Perhaps you’ll find this sampling of spam comments I receive as odd and amusing as I do:

  1. I agree with Bonnie. Is there a way that you can tell where they are when they read your blog? I have the opposite problem. Nobody ever comments. I think people try (I think YOU’VE tried!) but there must be some glitch that prevents them. So I never see what people think unless I send an e-mail and ask ‘em. On the up side, I never get any spam. Ha!

      The syntax of these comments is so twisted that I suspect they do originate in far away lands. But my sympathies for non-English speakers does not go so far as to compel me to click on their spam. I worry that my blog will become infected with some computer crud that makes it possible for them to slip by the filter and plaster my pages with endless Tramadol, Viagra, and Lipitor ads…or worse.

      With regards to your earthwalkerone blog, I think I’m getting hung up on the “Select Profile” button on your site. I’ve tried using Google Accounts and WordPress, but neither seems to work. I see Dick Jorden and got a comment to appear. We’ll have to ask him how he did it.

    Hi dear friend. I think that most of the blog comments were posted by non-native speakers of English! Interesting.
