this is maybe same guy who is currently spamming wordpress.com blogs. total scumbag.

That is awesome. I wonder how many use that same template.

eddwo commented

I log on to your blog like every week. Your humoristic style is witty, keep up the good work.
I simply could not depart your site prior to suggesting that I extremely loved the usual info
an individual supply to your guests.

Had the same thing show up in email spam.

Los **A**ngeles isn't a state, he can't even be consistent.

eddwo commented

These are in fact impressive ideas in concerning blogging.
You have touched some pleasant factors here. Any way keep up wrinting.

eddwo commented

Couldn't resist giving this whirl. http://gist.github.com/eddwo/5423102

awesome ^^

7 is worrying. Who'd want their snatch grabbed by them?

@harder Just google scrapebox spun comments to find a lot more and see how popular this thing is.

These are much harder to block then regular spam. It actually force me to read it before i approve or reject comments.

Way to mindless bandwagon-hate on anything that gets labeled as spam, guys.

Why bother blocking these at all? This sort of spam (platitudes) does nothing but make the writer of the blog feel better about him or herself (provided he or she is ignorant of the fact it's template-generated). Sure for the 1% of super popular blogs out there this might be unnecessary, but in a world filled with bloggers blogging blogs most people never read, the fake recognition and pleasantry might be just what these writers need.

I used to do comment spam and this is not the most advanced one. There are many tools that grabs article title, author name, url and other information from the target blog and post it in the comment to make it more trustworthy.
I have seen similar comments to slip through on the major blogs around the web and even ones with high level of moderation.

Here's a quick script that spins the text:

gem install spintax_parser

ruby -rspintax_parser -ropen-uri -e 'String.send(:include, SpintaxParser); puts open("https://bit.ly/Ziv9Aw").read.gsub("\n", " ").unspin'

@foxnewsnetwork - the problem is it's not "just platitudes", it's (99% of the time, unless the spammer foolishly picks a site that doesn't allow URLs) platitudes plus a link to a spam / malware site. Basically, a black-hat form of SEO.

It looks like this factors out to 4,351,250,624 unique comments.

What saddens me most is that someone purposely spent their time creating that. That they tweaked it until they were proud of it. That for one day of their life it was the reason they woke up. Time they'll never get back.

Great, I'll use it as Lorem Ipsum for comments section.

@al2o3cr but if it links to a site, then those are super easy to block since you can just block hyperlinks. Like, if someone posts on your blog "Hey, loved your post, great read. Check out my porn site at [url]" the part that's actually spam is just the [url] part (which luckily is very easy to block). Blocking the "Hey, loved your post, great read" part is just throwing the baby out with the bath water.

I've been browsing online more than three hours today but never discovered any fascinating article like yours. It's lovely value enough for me. Personally if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the web might be a lot more useful than ever before.

CanOfSpam: A PHP implementation to get random spam text.

It randomly picks a comment, and randomly picks optional text in the { } tags.

@foxnewsnetwork : As an analogy then, would it be ok for me to use a gluestick to place coupons on your car and your front door and your computer and your clothes and everything else I can get my hands on?

I mean, it's very easy to pull those glued coupons off, and I'd be very pleasantly fake while giving your stuff the attention. I mean, why throw out the baby with the bath water?

Oh, wait. Some of those coupons might have ricin or ebola on them. Don't worry about it, I'm sure you can just block them.

Turn this into a RegExp, and we have ourselves a spam blocker, my friends!

eddwo commented

No one bothers to comment spam without including a URL, (unless their script is broken like this one was)
so if the URL isn't part of the message itself, then it's probably included in the form submission,
intended to be linked via the commenter's name.
However cheerful these comments may appear on the surface, they are so content-free and malformed that
any blog, no matter how deserted, is probably better off without them.

@foxnewsnetwork : Actually that baby needs to be drowned before throwing it out of the water.

Yup, Spambots are failing hard on my blog too: http://pastebin.com/m8EgQpKk

Also, here is another non-parsed masterpiece: https://gist.github.com/TacticalCode/5455825 (on pastebin: http://pastebin.com/DJAjytyF)
This spammer blew all his spam load on my blog at once :'(

That's not even a complete version, I suspect it got cut off somewhere.

Lorelle on WordPress posted about one of these a while back and I got her to send me a copy. It's identical to the one you posted at the beginning, but this copy appears to be a bit longer. Here it is:

https://gist.github.com/Otto42/5467402

Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is fantastic blog. An excellent read. I'll definitely be back.

Miyagawa produced a nice succinct Perl version: https://gist.github.com/miyagawa/5455942

Here is my stab at a version in Rebol: https://gist.github.com/draegtun/5465881

NB. Unfortunately Rebol syntax highlighting on Gist is a bit odd :( (Github are looking into it). So for now here's the RAW version: https://gist.github.com/draegtun/5465881/raw/a771410c1bbccfc7ad80427bc5f23e18a36e4649/spam-comment.r2

Googling around, I found this marvellous example - http://www.idaschmidt.dk/blog/2009/11/website-update/ That must be some post ("I've just updated my website with some new pictures...") to generate (see what I did there?) 6030 comments to date.

I just spotted a loooong spam at Mightygodking's site, with around 200 lines:

https://gist.github.com/pronoiac/5597420

A partial list of same spam comment came to my blog as well!
