Can't Put the Pen Down…

Commentary on Spam – Seriously?


I moderate comments to my blog and even though the filter informs me it’s deterred over a thousand spam messages, I still have a few to look at each day in the spam file. I have just one question…who in their right mind would allow a spam message, like the one I’ve included below, onto their page?

“Greatest fighter toasts ought to entertain on your couples.”

Thank you, my couples do not need anyone to entertain on them, certainly not fighters, great or otherwise.

I have pondered this for a long time and I can only conclude that these spam comments are the detritus generated by the proverbial ‘infinite number of monkeys sitting at an infinite number of typewriters’ before they managed to type out the complete works of Shakespeare.

Greatest fighter toasts? Seriously?

    I have also pondered this random, apparent mishmash of words but from the anagramming viewpoint and have found that you can rearrange the letters to make:

    Greatest fighter toasts ought to entertain on your couples
    =
    Poetry constitutes the true language of song. It’s the orator.

    Eureka! Not SPAM at all but a coded meaningful insight. No, don’t thank me, I am only too pleased to have helped. 😉

    • I Love That!! Tony, you’re a genius! You have taken useless drivel and turned it into a gem! I never thought of using spam as a starting point for anagramming, but what a neat idea! I’m going to have to try that!
