Spam comment ho

I’m so stupid. I got a comment that said “Great site! ciao :)” from a user named “NY-Sunbed.” And me, being a pig for compliments, allowed them in. Only when I went to their link did I realize I had been taken in LIKE A FOOL, defeated by my ego needs once again.

Spam is disease, people. It’s so hard to avoid the innundation of advertisements. There are so many questionnaires or sign-ups that dangle the possibility of free prizes as a reward. My husband loves these. I don’t understand it. I’m like, honey, you know that you can’t win a free laptop by sweepstakes, right? You know that, RIGHT? But he keeps on believing, whereas I’m more comfortable being the skeptic. Thing is, I tripped up and answered one of those questionnaires, and do you know what prize caught my eye? One of those motorized thingies where you can stand and speed around. I don’t even know what it’s called. I saw it once on “Frazier.” I don’t even really want one and even if I did, there’s NO room in the apartment for it. Now my personal email account is going down in flames with the endless ads that follow.

    I love that you put your skepticism aside to try and win a segway of all things. But I’m sorry that it was spam and not a legit contest because seeing you zipping around on a segway would SO. MAKE. MY. DAY.

    Or it could be convenient to zip away from boring or tedious conversations. You just press go and roll away while someone is in mid-speech.
