What do you make of this?

As I do from time to time, I’ve just been looking at the spam folder for this blog, since occasionally genuine posts get diverted there erroneously. And then I sometimes stay to marvel at some of the spam stuff that people have tried to post.

But here’s one that I cannot work out at all. The spammer says: ‘Hey, this is a great blog, I enjoy it a lot and will come back often. It engages me in much the same way as a live birth video.’

What am I to make of that?

    Having seen neither a live birth nor a video of it, its hard for me to tell but I would take it as a compliment.
    Perhaps in much the same as I regard the various Russian women wanting to marry me: Извините девочки, что я женат.

    Well, it’s certainly memorable. And it gave you some copy…

    “Google translate” makes polyglots of us all.

  4. Google rankings. If Google indexes your comments and that spammer’s link gets associated with the phrase, they will show up in listings for it.

    Apparently there’s a market for this:

    I never understood why you marked my comment as spam, I really do admire the way your blog gives us a graphic insight into the “birth” of DCU as a top flight third-level institution, we almost feel we are watching it on screen.

    • Aoife, I never mark any comment as spam – the system does that automatically, based on certain assumptions about content. Every so often I check the spam folder and release those that are not spam at all – which would include anything you write! Is there still one of yours that has been blocked as spam? If so, I missed it, apologies! And many thanks for your kind comment!!
