Thanks for the meal

Welcome to the first 2022 spam comment round up. This is where I take a moment to peer into the comments folder to examine the treasures held within in order to reveal to you things I never knew, about myself, this site and spam.

For example, I have all sorts of ambitions, I know a few things, but never, ever will I consider it a goal to express interest in, or become an expert in gambling. Or sport, or the unholy combination of the two. Nope. I’m not your chum, spam commenter. There is no ‘as well’.

Our goal is to be an authority on all things sports betting as well.

Spam commenter.

However, there are some uninvited comments I can accept (before happily deleting forever) and perhaps readers can go along with my views:

You made some really good 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 come on. Again. No one needs or wants this. No one.

Sports betting is the activity of predicting sports benefits and placing a wager on the outcome.

Then there are times a spammer feigns actually perusing and digesting my blog on *reads notes* topics, instead of just leaving unrelated comments, like litter scattered on an empty beach. At least this litter is in praise of my genuine thoughts:

You are so cool! I do not suppose I’ve truly read through a single thing like this before. So wonderful to discover another person with a few genuine thoughts on this topic. Seriously.. thank you for starting this up. This website is something that is required on the web, someone with a bit of originality!

Spammer in the works

No. I will reiterate this. I loathe the proliferation of sports betting across all media.

When the complete slate is in the books, you will see odds for pretty much all of the games.


I write because I am happy to share. If people learn things that’s great, if spammers are similarly impressed, and are compelled to tell me about comparing things I write to articles elsewhere, I guess that’s a thing, too:

Good post. I learn something new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon everyday. It’s always useful to read through articles from other authors and practice something from other sites.

Spam Esq

I believe the below comment was made recently upon a review of an X File episode written a couple of years ago. Even if I had written an intriguing post, I think I’ve missed the boat on writing more upon this subject. To the next indeed.

An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I do believe that you need to write more on this subject matter, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people don’t discuss these subjects. To the next! Many thanks!!

The spam

Um. I’m Alice in Wonderland because I think I’ve stumbled upon a topsy turvy world pattern here. Vaguely worded praise about a non-specific topic left as a comment on an old blog post. Thank you for your own meme-like originality. Once, I was cool. Now, I am interesting.

You are so interesting! I do not think I’ve read a single thing like that before. So wonderful to find another person with a few unique thoughts on this subject matter. Seriously… many thanks for starting this up. This site is something that’s needed on the web, someone with some originality!

Spam creator

How is a writing desk like a raven? In the same way a blog post gets someone else a good meal. I suspect. I’d never considered it until I read this true tale related directly to me an old post about, again, you guessed it the X Files, which seems appropriate:

An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a colleague who has been doing a little homework on this. And he in fact bought me breakfast because I found it for him… lol. So let me reword this…. Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending the time to discuss this issue here on your website.

Spammer in the works

So there you have it. That’s what the spam has been telling me. It’s like reading tea leaves, without tea, leaves, or any ability to see into the future, or the past, or reality. Anyway, thank you for spending the time to read about the issues here on this website. Oops. Now my own comments read as a little spammy.
