Seems I've been doing a lot of these as of late, but I can't resist when I've got comedy gold like this.
So today's spammer is brought to you by "questionable hobbies."
Try to make all of the poles identical and that one oddball so odd that there is NO WAY I can mistake it in the dark for a regular pole.
So you go pole spotting in the dark? Whatever floats your boat. If that's your hobby, though, wouldn't making all the poles identical make it a really boring hobby? Or is it just that you want your favorite pole to really stand out?
Today's spammer is brought to you by "unintentional hilarity."
These deppresants are wrongly sometimes writtenabated to as travelers? diarrhea.
This is one of the few spam attempts that has actually made me laugh. Use machine translators responsibly, children.
Got a couple real gems for you today. The first one is brought to you by "monkeys on typewriters."
I did a search on the topic and found the majority of persons will have the same opinion with your blog.
This on one of my past spammer posts. Because when you churn out enough I this crap, you'll accidentally be on topic eventually. I'm sure most bloggers would agree that spammers are annoying. Your URL still pegs you as a spammer, though. NEXT!
Next up, we have a little nugget brought to you by "inappropriate metaphors."
Then the biggest and most expensive game of chess seen, a two legged semi final to decide who will be at Wembley for the European Cup Final 2011.
I've heard soccer (or football as it's known across the pond) called many things, but chess? Don't even get me started on the ridiculous wording. Oh, and the 2011 final was May of last year. Way to stay up to date with your spam.
Three hundred and seven rejected spammers and counting.
That's how many spammer approval attempts I've rejected. I like to think of it as my "stupid people census." Keep proving me right. I enjoy frustrating spammers.
So by this point if you are or were a Netflix subscriber, you've probably heard about the impending split. It seems a preemptive strike is being made to cut the disc-by-mail business off the main body so it can be easily removed when it does die off. The problem with this is that I don't think it's going to die off any time soon.
Before I go any further, let me say that I am not a current Netflix subscriber. It was no fault of Netflix that I cancelled. There just weren't enough good new movies to justify the expense, and their streaming service simply didn't have enough content (again, more the fault of greedy content owners than Netflix). These new moves certainly aren't going to bring former subscribers like me back, so I'm not entirely sure what is telling them it's a good idea.
Even more bewildering is the fact that they're doing this such a short time after splitting their plans into streaming and disc-only options. If I were running Netflix, I would want to give that decision some time to simmer to see how the subscriber numbers settle. Sure, Netflix's streaming numbers were strong before the plan split. The selection wasn't great, but it was bundled with the plan, so why not?
I know a lot of people signed up for the streaming only option. Maybe enough to convince Netflix that it would be viable to go it solo on that base. I don't pretend to have the same information that they do. I don't think Qwikster is going anywhere any time soon though. Videophiles like me don't accept Netflix's heavy compression as a viable alternative to the pristine quality of blu-ray, instant gratification or no. Even cable beats out Netflix in the quality contest.
Give me 1080, quality compression, and a selection of decently new stuff and I might consider it. I know a large portion of the problem lies with content owners, so I hope for Netflix's sake they've got something big lined up.
My blog uses admin comment approval. So I have to approve one of your comments before you can post anything. Thus, you will never be able to post anything here. That won't be changing. Ever. Those of you that keep trying despite this are just stupid. I do miss the machine translated/engrish fake post approval attempts though. At least those were amusing.
Thank you, thank you
Your very welcome. It's nice to be appreciated. If you're going to attempt spamming my blog, it's important to be polite about it.
I congratulate, it seems remarkable idea to me is
Hopefully the sudden stop was caused by a realization of how shallow and lonely a life a spammer leads.
Seriously? What could possibly convince me to approve a random comment asking for help identifying random files suspected to be viruses (to which I would reply by telling you you're an idiot) sandwiched between lines of text reading "iphone 4 unlock" and variants thereof. Not everyone is as stupid as you are. Not many, sadly, but not everyone.
I dropped into the local Firehouse Subs today for lunch and discovered an interesting contraption in place of the traditional soda fountain. It was a tall and skinny machine with a single tap and a large touchscreen display on the front. A sign above it proclaimed it offered more than 100 different varieties of Coca-Cola product. Sure enough, when I went to select the basic "Coca-Cola" I was presented with no less than eight options. Regular coke, vanilla, lime, raspberry, cherry, cherry vanilla, orange, and lemon. I stood there for a second dumbfounded by the vast array of options at my disposal. I eventually selected Coke with lime, as I'm partial to that flavor and it's nearly impossible to find locally. If this is the future of fountain drinks, I'm all over it.
My intrigue with the machine didn't end there. Being a geek, I had to find out more about it. It turns out the machine is called the "Freestyle." It's an appropriate name with a little bit of marketing flair. The technology behind it uses a system developed for precisely measuring liquid medicines in the medical industry. Instead of the giant five gallon boxes of syrup that traditional fountains use, it has 46 ounce, RFID-enabled cartridges. The machine is also internet connected so it can tell Coke information about sales and presumably keep track of supplies for shipping restocking orders.
