Sexy spam comments
One of the fun things about blogging is getting immediate feedback and some interaction with the readers through the comments after each post (so yeah, don't hesitate to write a comment, I read them all with great interest!). I have received the occasional spam comment, but actually very few and nothing that I can't handle with a quick delete most of the time so I don't really see spam comments as a problem or even a real annoyance.
However, to my amusement I have recently noticed how one of my posts seem to be attracting Japanese spam comments like nothing else. A few months ago I innocently posted this tv commercial (post here) with artist Kaela Kimura. The Japanese sex related spam comments just keep on coming. What I find interesting here is how things are connected, obviously the robot spam posters are directed to follow the Kaela commercial video and I assume that the rationale would be that her fans would be more prone to be interested in the stuff advertised in the spam?
I briefly considered deleting them as they came in, but then I thought it could be more entertaining to keep them there since they're so localized in any case.
(Oh yeah, the man-bra in the picture you can buy here, you know you should and the text in Japanese in the page is pretty great so get someone to translate for you if you can't read it!)
