Courteous Spammer

Rob Hof

Just got a comment from somebody whose mother must be proud, so I have to share it with you. It reads:

Three phrases should be among the most common in our daily usage. They are: Thank you, I am grateful and I appreciate.

Aw, how sweet.

So why did I delete it? Because of the guy's URL. Yeah. A site on penis enlargement.

Hey, we got the very same polite blogger on blogspotting. I guess he's making the rounds. Too bad you can't do blog search on comments, as least as far as I know. If we had that, we could track his (and I'm assuming it's a he...) growth and movements.

How can all these guys lie to us? Who is this Mailer Daemon guy, who comes up convienantly when you reply using words like "truth" "ethics" "legal" ad infinitum., with something called a failure notice?? I thought I would experament and see if maybe one out of a hundred would actually keep thier promises.. thier "bait" so to speak. Is there any recourse besides just blocking them? would appreciate an e-mail.
