A spam attempt gem

by Stubborn Mule on 14 May 2010 · 3 comments

I have been getting a few very enjoyable spam attempts on the blog of late. While the filter captures the usual Russian porn dross, from time to time comments slip through the filter and it falls to me to moderate them. This little gem appeared on a two year old post about wandering the streets of Newtown with my (then) five year-old son looking at the annual “Art on the Streets” displays in shop windows.

Gratitude for posting this posting. I’m decidedly frustrated with struggling to researching out pertinent and intelligent commentary on this issue. Everybody today goes to the very far extremes to either drive household their viewpoint that possibly: everyone else in the planet is wrong, or two that everyone but them does not really understand the situation. Many regards for your concise, pertinent insight.

Touched though I may be to have my insights described as concise (rarely) and pertinent (perhaps), this comment is going into the spam bucket. I will not be giving this particular spammer any free traffic to their website.

I particularly like the oh-so-close “drive household”. To “drive [something] home” is, I assume, a fairly Anglocentric phrase – so whatever multi-layer translation is required to end up with “drive household” is an outstanding result!

Mark: that is a lovely little turn of phrase. While not as bizarre, I am also rather pleased with the repeated use of “pertinent”.
