Checked my emails — I have 49 spams. And I just cleaned it out the other day!
I have written blogs before on this ongoing phenomenon — just for fun, if you have time, go check out Comments 101, 1/5/14, comments having nothing to do with my blog; Enjoying My Back Yard?, 1/5/16, conversations in my spam; or No Phishing for You!, 1/17/16, good reminders about phishing scams.
All deal with the nonsense that’s going on behind our backs.
We all love when people comment on our blogs. It’s good for our psyche, good for our souls. Especially because most readers don’t comment.
So some slicksters take to making positive comments that sound like a complement, yet trick you into clicking onto a link that takes you God Knows Where.
Now, I always look in my SPAM before I delete them all just in case, by chance, someone who’s name looks familiar and legitimate was picked up by the SPAM police by mistake.
But that doesn’t happen very often. Trust me.
This batch of kudos surrounded my Sunday Evening Art Gallery posting for Craig Haupt, a fun and creative artist. But I posted him on Sep 20, 2015. And am getting lots of comments about the post today. 2021.
Here are a few very recent comments about his art:
Everything is very open with a very clear clarification of the issues. It was really informative. Your website is very helpful. Many thanks for sharing!
You’ve made some decent points there. I looked on the net for more information about the issue and found most people will go along with your views on this site.
Oh my goodness! Incredible article dude! Thank you, However I am encountering issues with your RSS.
An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I do believe that you ought to publish more on this issue, it might not be a taboo subject but typically people don’t talk about these issues. To the next! All the best!
I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that too few people are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I stumbled across this during my hunt for something regarding this.
How reassuring that I am so “spot on.”
But do you see how close these come to being real comments? Nothing about a specific topic, artist, or thought. General positive comments that want you to respond to them in your blog so they can get inside and wreak havoc on whatever they can get their spammie grubbies on.
Check your spam now and then just in case a friend sent you a message. Just remember every responder is not your friend. then
