Spam

I love spam, especially the kind that sneaks past the filter and waits for me to make the decision.  During NaPoWriMo I save them and use them for my last poem of the month, and it occurred to me that I can have fun with them here, too.  So, as I get interesting spam I’ll update this page.

Thank you, I have recently been searching for info approximately this topic
for ages and yours is the best I have came upon so far. But, what concerning the conclusion? Are you sure about the supply?

Yes, indeed.  What concerning the conclusion?  Ending scenes can be hard to write — and it can be even harder to say goodbye to characters who have been part of you life for months — or more.

And as for the supply, oh, yes.  I am sure about the supply.  If you could see my plot bunny bag — stuffed full of paper with story starts and ideas — you would not be at all concerned about the supply.  Not to mention the number of works in progress that I have going.

It’s going to be finish of mine day, however before end I am reading this enormous paragraph to improve my experience.

I just have to wonder what experience was being improved? Or was the poster increasing his or her experience.  (Can you gain Experience Points from reading blogs?)  At any rate, I am glad that experience was gained, although I’d also like to know which enormous paragraph it was gained from.  After all, I could use some experience too.

May 27, 2013I haven’t dived into the Spam folder for a few days so thought I’d take the plunge.  Apparently I’m developing quite a following in Houston: two locksmiths and a landscaper have found my blog.  LOL

Let’s see what they have to say:

Locksmith #1:
Howdy this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering
if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

Hmmm… It’s pretty much WYSIWYG which frustrates me because I can probably set up a link faster with html than I can their link editor.  (Which is really easy to use, but I’m used to doing it myself on message boards, so it’s kind of annoying.)  But the question remains: why is a locksmith in Houston TX asking a fantasy writer in Pennsylvania to unlock the mysteries of blogging?

Okay, on to Locksmith#2, also supposedly from Houston, although the post doesn’t say much about their school system:
Hi, i believe that i saw you visited my site so i came to go back the desire?
.I’m trying to in finding issues to enhance my site!I assume its ok to use a few of your concepts!!

I’m not quite sure what s/he is asking, and I don’t recall ever visiting a locksmith site in Houston, but… feel free to use the concepts in the concepts  in the Plot Bunny Orphanage — that’s what they’re there for.

And now for the landscaper in Houston:
Just desire to say your article is as astounding.
The clarity in your post is just great and i could assume you’re an expert on this subject. Well with your permission allow me to grab your feed to keep up to date with forthcoming post. Thanks a million and please keep up the gratifying work.

Interestingly, this post and both of the ones from the landscaper were comments on the Useful Links page.   So apparently I’m an expert at posting links. That is… gratifying. I’m not sure how it would look on a resume, though.  I may have to keep this post as proof of my expertise.

And from a tree service in Amsterdam:
Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. However imagine if you added some great
visuals or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this website could definitely be one of the very best in
its field. Awesome blog!

It’s nice to know that I’m just a few images shy of being one of the very best.  I might just have to grab my camera and take some pictures.  But wait… this is a blog about writing… I suppose I could photograph some pens or something? Maybe scan a page of my hand-written outline or notes?

And my personal favorite of this batch, posted in response to “Valium, Valium, Who’s Got the Valium?” is this one:
I go to see daily some sites and sites to read content,
but this web site presents quality based content.

I think I’d be more thrilled if it wasn’t from someone trying to sell me Viagra…
