Spam



Blogger is pretty good at blocking spam. Almost all of the garbage automatically goes into the spam folder. If I ignore it, it's eventually deleted. Sometimes I'll look at it because sometimes they put legitimate messages in the spam folder. Today, I found this:

My wife and i have been very more than happy when Raymond managed to conclude his homework through the entire ideas he received out of the web page. It is now and again perplexing to simply choose to be giving out tactics that many most people might have been selling. We really recognize we have you to thank for this. All the explanations you have made, the simple site navigation, the relationships your site make it possible to instill - it is most impressive, and it's really making our son and our family consider that that concept is interesting, and that is pretty pressing. Many thanks for all!

I don't get it. What are they trying to sell? Most spam lets you know right away why it's spam. This is obviously spam since it has absolutely nothing to do with anything on this blog, but what is the point? What does the spammer have to gain here? Clearly, it was written by someone who does not speak English or, even worse, by Google translate, but how do messages like this benefit anyone in any way? What if I saved it from the spam folder and let it post. What good would it do the spammer? Now that I've posted it where people might read it, what good does it do them?

I don't understand spam.

No hate, please. There's enough of that in the world already.
