Come Monday...Malicious Intent?

“Come Monday…” is a weekly series that will involve a review of (or commentary about) websites, movies, documentaries, television shows, sports, music, and whatever else may tickle my fancy at the time.  Be assured that these reviews will be generally positive, as in accordance to the Jimmy Buffett song “Come Monday.”  This is subject to change, however.  In fact, I would be most derelict in my duties to neglect going on a rant every once in a while.  For rants promote change, and change can be good—right?  Therefore, since good is generally considered as being a positive force in 99.3% of the parallel universes that I am aware of, even a rant could be considered as being something positive, and a genuine hissy-fit would be even better (so I’m told).

I was of the opinion that I had become fairly adept at discerning between good and bad emails, but I have received two fairly recently that almost sucked me in.  The last one was as follows:

I am responsible for the website
The reason why I am contacting you is the content of the some links that points towards my website.
I would like to thank you very much for writing about our company but at the same time ask you to add a rel='nofollow' attribute or eliminate the link.
I would also like to clarify that you are not the only person that we contact and we just want to make sure that our website's reliability will not be decreased due to the new Penguin updates.
Please get in touch as soon as possible to confirm that you received the email and removed the link. The alternative solution for us would be to send a Disavow Link report to Google which is something that would also decrease your rankings.
Thank you for the understanding.

After having to endure (with my wife) the wrath of a mad cat lady over seeing a picture of her kitty in one of Arlynda Lea’s Sites to See a few weeks ago, I must admit that the email caught me completely offguard when I first saw it, and for a few tense moments, I was tempted to click on the included links to see if I could find out what it was referring to.  I finally did visit the site in question by copying and pasting the URL, and it turned out to be a tourism site for San Diego, California.  Oh, and in case you are interested, we do not have any published links on our sites to that site.

Thankfully, the Jolly Roger did not start flying on my monitor, nor did any maggots started crawling out of the air-vents of my CPU.  I am not so sure of nothing bad happening if I had of clicked on the links in the email, though.

Alas, be assured that I am well aware of the fact that the notices sent out to those included in our Sites To See series are considered to be spam by far too many.  For most do not remember me leaving a complimentary comment on their site beforehand to test if they have the hated word-verification thingy engaged, and there is also the absolute truth of the matter truly being that far too many simply cannot fathom the idea of someone doing something nice for them without there being a catch to it.

In all fairness, I think there is a big difference between our copyrighted (just kidding) notices and comments like the following:

Oh yeah, it appears that Anonymous has done went and got ahold of some really “good” drugs.  For I do not believe that these idiotic comments are simply a matter of much being lost in translation.  Hmm, I wonder what I could come up with under the same influence…

  1. I've gotten some emails saying they liked my site and would like to either offer me something or make some kind of trade for links. I rarely look any further into them. Especially if it's some odd sounding site. I have no desire to earn any money with my blog and I certainly have no desire to be scammed :)
    That comment is seriously screwed up and I've gotten a few just like that or quite similar.None of them ever get through my spam filter though

    1. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Ann!!! Yeah, those spam comments were caught by the Blogger spam filter, but the email got through into my inbox, as did another just eight hours ago. Sigh.

  2. On drugs...... Definitely, heee heeee heeee

    1. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Shadow!!! Yeah, and he probably ain't into sharing, neither!

  3. I receive spam all the time and it couldn't be more annoying. My site was receiving over a hundred spam and anonymous comments a day until my web designer figured out a way to eliminate most of them without me resorting to the dreaded word identification.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Stephen!!! Alas, such is the price of fame--huh?

  4. I sit here shaking my head, and still the words do not fall into their rightful places - I can make no sense of it at all. Weird, is the only word that falls into place! ;)

    1. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Lee!!! I suspect it is all by design in the hope that some will want to follow their links to see what may be going on with them.


Since the Blogger spam filter has been found sorely lacking lately, I will start moderating comments. Be assured that I am only interested in deleting spam. So, if you feel a need to take me to task over something—even anonymously, go ahead and let 'er rip, and I will publish it as soon as I can.
