Cohutt’s followers cherish his content

October 29, 2010

No, seriously, they do……. well,  at least one does.

If you haven’t run a blog before, you might not be aware of all the comment spammers out there.  I certainly wasn’t.

These people or bots or whatever would like to post a useless comment and leave a link to their site, often something that would teach you how to earn 1000% trading currencies, maybe procure meds without a prescription for a penny a pill and sometimes even offer a secret ancient herbal concoction for male enhancement. Not that I’m against enhancement or anything but I’m quite happy to let Akismet save me the trouble of cleaning out the comments regularly.

I make a habit to share my spam fans’ comments with Mrs cohutt when they are posted in English, as they are almost always oddly amusing.

Two examples follow, both posted under the same user name but with different and very distant foreign email domains.

This one was a reply to the artichoke post:

“Wonderful blog! I truly love how it? s easy on my eyes as well as the data are well written. I am wondering how I can be notified whenever a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your rss feed which need to do the trick! Have a nice day!”

And this one in the heirloom lettuce post:

“Greetings, this is a genuinely absorbing web blog and I have cherished studying many of the content and posts contained on the web site, keep up the outstanding work and desire to read a good deal more stimulating articles in the future.”

Cherished.      AND stimulating.

I’m truly touched.

    If I’m ever back there when you wander through, get my attention and I’ll open the gate.
