Spammy spam spam

Over the past few weeks, we've been noticing a disturbing trend. Mr (or Mrs, we suppose) Anonymous has been busy, busy leaving comments on our blog posts. Now, Dear Readers, you're probably completely unaware of this unless you have your very own blog with your very own anonymous spammers because Blogger, bless his heart, is very good at weeding out the comments. Blogger quarantines them all but we still get them delivered to us by email. Some of them are just dumb but some of them, oh, some of them are worthy of true derision. So, in that spirit, we thought we'd share one of the best ... minus the hotlink that always accompanies spam. Here goes.... on the post Relaxation 6 cookies at a time, which was clearly about decorating cookies, our friendly spammy follower has written:

"Great goods from you, man. I've understand your stuff previous to and you are just too magnificent. I actually like what you have acquired here, certainly like what you are saying and the way in which you say it. You make it entertaining and you still take care of to keep it wise. I can not wait to read much more from you. This is really a terrific web site.
My website : how to know when a boy likes you at a party"

Did you hear that? We are truly "too magnificent". Ah, it's so good to be appreciated.


  1. Haha! You get much better spam than I do !!

  2. haha! I tweaked my settings to only allow comments on posts that are <15 days old, and I think I reject anonymous ones, and that seems to really help a lot!

  3. most magnificant! I have been getting similar ones and must say I truly apprecieate the way blogger holds them under SPAM so I can go and delete them. Easy to pick out cause they always have a link to something or another which I never check out -- I do also get legitimate anonymous comments which I allow. It is somewhat flattering tho when some anonymous somebody tells you how great you are even if they don't really mean it!

  4. How can you be "too magnificent"? I think you are just magnificent enough!
    Don't let it go to your head.

  5. See, even the spammers think you are fantastic! I wonder sometimes who writes this stuff. Some spam I get is so lengthy. I can only assume that they haven't yet realized that we just hit *delete all*

  6. Too funny, but the words ring true: "wise", "great goods", "terrific"....and of course that "too magnificient" :)


Grandma Coco welcomes your comments. Thanks for taking the time to leave a message. Because we know we'll get spam, we're reminding everybody not to click on any link in the comments section. Just ignore the spammers and maybe they'll go away. Ha!
