I was very proud of myself when I started receiving tons of comments for my math blog. Many of the comments were quite flattering. For example:
You are getting better and better. Congrats, dude.
I know that in English you can sometimes replace “ladies” with “guys”, but I wasn’t sure if being called a dude constitutes a compliment.
I got suspicious, however, when I received this:
Get real! It is interesting, but you never give proofs.
This comment was placed on my Fibonacci entry, where I think I gave more than enough proofs. So I read all the small print that accompanied the comment. It appears that “sexy-girls-in-chains” were extremely excited about the divisibility of Fibonacci numbers.
I am used to my everyday winnings of Millions of Dollars in the UK lottery, but this was something new and different. They caught me off-guard. Here I was, so proud of the public’s positive reactions, only to realize that it was some automated program. Some computer sending spam caused me to have strong emotions. I was upset that I was caught. Sigh.
What can I do? Just laugh. We can laugh together at “girls-deflowered” who were interested in Quantifying Favors, at “is-your-penis-small” who commented on Losing the Lottery, at “squirting-vibrating-realistic-anal-dildo” who was impressed with my Fantasy Future and at “teenage-girls” who associated themselves with Numbers Needing Sponsors.
One of the latest comments was:
We can professionally say that this information is objective and true and of highest quality.
It was signed by “pissing-ladies.” Am I proud or what?Share:
You’re using WordPress. If you have it on your own host, I recommend you make use of the Akismet plugin. It’s a rare day that it lets spam through.
Also, I strongly encourage you to install the plugin that notifies viewers like me whenever a new comment is posted on a *particular* blog post – so that I can tell if someone is replying to my comments, for example. I can look up the name of that plugin if you want.8 June 2008, 8:47 pm
Thank you. Akismet works.
I tried to install other plugins, but they seem to make my site much slower.23 June 2008, 2:05 pm
