In Which I Manage To Disappoint By Merely Existing

I have hit a new low in blogging.

Putting aside the fact that I’ve never written a word about wind chimes until today, I think that it is fair to say that this spammer took a very dim view of one of my blog posts.  I’ve never received such a sad piece of spam before.  Most of my spam is of the “great job” variety, so the unhappiness described in this piece of spam is almost too much for me.

I feel the angst.

But here’s what confuses me: why is this piece of spam telling me about some clunky, un-melodic wind chimes?  I had nothing to do with the wind chimes.  It’s almost as if this piece of spam was written without anyone actually reading what I wrote… as if there is no correlation between my content and the spam comment… as if this spammer doesn’t care about me at all.

Oh dear!  That couldn’t be it, could it?  😉

  1. At least this is better than the abusive ones I was getting for a while there (and they seem to have started up again in the last week or so). I get loads of spam completely unrelated to anything – in fact sometimes the words are completely unrelated to one another. At least this one is coherent. It seems that spammers have just run out of pleasant, coherent things to say. Maybe this is the future of spamming…?


  2. My favorite spam comment lately: Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam comments? If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can recommend? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any support is very much appreciated.

    Almost makes me want to publish it.


  3. Title of this post describes my life just now, but tomorrow is another day, and I refuse to give up. I HAVE made a wind chime, and it even sounds pretty good. To Hell w/that spammer 🙂


  4. This is absolutely the best resource for windchime reviews on the web. Your site is my go-to for all my windchime information needs. I tell all my friends and co-workers about your windchime information, and they all want to buy me breakfast. This morning alone, 6 of my co-workers treated me to breakfast while we raved about your phenomenal windchime wisdom. Also, my husband and I wondered if you could tell us why the fog light on our Subaru keeps going out.


    • You sound like spam… & yet I know otherwise! If your current career doesn’t pan out, you could always get a job as a spam copywriter. Please feel free to use me as a reference.


    • Margaret, you get spam on what you write?!! I’m amazed. I cannot fathom why spammers would bother you. I’m sure that the spam does anger you. And rightfully so.
