I hope to write some more substantial entries soon. It has been difficult to find the time and motivation in the middle of job hunting. For now, we revisit the Spam Bin!
There were three new entries today with two standouts. One was the normal, poorly written/translated deal that goes something like this – ‘i stumble onto you thoughts and they are like thoughts i wish would fall from my head. Back come will i for plus plus’.
Then there were two new and innovative approaches to Spam – though both were still poorly written. The first of these went something like this – ‘i come your blog to find inspired. I find this not. You waste time and seek attention only with things you could fix if you want.’ Now let’s be clear – this could totally apply to me, and almost every other ‘first-person’ blogger. There may even be some entries in my blog that would warrant this admonition – but this was intended to be posted as a comment to the entry on Meditation. I think that is probably the least self-involved and self-indulgent entry on the whole blog. And, the email address of the “person” who tried to post this was something like [email protected]
The final example for today was a new form of clever. “I left a comment on your blog one time and signed for mail about replies. Now i get mails 4 times in the day about comments. This every day and all are Spam. Can fix so no more will this happen?” Wow – it almost got me for a micro-second. But the good side of having an obscure blog with an incredibly small readership – i know everyone who has an approved comment personally, and i also am ‘signed for mail about replies’ so i would be getting those same messages. But still – a nice attempt.
I do welcome comments of all sorts and would approve and share comments that presented less than flattering impressions of me and the blog. If you ‘come my blog to find inspired’ and find only a whiny self-indulgent fellow, comment away and i will share it – so long as you are a real human and not a spammer, phisher, or other nefarious electro-being. I have to protect my two dedicated readers, 10 regulars, and the other 10-20 people who sometimes drop in…
