From a still-ongoing run of generic comment spam:
Hello, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, very good blog!
Of course, it works in IE, but not Internet Explorer.
Actually, that makes too much sense…
“We know how you can skip years of college and still geTaDegree!”
Judging by their spelling, they’ve been following their own program.
Spam subject: “This stock will explode!”
How can you be so cruel to me? I’ll have to react and destroy you.
It was in the discards folder, so I have no idea what was in the message (probably a dubious pill or “enhancement” sales pitch - these things always seem to be), but it sure makes you want to look, doesn’t it?
Not that we’ve been terribly active lately, but we disappeared from the net for a while because Tumblr deactivated our domain name. The reason: it wasn’t pointing directly to Tumblr’s servers. It was actually pointing to CloudFlare, which pointed to Tumblr, but I guess that doesn’t count.
I don’t think this blog gets enough traffic to need Cloudflare, and this is the second or third time this has happened, so I’m just going to keep things simple and remove Cloudflare from the chain for now.
So I’ve been getting generic comment spams on Speed Force today, the kind that look like someone took a bunch of compliments and a thesaurus and stuck them in a salad shooter. I started reading. I started reading this one aloud:
Thank you a lot for providing individuals with remarkably pleasant chance to discover important secrets from this web site. It is often very awesome and full of a lot of fun for me personally and my office co-workers to search the blog at a minimum 3 times in one week to find out the newest items you have got. And lastly, I am just certainly motivated concerning the splendid principles served by you. Some 1 ideas on this page are ultimately the simplest I’ve ever had.
I got about halfway through, and my wife stopped me, saying, “What, you got a comment from Faz?”
PLEASE TRY TO UNDERSTAND ME
Now that’s a desperate cry for help if I’ve ever heard one.
FBI OFFICE GET BACK TO US IMMEDIATELY IF YOU DONT WANT US TO ARREST YOU
Somehow I don’t think the FBI would be emailing me from an AOL.com address.
“She will be amazed by your new power”
But that’s still not a good reason to hang around radioactive spiders, gamma bomb test sites, or stand by the window of the chem lab during a lightning storm.
