So I pay next to no attention to them, other than a quick glance to mark them as spam. I do find the composition of this spam of some interest. It seems to fall into two categories. First is plain old fashioned gibberish, which provides the outcome you’d expect from letting your cat walk across your keyboard a couple of times. Or not having a cat, borrowing one or renting one for the purpose.
The second type leads with flattery, such as: “Wow! I am so glad I found your blog. It’s the best one I’ve ever seen.” (I’m thinking at this point: I am sorry to hear that…) Then it degrades into nonsense, such as : “I will tell all my friends on planet Zircon all about it”. (I wouldn’t do that if I were you. They may not stay your friends for very long.)
Today one of this second type arrived over the electronic transom. It ended with these words, which express my wish for all my readers, Zirconian or Earthling: “Possess a Nice Day”.
