I’m going to share the text of a single comment, which I found marked as SPAM. It’s interesting because it seems to comprise of a lot of unrelated individual spam comments which the author might have intended to spam multiple blog posts. The comments in themselves are like regular SPAM – irrelevant/overly appreciative/funny but their presence in a single one is funnier.

So, how does it end up in a single comment? Is it the case of an automation gone wrong or a copy paste error or sheer stupidity of the SPAMmer?

What’s up, just wanted to mention, I liked this blog post. It was inspiring. Keep on posting!

    What is this Rahul? Help me understand….Content is not in line with topic?

    If I were a SPAMer, I would employ automation rather than doing it manually. To implement the same I would have a list of SPAM comments, from which I would pick up one comment at a time, randomly or sequentially, and then send it to the rest of the logic for a SPAM-prone logic of a website.

    One type of screw-up which can happen in such a logic is a problem in “take-one-comment-at-a-time” logic”, wherein the next step in automation assumes what it got is one comment (whereas it got many).

    A sincere suggestion. Please start appreciating the lighter side of things. This post is a remark on SPAMers. The moment you start academic surgery of the same, you would miss the fun part of it.

    B.t.w. I’m not justifying the fitness of topic to the contents. I’m sure there would be a better title for the post.

    Rahul calling Rahul 🙂

    I rarely comment on posts I read. And when I do so, I try to remain crisp and to the point and that’s where (/probably) I miss lighter things.
    I know I can do much better. Thanks for throwing some more light on the post.
