The Ridiculousness of Spam

no spamWordPress has many great plug-ins that block spam comments, but eventually spammers find ways to get through. When you have a blog primarily about art and music, you know you’ve been spammed when these are the keywords and phrases coming up in your comments:

cambogia weight-loss, facelift, Pokemon, Brussels, Viagra, machine, arguments, doctor, hacker, video game, plantar fasciitis, cheat tool, knife, circular saw, cigar, bitcoin, carpet shampooing, used car, dog food, membrane, flooding, water pressure, fleas bit my children, cancer, xbox, counseling, whey protein, cracker, donate, plumbing, maceration, synthetic blend, 12 mm pieces, degradation, engine oil additive, basement crack, epoxy repair, skinny, belly fat, sleeping bags, robot…

Thanks to the plug-in ‘En Spam’ I now have more time to be entertained by other things. But, I have to admit, my favorite phrase is ‘fleas bit my children.’  Believe me, it wouldn’t have been possible to make up anything that ridiculous.
