Spam Comments

No matter what you do you’re going to get spammed…it’s just a fact of life…

But instead of getting upset about it, I just delete it all in bulk – but sometimes I actually read some of it as I find quite a bit of it somewhat FUNNY!  I don’t get much spam on most of my accounts as I have them locked down pretty tight – and use different apps to control it – but it still gets through…

The “KINDS” of spam that I find completely funny are “comment” spammers – they can’t even write well.  In fact, they barely know English at all – and yet they are trying to promote all kinds of products, services, etc. and I can only assume they’ll think I’ll be “lured in” by their statements about what I say or post…OR they like to try to make a statement like – I’d like more information like this – great post or try some sort of “flattery” that NEVER WORKS!

But the “spam comments” I find to be the MOST funny is when somebody tries to actually make a comment on a post baiting me to engage in an intellectual type of exchange with them!   Guess what – you might want to BONE up on a TON of information about business, law, intellectual property and MOST importantly about the MUSIC BUSINESS!   Hey, I’m not saying I’m the biggest expert in the world on this subject – but I will say that I probably know more about it than most people that don’t have the number of years that I’ve put into this business of music.  More specifically keeping up with the VAST number of changes that have taken place over the past 20 or more years…with just plain old fashioned hard work and CONSTANT READING!

So before you think or ONE second that ANY of the above tricks will get you anywhere – LEARN HOW TO WRITE – if you can’t get your idea across in PLAIN ENGLISH then you’re NOT going to make it on my comments page(s).

BEST OF LUCK TO YOU ALL!  And I guess keep on trying as you’re not getting through – but you sometimes give me some GREAT IDEAS as they come from WAY OUTSIDE OF NOWHERE!

Just keeping it real…and as usual there are some obscure references and/or double entendres in their somewhere…IF you’re smart enough to catch them.
