Tasty treat or unwanted garbage?

SPAM: Recently, after posting my entry for October 31, 2012 entitled: ‘Penis size – a reader’s questions’, I’ve been getting spam disguised as comments. The comments start out telling me what an ‘important blog’ I have, how interesting the information is and how everyone should read it…etc, etc. A bit over the top! Reading the messages several times it becomes obvious that the syntax and cadence of the wording is wrong so they were probably written by someone whose primary language isn’t English.

Then in the second paragraph they mention the URL of their own blog, hoping I will post the comment and link. I’ve had that sort of thing happen before from porn sites, but not twelve in a week, seven in the last day! LOL! And these appear to be from individuals. However, you can’t really tell about what might be behind a URL, or if the author(s) should be on a regimen of antiretroviral meds. The messages were deleted immediately.

In case the person who wrote about penis size was the thin end of the spam wedge – which I suspect is the case, since I don’t believe in coincidences - I’m deleting that post. My bad!


  1. I can only imagine the frustration involved. A professional medical site in the UK was rendered useless for a month or so by a group of anti-circumcision nut cases filling it with their propaganda. Another similar group is against vasectomy. OK, guys, do not have the procedure but do not base your arguments on crap science. I do medical commentary for a sex ed site.

    The bit on penis size seems to be a concern mostly of teen agers and exclusively of men. The fact is we women know more about penis size than they do - they spend their lives with one penis and we women get to investigate as many as we wish. You may be correct in that one post being exploratory with many to follow. That appears to be an approach by unsophisticated spammers.

    Thanks for working to keep this clear of that crap.

  2. A typical quote from a spammer:

    “Attractive portion of content. I just stumbled upon your weblog and in accession capital to assert that I acquire in fact loved account your blog posts.”

    You can easily see that is written by someone who has a poor grasp of English. Perhaps s/he is the widow(er) of the Nigerian bank president who needed my help so desperately, in transferring twenty-two million dollars into a local account, that she was willing to give me 5% of it if I would first lend her $5, 000!

    Or, perhaps some drunk MIT student(s)

    You think? LOL!

  3. Has anyone actually tasted Spam? Never looked that inviting!

    Never understood random spam messages... just bizarre - some people have way too much time on their hands!

    p.s. missed you Jill :)

  4. Paul, it depends on how hungry you are as to how good Spam tastes.

    More nonsense from my admirers:

    “For the reason that the admin of this web page is working, no uncertainty very soon it will be renowned due to its feature content.”

    “It actually used to be a amusement account it. Glance complex to far added agreeable from you!”

    Really! I’m not making this stuff up! From the clarity and directness of thought some of these guys may be tech-writers for the IRS.

  5. I actually tried to write similar nonsense to further amuse you, but I simply could not! Priceless. The first is almost definitely a Japanese writer saying, very formally, "your effort is paying off." I have no idea on the second.

    I did follow through with a friend in the psychiatry department about why I so prefer women as lovers but the incubus always appears as some male from my past. She rather laughed it off but, with a little pushing, suggested she have a panel of shrinks from different backgrounds do a complete workup, recorded and a basis for a paper. Academics do love their papers! In the meantime, I am seeing her once a week to help her understand what they may be dealing with. Looks like we will be starting with my first sexual urges and coming up to date. She is not going deep but just getting a complete knowledge of my sexual history. Rather interesting process.
