A lot of spam comes to blogs.  That is why comments are screened:  to keep the robot generated junk out.  It’s held in a spam filter and must be gone through.  Abundant and irritating, a few are worth the time wasted.

Here are my favourites.

The Flatterers

Some spammers, I guess, hope you’ll say ‘oh they like me!’  –

I don’t even understand how I ended up right here, but I thought this post cat sitting on laptopwas terrific. I have no idea who you’re but without doubt you’re gonna a popular blogger in the event you aren’t previously Cheers!

It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d definitely donate to this fantastic blog! I suppose for now i’ll settle for bookmarking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to new updates and will talk about this site with my Facebook group. Talk soon!

The Critics

Some, you gotta wonder what their marketing strategy is –

If I could say 1 factor about this blog page it could be structure! I signify, I had been so distracted with the clashing colors that it was pointless to try out to read through the site. What exactly are making an attempt to do here exactly? No one can go through that is if it seems like a child smashed a box of Crayola in your page! Be sure to do a thing about this.

obviously like your web-site however you have to test the spelling on several of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I in finding it very troublesome to inform the truth however I will surely come again again.

Then there are ‘damning with faint praise’ ones –

well, kind of interesting post, thank you.

The WTF?? spam

hey i did not understand what are you saying about. somewhat i understood on that basis i don’t agree with this. thanks for posting.

And my all time favourite, from an erectile dysfunction product address.  With this attitude, all the pills in the world won’t help –

the next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.

Update for Real Life Comments

cat watching dog video on computer screenThis, dear readers, will be my last mid-week post for a while.  I have a couple big projects that must be done.  I will continue doing the Corrie Scene of the Week and will approve comments.  But I won’t be able to respond to specific ancestry queries.

If you wish to follow the discussion, click on “comments feed” at the top left.  If readers can help with queries, please do so.  I’d like to keep alive what’s become an active Newfoundland Mi’kmaq forum.  I’ll be back, with results of what I’m working on, as soon as I can.
