Hiya I'm fresh here

There are two kinds of comments: spam and other. I get more of the former, unfortunately, but thankfully spend next to no time on moderation.

Mostly the spam is lots of URLs for sites that make money somehow (shoes and pr0n), but lately I have been getting a lot of comments just saying hi. There's no link to any website, and the comments aren't at all inflammatory, but... they also say nothing of value or on topic, and they keep coming back.

Check this:

The funny thing is that all these messages are clearly from the same user, since the wording is too close not to be. But, none of the comments are identical, just very similar.


What the hell is the point? The only possible answer I have is that they are submitted to see if there is a spam filter in place, and if I'll publish them. But to what use?


  1. The only thing I can think of is that it is some kind of automated thing that is supposed to have a URL associated with it, but for whatever technical reason, the layout of your blog messes it up. However, your comment form is cookie-cutter Blogger, so I don't know what would mess up the automated tool...

  2. Hi,

    I am new here, and .....

    I get them a lot and the "spam" about them is the URL the user comes from, check that, or better check that not!

    Cheers Arend
