From biscuits to Viagra?

I rarely go into my spam folder, but I did today and discovered that the keywords ‘New’ and ‘Improved’ [in the title of a post] can attract some interesting spam.

The post in question was my rant about Arnotts BBQ Shapes biscuits which are marketed as ‘new and improved’…and are anything but. I stand by my comments about the biscuits, but I may to think twice about my titles in the future. Then again, just including viagra in the title of this post may bring even more spammers to my door. I’ll keep you posted.

This is a screenshot of one of the viagra ones:

The kinky porn ones I’ll leave to your imagination, other than to say they seem to be attracted to the word ‘sexy’ in my post ‘Villains – what is it that makes them so sexy?‘.

On a brighter note, I’m immensely relieved that only 11 of my comments are from spammers. That’s not bad over four years and almost 12,000 comments. 😀

cheers
