I have to say, I’ve run into something I never thought I’d see:Â a courteous spammer.
This amazes me.Â I didn’t think they existed.Â Why can’t all spammers be this honest and up front about their intentions?
I manage the writing forums over at WritAnon, and found this message today by a new “member”.
Hello. This is a spam bot test message. If you are admin or moderator, please delete this message. I will see that there are alive people here and the board is moderated. And I will never come back… Else we both will be upset, cuz I will start to spam this place 1000 times a day, posting viagra and porn stuff, and you will start deleting my messages. Thank you and good luck. Sorry to bother you
I almost felt bad as I disapproved the message.Â Almost.
Their honesty is refreshing, and a good deal from the garbledy-gook that I usually see from the spambots that try to sign up on the board.
Anyway, I thought I’d share.Â A spammer being polite and honest.Â Who woulda thunk?
