The verbose spam mystery

When I logged into write a post today, I saw that I had a few comments to be moderated. Generally, comments to my blog automatically appear, but if they are on a post that was written a while ago, they're saved for my review and approval.

Most comments that are on old posts are spam. I mark them as such and forget about them. But the one awaiting me today really got me thinking. It was on the Office Bathroom Etiquette post (one of my most viewed).

This was the comment:

I give birth to read a insufficient of the articles on your website trendy, and I extremely like your fashionableness of blogging. I added it to my favorites net stage muster and last will and testament be checking stand behind soon. Please check out my position as highly and vindicate me conscious what you think. Thanks. 

Huh? I'm used to the spammers who say stuff like "Nice blog you have here. I like to read such themes and everything connected with it. By the way Viagra cheap!"

But wordy verse makes absolutely no sense. First of all, the words "trendy" and "fashionableness" are not frequently associated with me. That's when I got to thinking that maybe it was military or drug cartel secret hidden in the comment section of my blog. Like the real message is in every 5th word or something:

I give birth to read a insufficient of the articles on your website trendy, and I extremely like your fashionableness of blogging. I added it to my favorites net stage muster and last will and testament be checking stand behind soon. Please check out my position as highly and vindicate me conscious what you think. Thanks.


Well, or something like that. Or maybe the message was intended to be read backwards. "Think you what conscious me vindicate and highly as position my..." 

That's not it either.  I don't really know what it's supposed to say because of course the comment came from Anonymous. I wish I did know, though, because if I really have been added to his/her last will and testament, I'd like to be contacted at the time of his/her passing -- especially if there is lots of money or jewelry involved. 


So, Mr. or Ms. Anonymous, if you really are some wealthy benefactor who thinks my blog is trendy and full of fashionableness, please visit again soon. If you're a terrorist or mobster or some other thug, I've given your message more than its fair share of spotlight. Don't bother coming back. Your next comment won't see the light of day.


The rest of you lovely readers? Comment at will!

I think this is one of those notices from Her Highness the Princess of Wakijabara and she is trying to default her country. I'm sure if you send her your bank account info she will transfer millions of dollars that you will split when she gets to America. Since she has recently given birth, you have to forgive her new baby brain for forgetting to sign her comment.

I think they just wanted to show that by getting you to highlight some words in one post, all the previous posts would end up highlighted as well. lol

Good analysis. NASA, the CIA or some other acronym would probably be interested in your services for their encryption devision. Funny post!

Do you have any European fans? This sounds like something I'd get from a colleague in our office on the other side of the ocean. They mean well, but sometimes don't grasp how adjectives are to be used.

HA...comments like those are good for a laugh...but man, it is weird too. If you figure out the real message let us know! Oh, and if you inherit a large sum of money from the last will and testament, let us know that too! Your fashionableness!
