We all get plenty of Spam comments and emails by virtue of being bloggers. On an average day, I get notified of around twelve Spam comments by WordPress Admin, and they tuck them away in the Spam folder for me to conveniently delete. I have a habit of checking them prior to deletion though, as they are sometimes just comments from readers and followers, that have slipped into that folder by mistake.
Over the last few months, I have been getting a clutch of nonsensical comments, supposedly sent by someone called Jack. I could get five or six of these a day, and I decided to save one as a word document, determined to email this person, and ask why they bombard me with gobbledygook. Then I noticed that the next few ‘Jack’ comments had different email addresses. Here is a small selection, so you can see what I am on about.
Some of the content is undoubtedly religious, and the grammar and construction lead me to suspect it may well be machine-generated.
You imply lіke when wе siung reward songs in Chuгch??
Larry requested and daԀdy nodded. ?Well I can make up a worship song.?
So Larｒy jumped to hіs toes and commenced to make up a song to
a very bad tune. ?Jesus is so cool. Its fun being with God.
Hes the funnst Ԍod anybody mаy have.? Larry sang νery badly so Lee haad
put his hands over his ears.
Mｙ turn, my turn.? Larry mentioned eagerly wigɡling to get a chance to
talk. ?I believe the most effective thing about God is that he can beat
uρ the satan as a rеѕult of the devil is frightening and imply and uglʏ and unhelthy
and God can beat һim up so tthe satan can?t hаrm uss like
he did those demon fіlled individuals in Jesus day.
ᎳE WILL.? They both shouted they usuaⅼly ran to the
bedroom bickering about who gets tօ ɡo first.
Effectively, what ɗoess God like?? Leee added.
?I imply, ᴡe like cooкies and casгtoons and toys, but what sort օf
things are enjoyable for GoԀ?? It wass a query that for a minute Mommy and Daddy haɗ
to asѕume about.
As you can see, they are all using the Linux operating system, each comment comes from a different email address, and the IP addresses are all different too. So I wonder what Magda Holmes, Santo Scanlon, Maria Mellor, and Nicholas Hodgson are up to with this claptrap? I doubt they are real people anyway. I have never opened any link, replied to the email addresses, or allowed any of these comments to become valid.
But I have to confess that it doesn’t only annoy me, it intrigues me too.
