Lately, the spammers have gotten more clever, this doesn’t make them smart, just not quite as dumb as usual.
The newest spammer asked for MY help in setting up a blog site?( My, husband is still laughing!) The flaw with this approach was that they listed their own nifty blog site along with their request. Which made me even more suspicious of them needed my “expert” help.
Usually the type of spam I get, is some kind of a business link with the spammer telling me how much they love my site and how much I need their services. Too bad the expert business man or woman can’t spell and I can’t help wonder if you won’t bother to use spell checker, how great of a business mind can you have?
Once in a while I get messages having to do with finding sources for good mental health. I suspect these people, at least, have actually read the blog.
I get asked to link my blog up with other blog sites, usually written in very poor English and displaying very poor spelling and grammar skills. If you can’t construct a proper sentence, then why would I want to link my blog to yours?
Sometimes, I am offered some really cool stuff, like the newest Apple gadget, too bad when you click the link they have sent you it seems they don’t exist?
The most disturbing and so far the least frequent,thank goodness, are the sex come- ons.
This is a PG blog so, I can’t really divulge the tags that these types of spam are laden with, but they are enough to make a Marine blush.
Here is my take on the type of spam I receive:
1.The business opportunity.
