When spambots get it wrong

I’ve posted before about the amusement that can be had at the expense of the clueless spammers who set up their bots with poorly written strings. Thanks to the various anti-spam tools now protecting this blog, there are few comments appearing in my spam folder. There was one today though, and the cluelessness reached new heights. The dolt writing the spambot was too dumb to set it up correctly to spew out a series of inane generic comments from a list, but instead put the whole lot of the comment strings in a single self-contradictory comment!

Here it is in all its glory:

The very next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesn’t disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I genuinely thought you’d have something helpful to say.

      Hover over your name and you will see the link you provided. They’re trying to get their URLs onto legitimate sites to improve the likelihood of people visiting their special places.

      In previous iterations of this blog, I had turned off the commenters’ URL feature so they wouldn’t have received a direct benefit. However, if I had allowed through an apparently legitimate post, that commenter might, depending on my settings, be allowed to post a comment that itself contained a link, without me approving it first. It wouldn’t have worked here because I moderate all comments containing URLs, but they don’t know that and are trying their luck anyway.
