Really?


A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post wherein I figured we were now a "big time" blog as we get spam. Consistent spam, three or four a day. Sometimes as many as eight.

Well, in the You Gotta Be Shitting Me Department, that post, which is about spam, received a spam comment. Somehow seems fitting.

There are days when I want to do something like this with the spammers...


Yup, launch a full airstrike, Weasels and all.

I don't get it, I just don't get it. Spam comments are typically on old posts, sometimes posts that are a number of years old. I am the only one who sees those (unless Juvat and Tuna are also peaking under the hood from time to time) so what's the point?

Really, you like the "fastidious content of this weblog".

I'm not sure you know what that word means.

Give it up lasertest, I am not  going to check out your site, ever.





If you're thinking "Damn, Sarge is just going through the motions today..." Well, you're partially right. The Muse is being lazy, I ain't much better and I just started a Director's Cut marathon of the Lord of the Rings movies. Yup, all three. All at least 3 hours long.

I tell ya, other than the spam, I'm having an awesome Twelve Day celebration. Oh, did I mention I hit Barnes & Noble while in possession of a $75 gift card? No? Well I did. It was magnificent.

Now run along, I have some serious goofing off to do. Not to mention getting ready for Hogmanay.

  1. At least you're nearly up to date on your movies. I'm watching things like the Glenn Miller Story and High Society!

    1. Both of which are excellent films. I did watch the Glenn Miller Story a while back. I think I watched it with my parents, both of whom were big fans of his.

      And through clever but confidential methodology we have identified him

    5. A brilliant bit of detective work Juvat. From the rooftops of Riyadh to the back alleys of Kabul, you tracked him down.

      Oh dear, listen to me drone on...

      Drone?!?!

  4. Being just a scrub in blogger land, I only get two or three a week. Have a special folder I keep them in. Enjoy sending one spammer's link to another spammer. Yeah, I need to get a life.

  7. Dear (insert name here): I am have been enjoying the discussion here. Much valuable information!

    It's a sad state of affairs when spam is too lazy to fill in your name! But then, maybe I don't give them enough to work with? Like that time I received an email telling me that members of the "Positive family" had died in a plane crash and I was most likely next in line for their estate.
