Very few of the comments that are made on preservethe80s ever see the light of day. The vast majority of comments are either from assholes and spambots, with the spambots contributing the lion’s share. As I’m sure you remember, (actually you probably don’t, unless you happen to be one of my 5 or so regular visitors) I once wrote a post on lazy spammers in which I discussed how spammers just aren’t trying these days. Since that time, the amount of spam comments I receive has gotten even greater, with the comments being even more obvious and pathetic. Making the situation even more laughable is the fact that a good deal of the spammers now use Preservethe80s, or variants thereof in order to post the comments. I guess they think I’m just not too bright and won’t figure it out, or that I’ll be too lazy to read comments before approving them.. though they probably assume both. I suppose that rather than AI, these spambots should be labeled as AU – Artifical Unintelligence. However, a few of them are so bad that they’re actually a little bit comical, and those extra special shitpiles will get the recognition they deserve by being enshrined in the Spambot Hall of Fame.
Preservethe80s.com – “Spammers just arent trying anymore.. Keen”
“Update preserve los 80s.. Huh, really?”
“Why doesnt anyone in connecticut realize that dunkin donuts sucks.. Bully”
“Update 2.. Slap-up”
“Mcdonalds deluxe bacon angus burger gets it all wrong.. Great idea”
“Last nights gumbo didnt go so well.. Amazing” – Even by my standards, the gumbo story is a boring one.
“Is humanity a terminal illness.. Slap-up” – I’ve never heard anyone but this spambot use the expression “slap up” and I have no idea what it’s supposed to mean, but I kind of like it. I’m going to use that from now on.
XBox 360 Support – “Good one you, man! Really great stuff here.”
Auto-Ru – “Thanks, it’s usefully for me.”
Auto-Ru deserves extra recognition because in addition to making one of the weakest spam comment attempts I’ve encountered, it also has the most obvious spambot name. AUTO-Ru? Really? Please, whoever came up with that name, pull your head out of your ass.
Women Sober House – “Throughout this awesome design of things you secure an A+ for effort. Where exactly you actually confused me was in your facts. You know, it is said, details make or break the argument.. And it couldn’t be much more true here. Having said that, permit me tell you just what did deliver the results. The authoring is certainly rather engaging and that is probably the reason why I am making an effort to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, whilst I can certainly see a leaps in reason you make, I am not certain of how you seem to connect the details which in turn make the actual final result. For now I will, no doubt subscribe to your point but hope in the future you actually link your dots better.” – Keep in mind, this comment was about the 11 Ways to be an Asshole using Cheetos post.
RepeFlepe – “Surgery because colon cancer or prostate can also exhort penis devastation with an understanding of worldwide time. ”
Using QR Codes -“In this grand design of things you’ll get a B- with regard to effort and hard work. Exactly where you confused everybody was in your facts. As as the maxim goes, the devil is in the details… And that couldn’t be much more accurate in this article. Having said that, let me say to you precisely what did give good results. The authoring is certainly very powerful and that is probably the reason why I am taking an effort to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. 2nd, although I can easily notice the leaps in logic you come up with, I am not confident of just how you seem to connect your details which make your final result. For right now I shall subscribe to your point but trust in the future you actually connect the dots better.” – This one was also about the Cheetos. Apparently spambots think I’m not connecting the dots when it comes to being a bastard with cheese flavored corn-based snacks.
Swanyseen – “I learned early on, having known the most handsome, successful, Gary Cooper, Clark Gable, Robert Taylor, don’t ever spend too much time looking in the mirror.”
Making Flyers – “The crux of your writing whilst appearing reasonable at first, did not settle perfectly with me after some time. Someplace within the sentences you managed to make me a believer unfortunately just for a very short while. I still have got a problem with your jumps in logic and one might do well to fill in those gaps. In the event you actually can accomplish that, I will certainly end up being impressed.” – Cheetos again
That’s all for now, though this post will be updated as more shitty spam comments make their way to my site. Either that or I’ll create a new separate page for the Spambot Hall of Fame, but chances are I’ll be too lazy to take the 30 seconds to do that.
