Sherlock Replies to Spam

source

I received several anonymous comments on my previous post (and on other posts in the past) that were clearly unrelated and existed only to promote different websites. Since he is not on a case at the moment, Sherlock offered to reply as he attempts to stave off boredom.

Hey there! Do you use Twitter? I'd like to follow you if that would be ok.
I'm definitely enjoying your blog and look forward to new posts.

Feel free to visit my page ...  *link removed*

No, I do not use twitter. As John already stated on his blog, any twitter accounts claiming to be mine are fake.
Observation has revealed that those who suggest they appreciates someone's work before showing they are only looking for personal gain are insulting. I suggest you do not try this again.

(on previous Mini Reviews post)
Thanks for the suggestions you have discussed here. Something
else I would like to state is that pc memory needs generally rise along with other advances in the engineering.
For instance, any time new generations of cpus are introduced to the market, there's
usually a corresponding increase in the type eferences of all computer memory and hard drive space.
This is because software program operated by these processors will
inevitably rise in power to use the new engineering.

You started out brilliantly! If only you talked about the actual suggestions in the post! However, you gave it a valiant attempt and I applaud you.

I think that everything said made a bunch of sense. But,
what about this? what if you typed a catchier title?
I ain't suggesting your information isn't solid., but suppose you
added something to maybe grab folk's attention? I mean "We're Back,
Precious!" is kinda vanilla. You ought to look at Yahoo's front page and note how they create post headlines to grab viewers interested. You might add a video or a picture or two to get people interested about what you've got to say. Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.

Review my blog *link removed*

This post was written by Gollum, so when you say that everything made "a bunch of sense", I assume you are joking.
It should be "I am not", not "I ain't". "But what about this?" with no comma. Do not use a comma immediately following a period in such a sentence. "Kind of". "Grab viewers' interest". "It would make your posts a little livelier".
Why do I even bother?

(old music meme post)
Right here is the perfect blog for anybody who wishes to understand this topic.
You know so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I really would want
to…HaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a subject which has been written about for a long time.
Excellent stuff, just excellent!

Here is my weblog: *link removed*

Oh yes, because a post about the blogger's questionable taste in music is a topic we all wish to understand. If you were to say it is almost hard to argue with Arda, almost would be the key word. At time she will be stubborn about the most trivial things, but will crumble on important topics with the right pressure. All of which are observations I am sure an ordinary commenter could learn from simply reading her blog.
Or perhaps not.
Also, it was a completely unoriginal post with a style she copied from another blog.

I seldom leave a response, but I looked at a few of the comments here "Chatting + Middle-Earth Favorites".
I actually do have a few questions for you if it's allright. Could it be just me or does it look like some of these responses look as if they are left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing at additional online sites, I'd like to
follow you. Could you list of the complete urls of all your public
pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

my web site *link removed*

If you were speaking of "brain dead folks" commenting on John's blog, I might be inclined to agree with you. I believe that Arda would be slightly more appreciative if you commented on her content, rather than insulting the individuals she associates with.
She also said I am not allowed to call you the brain dead folk on her blog.
Again, not on twitter.
Please use spell check.

Amazіng! Thiѕ blog looκѕ just like my оld one!

It's on a completely different subject but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Outstanding choice of colors!

My site: *link removed*

Amazing! What a conincidence! Especially considering the layout is completely ordinary and very little is changed from the default on this blogging platform.

Nice blog here! Also your site a lot up fast! What host are you the use of?
Cann I get your affiliate link in your host?
I wish my web site loaded up as quickly as yours lol

Here is my page: Loanbs for poor credit [*link removed*]

I can only imagine that English is not your first language.
You have greatly intrigued me about these "loanbs" you offer. Please, tell me more!
Also, I ask you to refrain from using the acronym "lol". Arda does not need any encouragement.

I also saw a few comments that included links to private detectives. If any of you are in need of a consulting detective, you can visit my website, The Science of Deduction, or contact me through The blog of Dr. John H. Watson. Don't be boring.

    1. Yeah, I'm really curious about why they're written this way and posted in random places...sometimes they get lucky with a message that seems relevant but then there are others...

    2. Glad to know someone appreciates my work.

  2. I agree wholeheartedly with you, Mr. Holmes. Such comments are made by people with the brains of insects.

    1. I have found one explanation for how these comments might work:

      This does not in any way take away from your observation that many people have the brains of insects, or they simply refuse to make use of them.

      Arda thanks you for the tag.

  3. To Arda: I tagged you :)

  5. The third one made me wonder what would happen if Sherlock and Gollum met...
    Good job thwarting the schemes of attention seekers, Mr. Holmes! See you around Baker Street ;)

    1. I would be interested to see John meet Gollum as well. I'm told they have a history, but John won't tell me anything except "shut up and read The Hobbit."
