Entertainment value of spam

Much spam starts off with some horrible misspelling of a word, so that it won’t be an exact duplicate of every other time they post the same thing. But it does have entertainment value, I think, which is enhanced by the misspelling.

Can I just say what a aid to find somebody who actually knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You undoubtedly know how you can convey an issue to gentle and make it important. Extra folks need to learn this and understand this aspect of the story. I cant imagine youre not more standard since you undoubtedly have the gift.

Um, yup, I always strive to be a aid to those extra folks. Maybe someday this can help me to become more standard.

I simply nedeed to thank you so much once more. I am not sure the things I would’ve undertaken in the absence of those hints discussed by you regarding this industry. It had been a frightful issue for me, nevertheless coming across your specialised tactic you managed the issue forced me to weep for contentment. Extremely thankful for your service and as well , believe you know what a powerful job your are doing teaching the others with the aid of your web site. More than likely you haven’t come across any of us.

Wow, I feel honored. Though it is a major goal of most writers, so few of them succeed in forcing their readers to weep for contentment.

And the wonderful positive critiques continue:

I rlealy appreciate free, succinct, reliable data like this.

You Sir/Madam are the enemy of cofnsuion everywhere!

Pin my tail and call me a donkey, that rlaely helped.

Normally I’m against kliling but this article slaughtered my ignorance.

It has been a while

Hi, folks, it’s been a while. Actually, about a year.

I have just been cleaning out my RSS reader. I had sorted the various feeds into folders, and there are some feeds in one folder that I actually still read, and many feeds in other folders that I haven’t read in a long time. I decided it was time to go through them all to see what was there.

My RSS reader allows one to “star” certain blog entries as being especially noteworthy. I thought that it might be interesting now to look back over these specially tagged entries and see what things had captured my interest back through the years. But I found that in the olden days, I would often “star” something that looked interesting but that I didn’t want to take the time to read at the moment. Of course, doing this over time resulted in an increasing backlog of “starred” items to read “someday.” And for a while, that is very much what happened. Finally about three years ago it seems that I came to my senses and “starred” items in a more reasonable fashion.

In order to clear out the blogs from my RSS reader that I didn’t read anymore, I decided that I would save links to any “starred” items that seemed worthy and then unsubscribe from all the blogs that I no longer read.

More than half of the blogs that I no longer read were left unread for a good reason: they were not being updated! Some of them hadn’t been updated in two or three years. So, following my plan, I looked for the “starred” items in order to save links to them. Quite a few of the “starred” items did not exist any longer. Some of their domains were gone entirely. A few of the blogs had moved to different domains, but since I hadn’t been reading them anymore, I didn’t know to follow them as they moved.

I thought that at least regarding writing frequency, I’m doing better than some of the blogs that I had once considered my favorites. After all, it’s been “only” a year since I’ve written, and I still have the same domain as I’ve had for the past ten years or so (though its content has varied drastically through the years).
