When maintaining a number of blogs, it's par for the course to have the occasional spam reply to a post. Unfortunately for them, there's a moderation feature that disallows anything getting through.

Until today.

I've had numerous messages left in the past few weeks. All rambling out of context to what I have written but all seemingly wanting to use my site to get back links or to promote what they have to sell.

For today, and today only, I'm going to post some of the ludicrous things I have been sent without - I must add - any of the links that were conveniently left at the bottom of their response.

Spammer 1 writes:

I'm not that much of an online reader to be honest but your sites really nice, keep it up! I'll go ahead and bookmark your website to come back later on. All the best.

He then proceeded to plug a live video chat app.

Spammer 2 offers these words of wisdom :

If it gets too hot or too cold they simply die off.
Ask a dermatologist why they had to go to graduate school
Dry vapor means the output does not contain liquid water content of more than 5%

I have no idea what this has to do with betting odds, but there you go.

Spammer 3 tried posting :

Wow, this blog looks exactly like the old one! It's on a totally different topic but it has pretty much the same layout and design. 
Wonderful choice of colours!

Is this meant to be a compliment? He's not going to be able to sell his 'dominant female movies' with me!

These are three examples of the many messages left on my blogs now and again. It does get in the way of genuine responses at times but thankfully clicking the 'delete' and 'mark as spam' buttons do the job.

..I think I'll have Spam Fritters for dinner tonight.
