Forum and Comment Trolls

My dear friend Melisa made me aware of a tweet by Liz from This Full House. Liz has received two utterly stupid comments and decided to create a Comment Troll Award*.

*Update: I just received word from Liz herself to use this beauty and pass it on. Thank you Liz for designing this beauty!

Now I haven’t gotten any really nasty comments on my blog but like most of you I have received spam comments. Ramblings that promoted products, plugged other blogs, sex or like these, simply didn’t make any sense of all.

The latter are especially annoying because they don’t make ANY sense WHATSOEVER.

These three comments are currently still visible and were written in response to last night’s Wikipedia Vulva post.

Comment 1


I am very happy to learn that my article has helped you [sic!] altogehter in your college assignment. Hats afar?… What are you studying to become an OB/GYN?

Comment 2


Well again, I am glad I could be of help fill you on or in and this fill in on, you know?

Comment 3


I easily love my own writing choice and I’d like to think it is very unique. After all I speak/write in broken English/German and though I have pondered giving up, your encouraging comment makes me go on. I am hoping my ramblings are worth being followed and I too wish you a good day.


Why would I post comments like this to a blog over and over again. It’s not the first nor will it be the last time that these same comments were posted in response to some of my blog posts. I just don’t get it. If you’re spamming me then at least advertise something dick enhancing feature or whatnot but these stupid ramblings, well they simply DON’T MAKE ANY SENSE at all so if you have nothing to say, don’t say anything at all.

I feel from the deepness of my heart that the fine humans who left you these comment pieces used the graceful Google Translator.

I'm laughing because I got the exact same comment on my blog yesterday - the first one - how funny! I've learned to delete these - they're spam, in my book.

Melisa LOL yeah sounds a bit Google translator-ish

Drama Queen Yes you see them pop up all over the blogosphere now and then. They are definitely spam but WHY would I post spam like that? That's the question that remains unanswered for me :)

I love Melisa's comment ;)

You get spam? I never get any kind of spam ramblings about sex products. How disappointing, You get all the fun shit.

Is it cause they think SoccerMoms are nice????? They are so wrong.

Since they're not trying to sell anything or post links, these people must actually be doing assignments. I only hope for their teacher's sakes that they're not doing them in English.

If you stop blogging, all those students will fail their degrees and the educational system in some poor underdeveloped country will collapse.

Alright, I am not comment trolling like whatever the heck that is above my comment. This post made me laugh. Hard. Hats Afar?! LOL!

Great stuff.

Wow, at first I saw that award and wanted it! I was running through possible stupid comments to post and try to win it. Then I read your winners comments.

Man I know when I am beat! No way can I compete with those gems!

I hang my head in nerdy shame.
