Why I Love Spammers

swat computer

Lots of bloggers curse the spammers, but where does that get us?  What we resist persists. I’ve gotten a LOT of spam lately, as in  ongoing spam comments every 3 minutes for at least a week. Lots of spam to clean out of my comments folder.  So what’s a girl to do?  Create a list of positive aspects of spam AKA the Why I Love Spammers list.

Here goes:

1. It means that my site is getting more well known. I never used to get any spam, so if the spammers can find me, other people can, too.

2. Lots of spam comments is driftwood for lots of  real, interactive comments. It’s a sign that I’m getting closer to what I want.

3. Spammers push me to learn more about how to prevent them and I love learning new things.

4. Spammers are persistent and apparently, creative in what they do. A reformed spammer could be an internet force to be reckoned with.

5. The spam has given me the push to hire someone to help me manage the things I don’t know how to do on this site, like SEO and getting my spam filter to work.

6. It’s fun to see a long list of e-mails in my inbox telling me I have comments awaiting moderation.

7. Since spammers are always telling me where to find online casinos and wanting to send me money from a foreign lottery, I must be really close to manifesting a large chunk of change.

8. If the spammers actually read my blog, they might get happy and stop spamming.

9. Spammer’s help me remember that I create my own reality and I can experience it any way I decide and I’ll have fun figuring out how to deal with them.

10. The spammer’s gave me a great idea for a fun blog post and apparently, I qualify for a free casino bonus. So there!

If you got any more reason’s to love spammers or other “unlovables” such as telemarketers, I’d love to hear them. To prove it, I’Im giving away one of my Angel Card readings (see service page) to one of my commenters during the month of June. I’ll put everyone’s name in random.org and choose a winner to be announced here around July 1st. Then I’ll email the winner with the details if I have access to their e-mail or you can check back here around the first and e-mail me if you’re the winner.

    Brilliant! I especially like #8. (-:

  • When I clean out my spam folder each morning, it’s like sweeping the kitchen floor before making breakfast…I feel I have cleaned and prepped my space and am ready to go *grin* I love #7–I must be close to manifesting a large chunk of change, too!

    That’s hysterical and all true, actually. Whenever I get the emails from Nigeria telling me that they are the President of Nigeria and they want me to help clean up their corrupt country by giving them my financial information (so that they can get my stolen money back to me), I gotta give ’em props every time. That’s what the delete button is for!

    I can’t really say that I “love” telemarketers, but digging through old Facebook statuses, I found a real gem I posted from September 2010. Totally true story. As follows:
    This is incredible, I just got a phone call from a telemarketer who sounded like a Hee Haw character. I thought someone was playing a prank on me and I was waiting for the punch line, but it was real! He had not only the accent, but also the up and down squeaking that would make him the perfect cartoon voice. I was waiting for my husband or someone to start laughing and give themselves away. Didn’t happen.

    • Jane, that’s such a funny story. In our house, my daughter speaks fluent Spanish, so she loves to answer the telephone and talk to the telemarketers in Spanish. Then, they started having Spanish people call and we speak to them in English, LOL. I have to add though, I do feel blessed not to have that job so I try to be as kind as I can while I get quickly off the phone with them.
      Thanks for sharing,
      Michelle
