Flattery gets you nowhere

22 January 2011

Spammers seem to think that their spam is more acceptable if they dress it up with lots of patently insincere flattery. Fortunately WordPress uses Akismet, which seems to have very good spam detection qualities, and so all I need to do is finally delete the comments flagged as spam. I very occasionally look at them, and my eye was caught by this one, which strings together all the flattering cliches ever uttered by any spammers while, as usual, managing to say nothing at all.

Your post is very useful. Thank you so much for providing plenty of useful content.Thanks a lot for sharing these information. The post has also helped a lot. Look forward to your next post Your blog is very useful. Thank you so much for providing plenty of useful content. I have bookmark your blog site and will be without doubt coming back. Once again, I appreciate all your work and also providing a lot vital tricks for your readers. Thanks for the great idea you have post. I’ll wait for another info which will you share.

But one wonders at the mentality of someone who appears to think that repetition of such garbage will actually fool the recipient. It doesn’t even fool Akismet.
