. Honest.
Like I do with the search terms, I’ve selected my favorite comments to share with you. I’ve added commentary and also specified which post each comment relates to.
On The Kenny Prank: “Thank you for making the honest attempt to explain this. I feel very strong about it and want to be told more. If it’s OK, as you attain more extensive knowledge, could you thoughts adding extra posts very similar to this one with more information? It would be extremely helpful and useful for me and my colleagues.” If it’s OK, could you thoughts proofreading your spam comments before mass-posting them?
On My Date with Prince Charming: “Holy conscie data batman. Lol!” How funny! That’s exactly what I said!
On the About page: “Me and this artlice, sitting in a tree, L-E-A-R-N-I-N-G!” First of all, this isn’t an article (or an artlice). Second of all, that is one of the stupidest things I’ve ever heard. Everyone knows you can only do that with a word that has 7 letters.
On Is Magnum, P.I. my Father? An Investigation by Carly, P.I.: “Thanks for writing such an easy-to-udenrstnad article on this topic.” You’re welcome. At first I was going to make it all scientificy and stuff, but then changed my mind at the last minute. After all, nobody wants to read yet another article about Tom Selleck that’s over their head. By the way, is “udenrstnad” a city in the Middle East?
On Conversations with a 500 Year-old: Part 1: “On a regular basis check your pc’s total technique. I enjoy to run reads right away since they decrease your personal computer and could acquire some time. Only if section of your personal computer program seems to be infected, you can check your imagine part merely. If you’re employing a free plan, make sure that that eliminates the malware it has determined. Some no cost applications may recognize the threats but need find the put in purchase for this to take out chlamydia. I believe these programs should be erased as well as replaced by applications which may have entire functionality.” Whoa, whoa, whoa! I knew computers could get viruses, but…chlamydia?? What is this world coming to?? I’ll give my computer a stern talking to tonight about its unsafe practices. Please tell me how to purchase the anti-biotic software to cure this horrible disease.
On the About page: “I’m impressed by your writing. Are you a professional or just very knolwegdealbe?” Oh, you are too kind! While I’d like to say I’m a professional writer, I am not. Also, while I’d like to say I’m knolwegdealbe, I can’t even pronounce it.
On Is Magnum, P.I. my Father? An Investigation by Carly, P.I.: “Your anwesr shows real intelligence.” Thank you. I’ve always claimed to be intelligent, but have never really believed it until just now. This proves that the best way to demonstrate ones intelligence is to write about how their father once looked like a celebrity. I knew I should have put that in my Harvard application.
On the About page: “I am a cistosnent reader of your blog! I like to read about the LO’s and momma’s I know. I think it is fun to hear what others are up to and see pics. Haha okay I probably sound like a stalker but I swear I am not!” What’s a “LO?” Do you mean “momma” literally? I’m not a momma (not to a human anyway). And I don’t know you. There aren’t any pics on this page. Yes, you sound like a stalker and I am terrified. Seriously though, what’s a “LO?”
On My Date with Prince Charming: “This is teelatsss, but brilliant!” How dare you! And thank you…

I undoubtedly enjoying each little bit of it and I’ve you bookmarked to check out new stuff you weblog post.” You are so welcome for the excellent learn. I try my best to learn people, especially when it comes to pranking. I’ll continue to weblog post as long as you continue to undoubtedly spam me.
