Akismet May Call it SPAM, but I Call it Traffic

April 16, 2012

This One is For My Readers:

As some of my blog entries have received a bit of readership, I’ve begun to notice WordPress’s “Akistmet” spam blocker is grabbing up some of my comments.  Although, I have transferred most of these into a “permanently delete” file for safe keeping, I was so tickled to get any comments at all, I read each one of these clearly personal addresses.

It’s true, I typically did not let these “SPAM” comments through to their respective pages, but my appreciation for them is real, and I think each one is absolutely great, even if the translation software the authors used to write them was not.  This entry is in tribute and response to a few of my favorites.

In response to  Happy National Sourbread Day, No Hands SEO Sale wrote: “I feel this is among the such a lot significant info for me. And i am satisfied studying your article. But should remark on some general issues, The site style is wonderful, the articles is in reality excellent : D. Good job, cheers”

No Hands SEO Sale, I am happy that my take on sourbread was such a lot significant for you, and although your general issues of criticsm were a harsh and unexpected deviation from the first part of your comment, I feel they’ll help me focus more on honing my words to capture my thoughts.  Thank you.

In response to Happy Bagels and Lox Day, Jeffery Howman wrote: “I like this web site very much, Its a really nice billet to read and find info. “Some people are so afraid to die that they never begin to live.” by Henry Van Dyke”.

Jeff, I was so appreciative and touched of your comment that I actually posted it, after looking up the word billet.  Although the intent of the blog was not to lodge soldiers, I am a big fan of my country’s troops, and certainly do hope they are all very comfortable here.

In response to Half Ass Cinnamon Crescent Rolls, Darin Harden wrote:  “hi!,I like your writing very so much! proportion we keep up a correspondence more about your article on AOL? I need a specialist on this area to unravel my problem. May be that’s you! Having a look forward to peer you.”

Oh Darin, I’m sorry! I don’t have an AOL account, but I definitely understand needing an expert to consult with on cinnamon crescent rolls, and would be happy to do what I can.  Maybe I will peer you as well.

In response to Happy National Empanada Day, Printabale Tampax Coupons wrote: Is it only me or does it seem like a few of the responses come across like they are coming from brain dead people? :-P

Printable Tampax Coupons, what’s made you so grumpy towards the other comments? You weren’t acting this way earlier in the month.  It’s like your mood changed over night.

In response to Happy National Cheese Fondue Day, Pillsforall Information wrote: “Excellent beat ! I wish to apprentice at the same time as you amend your web site, how could i subscribe for a weblog site? The account aided me a applicable deal. I were tiny bit acquainted of this your broadcast offered vivid clear concept”

No, Pillsforall Information, you’re an excellent beat!  But you really don’t need to apprentice me.  The WordPress applications are pretty simple.  If I can do it anyone can.  If you are going to start a blog, however, I would recommend beginning writing in your own native language.

In response to Happy National Peach Cobbler Day, e Cigarette wrote: “A lot of ecigs are meant to are like genuine cigarette smoking implements, including cigs, pipes, or maybe water lines, but the majority of carry the way of ballpoint dog pens or maybe screwdrivers due to the fact the ones models will be more handy to deal with your parts included.”

e Cigarette, thank you so very much! You’re comment has meant the most to me of all of them, and I couldn’t agree more about ecigs that carry the way of ballpoint dog pens.  Finally someone has the nerve to get out there and say it!

Finally, a quick and very special shout out to Sexdating, Rank 1 on Search Engine and What is the Treatment for Lymphoma!  You guys are great.  Please keep checking in and putting up the comments!

      Thanks, Robotic Rhetoric! Your accomodation is for me always a better variety. Today you certainly famished and entrenched me with you kindly wording.

    Haha! I really liked this! I was cracking up – the things they write hmm? It’s funny because I noticed a bunch of spam comments today as well in-which I only approved two they sounded somewhat genuine.

    Love it!

      Thanks, Katie. They truly are creative in their own generic way, arent they?

    Wow, talk about mining for gold in crap! I never read my Akismet queue. You’ve turned it into a funny post.

      Thanks, liberalcynic. Sometimes it takes the right shovel, I suppose, but I find when I keep my eyes and mind open that comedy is happening everywhere! Just today, I found myself laughing at a shoe!!

    I don’t know how I landed on your blog first thing this morning, (I should be out in the barn shovelling some crap myself) but I’m so glad I did. I’m definitely not a writer which is why I won’t be plugging my blog here, haha. You make me want to be better. Thanks for the laugh!

      Yay for inspiration! And I’m so glad you got a laugh. Thank you for letting me know.

      I hope you keep at it. Remember when you don’t know what to write, just write something!
