So, this showed up in the comment filter/moderation queue a day or so ago:
“Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My site discusses a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!”
In other words…..
So far as I was able to determine without actually clicking any links, the site to which the trapped comment linked back is a dating/match-making/hook-up site of some sort from somewhere in Europe. As irony would have it, the comment had been posted to this bit of weirdness I wrote about SEO spammers back in August.
I’ll wait while you conjure a joke or two of your own.
We good? All righty, then.
My favorite part, of course, is this bit:
“My site discusses a lot of the same topics as yours….”
Well, that’s certainly not true, but I imagine that if I did write about the same sorts of things that appear to reign supreme over there, I’d be getting shit-ton more blog hits, for sure.
This isn’t the first time I’ve gotten some flavor of this particular bit of spammage, but like everything else of this sort, it seems to be coming with greater frequency. Obviously the douche nozzles on the other end of missives like this are trying to tunnel their way under the perimeter security barriers surrounding stately Ward Manor, but to what end? I’m certainly not going to write anything suitable for their site, and I damned sure don’t want anything of theirs over here. I mean, I like to think I’ve got the market cornered at this particular blog so far as utterly useless postings and other nonsense is concerned.
Anybody else getting stuff like this?
