I Have To Admit, It’s Getting Better…


… the spam comments I receive on this blog, that is.


Some days, it feels like the only people who even bother reading this are my mother (hello, MOM) and the spam commenters who leave stuff on my blog like :



and like :



come to think about it, I’ve actually gotten a total of FOUR spam comments from dudes explaining, in the exact same words, why they’re “Boycotting American Women!” I mean…gosh!  Are they commenting on all y’all’s blogs, too? Or is it just me, just lucky me, the exemplary example of the kind of “American Woman” they’re boycotting? Did I, and my comedy writing, inspire four men to take the red pill and give up American women for good? I feel two kinda ways about that:


  1. Awesome. I have a powerful effect on shitty men. and —
  2. American Women: I have driven them away. I. Me. Myself. You’re welcome.


But after deleting those comments from my spam folder, I started seeing a new kind of spam. Like the springtime thawing the harsh winter, or the beautiful butterfly emerging from it’s gross caterpillar spit cocoon (that’s caterpillar spit, right? Fact check me, science).


Spam like this:

Blush, blush! Me, famous? I’ll take “pleasant articles” — Thank you!


and THIS:


I mean, this is so OBVIOUSLY spam, but at the same time, it’s so gentle! And complimentary! If I were to compile my blogs into a book, I would absolutely use this blurb on the front cover: “genuinely pleasant funny stuff.” Woweee! That’s a stellar review! High praise!


You know, it could be worse.

    • Oooooh that’s a CLASSIC! I loved that album when I was a preteen. I was a weird kid. Maybe these men are RIGHT to stay away…gotta get away, gotta get away now GO GO GO!!!

  1. I got that same influx of Russian mail-order bride/FUCK AMERICAN WOMEN spam!! Not on this journal, but my professional tutoring/editing blog. I thought it was because I had actually used Russian in a recent post (I mentioned the Russian animated adaptation of Winnie the Pooh), but it wasn’t even on that post! I guess someone paid for “advertising” and WordPress blogs were targeted?

    • That’s really interesting to know! I thought maybe I was targeted because I talk about feminism a lot, and because of all those BUST articles. People have found my blog through BUST before, so it wouldn’t surprise me being targeted for THAT. Nice to know it’s just random idiots, though, that makes it seem a lot less personal and directed at ME. Sorry you had to put up with it though!

    • If you ask me, the problem with America is the men who insist on boycotting American women. It’s almost as if they want women to be repressed, second-class citizens….and yet they’ll use the “Other cultures oppress women!” argument as an excuse to bomb the shit out of them…hmmm…are these white marbles? Because I think I see some Hungry Hungry Hippocrites!!!
