I’ve read about this type of spam on a couple of blogs, but only now I’ve started receiving them as well. So if you’re getting these comments, don’t let them spin your head – they may be flattering but they’re only coming from annoying spammers. And thanks to Akismet, they’re correctly identified as a spam.

I like the way you set up that your info is the homepage, nicely done. Thanks!

Just take a look at those email addresses and names. I wish I could spam them back, but those emails most probably don’t even exist. What do they accomplish by sending this spam? And those comments are so pathetic. Oh, no, please, don’t recommend my site to other spammers you know.

I wonder whether there will come a day when spammers realize that everybody hates them and that their spamming techniques don’t work or would we always be victims of their infuriating spam?
