One problem about being Wales’ favourite blogger is that, should I ever get Dugg or Buzzed to buggery is that this blog will become the target of some of the more unsavoury characters on the internet.
No I’m not talking about Guy, I’m talking about spam bots.
I woke up this morning to check my emails as well as my Askimet spam blocker. Akismet is the world’s most difficultÂ WordPress plugin to spell. Aksimet is primarily designed to stop spam bots from hawking their wares in your comments. Of course, it isn’t fool proof, as a few comments of genuinely official bloggers have been labelled as spam, so I always get around to check it. Here is what greeted me this morning.
Fucks sake. Half way down, I saw this.
Now, Bush happens to be the nickname of a friend of mine. I doubt it’s him, but by god I had to do a bit of investigating (a bit meaning read the 2nd line of the comment). I know it’s quiet on the Isle of Man, but by god, resorting to spamming Bush? That’s low!
It reminds me of the time a few years ago that spam bots masked email addresses from your address book, and I had Sibley offering me stock options, Guy being on the run from the Ivory Coast government with USD$100,000,000 (ONE HUNDRED MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS) that needed a bank account, and my ex girlfriend saying I had a pitiful erection and I’m like throwing a twiglet in the Grand Canyon.
Come to think about it, the last one may not be spam.
What’s the funniest spam you’ve ever recieved?
