Spam Haiku

Mindcamp Fun

by Franca Leeson

“Comment spam” is a way to get web links onto the radar of search engines, thus promoting the ranking of the spammer’s website (it’s called spamdexing). Spammers attach comments to blog stories, and insert links to their own sites into the comment.

Mindcamp receives dozens of these spam comments a day (we’ve received 40 already and it’s not even noon), but 98% of them are caught by Akismet, an automatic spam detection plugin. The other 2% come to me, as any comment from a new source must be approved before it gets published. I mark them as spam and Akismet learns a little bit more about what to reject.

Apparently native English speakers don’t engage in this activity, because every single comment is written in English so bad it’s poetic. This, for example, can with a few line breaks and a title be converted into a loose form of Haiku:

Rapidly Famous

"Heh-heh-heh! Good one, dude!"

“Heh-heh! Heh-heh! Good one, dude!”

Very rapidly this web page
will be famous among all blogging people,
due to it’s good articles

So this morning, instead of working on sensible things, I took our theme “Worlds in Collision” to heart: the world of spammers and Mindcamp colliding. The result: I realized that these spammers are actually awakened beings trying to enlighten us with their cryptic poetry. I gathered up a handful of examples and, by inserting strategic line breaks and adding titles, was able to create little collection of spam wisdom for your enjoyment.
