Top 10 Dumbest Blog Comments

13 February 2010 5 Comments

Do you own a blog? One of the most rewarding aspects of a blog is the relationships you can develop with readers via their comments. At scribblescratch I even allow dofollow comments to encourage this participation from my readers. Obviously I moderate all comments first which brings me back to the point of the article.

Whilst moderating these comments I have noticed trends with spammers trying to get their links published on my site. Some are plain stupid, some are completely irrelevant to the site and some are copied and pasted across many sites. I think the funniest part of the following list is all of these comments have been collected from my site within the last 14 days only. I am sure many of you have had similar experiences and I expect some more classic comments added in my own comment section below (don’t worry I will approve these ones).

So here are the top 10 Dumbest Blog Comments:

1. Huh?

Does this type of comment ever work? I doubt any moderator would even publish it, but say if it does get published, who will click on the link? And if they click on the link they get taken to a site that doesn’t exist. So whats the point?

2. Do what I say

Most advertisers ask politely for business but not this commenter. Reminds me of Arnold Schwarzenegger. I keep thinking the last line will read “watch it or I will blow your brains out”.

Watch this video online or download it:

Enjoy it.

3. Flattery will get you everything

Except a comment on my blog. I particularly like the tangent the commenter takes that leads to nowhere. Perhaps a legitimate comment that just sounds like spam?

Hi – really good website you have made. I enjoyed reading this posting. I did want to publish a comment to tell you that the design of this site is very aesthetically pleasing. I used to be a graphic designer, now I am a copy editor for a marketing firm. I have always enjoyed working with computing machines and am attempting to learn computer code in my free time (which there is never enough of lol).

4. Huh? Oh the shotgun approach.

Similar to the first comment this one doesn’t follow a whole lot of logic. I think this is my favorite comment with the keyword stuffing of 4 different opportunities mixed with letters, numbers and characters (like a good password).

5. Specific Flattery

Perhaps the commenter has a better chance of their link being published if they add links to my own blog several times. Completely unnecessary as I would have approved the comment based on the sage advice they provide “There is not much to state except the following universal truth: Stuff happens, then more stuff happens. Stuff will continue to happen until stuff stops happening.”

I am to a great extent impressed with the article I have just read. I wish the author of http://www.scribblescratch.com can continue to provide so much worthwhile information and unforgettable experience to http://www.scribblescratch.com readers. There is not much to state except the following universal truth: Stuff happens, then more stuff happens. Stuff will continue to happen until stuff stops happening. I will be back.

6. Everyone likes list

Keyword stuffing in comments don’t work as you can see above. But perhaps if I create a nice looking list of completely unrelated and inappropriate keywords my comment will be approved. Kudos for the formatting and the effort of adding every type of spam related content available; adult, ringtones, downloads, cracks, wallpapers and mobiles (all in one list!).

Hi,
Today I found a good site. It is on the network by the following keys:
lotr ringtones
garmin mobile blackberry megaupload
free sex mobile horse
ring women video
wwe ring announcer
seeyou mobile 3 1 crack
health conditions due to cell phones
lesbian clips mobile
text message alert tones
free shyla stylez mp4 mobile porn
army airborne cell wallpaper
sexarabe mobile
Hope, it will help you too.

7. Social Butterfly

Oh so you have bookmarked and told your friends. I think there should be some sort of remuneration for such a loyal reader. Oh you use the name “free sex” for your comment and link to an adult website. At least you loved my webmaster related site.

It is a excellent ?nternet site.
I have bookmarked the page and I will notify my friend about it.
Thankfulness

8. No….Thankyou!

Not saying anything except what I just wrote …and that…and that…and that…you get the idea.

Nice Post Thanks.

9. I have a Question!

Looks like the commenter gets their 2 year old to mash the keyboard and then tags their website on at the end. Wish I could of been more helpful to them and answered their question though.

??5???? ?? ????????O(?_?)O??~????????? ???www.cn-clothes.com?

10. Vague is the new vogue

I think the comment subject has been discussed before, and it is an important subject we should all consider. Its funny because I was talking to another webmaster recently about the subject of the comment and this comment was exactly what I needed. Adios.

Ola, nice blog you?ve got here. I really liked reading your post. I accidentally found it this morning and thought it was interesting, so it led me to post a few words. I have a feeling there will be others who most likely share your opinion concerning this subject. So, I?ll return soon when I find extra time to view more. This is funny, but I was just calling my room mate regarding this subject, so this post was just what I needed. I will link to this website and find the rss as well. Thanks very much

On a side note what is the connection between comment spam and question marks. Looking through this list it makes me think I have been using question marks incorrectly at the end of questions when they have far more uses then that obviously. Don’t forget to add some of your best blog comments as well.
