Fun With SPAM: Most Important!!!
As a slightly popular blogger, I get a good amount of spam comments, though most is caught by the filters. The rest vary from ugly linkfests to sneaky-sly advertising. Here’s a recent favorite (note, may be some swearing):
name: step ladders
Hello, Mr. Ladders! The lowercase name is edgy. And ‘step’, your parents were unique. I like it.

Oh SHIT, stop the presses! I am appalled that any product manufactured in that country would be poorly constructed. Please, tell me more. I beg you.
they even carry fake Quality and Safety Standards marks.
My love of this fine government requires me to be angry about this.
DO NOT BUY cheap equipment like this, it is dangerous and could collapse without warning.
Collapsing with a warning is A-OK. The CPSC requirement is to put a bell on each end of the scaffolding, so you know if it’s falling.
Spammers are always so polite.
