Top blog-comment spam on the Arts Talk blog

One of the blogs I help run is the Times Union’s Arts Talk blog, which gets a lot of blog-comment spam. The spam is a product of people trying to scam Google. Included with the comment is often a URL that links to some awful website, so if the comment is approved, then it appears a different web entity is linking to the awful website, thus raising its Google profile.

The thing is, the blog-comment spam is just so nice and positive and reassuring — though it often has nothing to do with the content of the post to which it is allegedly commenting on. I never approve these comments, but I like sharing them. Here’s the best comment of the week:

“I’m impressed, I have to say. Really rarely do I encounter a weblog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me inform you, you may have hit the nail on the head. Your thought is outstanding; the difficulty is something that not enough individuals are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I stumbled throughout this in my seek for one thing relating to this.”
