The last few weeks I’ve seen a really encouraging growth of blog traffic. That’s really nice.

Along with higher traffic comes more frequent “spam” comments. So far, the WordPress built-in spam catcher has done a nice job of keeping the comments out of the public eye. (I have it set so that any first-time commenter has to be approved by me.) The comments that are identified as “likely spam” end up in a spam folder, and I check them from time to time, just to be sure some legitimate comment didn’t get accidentally labeled. (It’s only ever happened once, on this blog, but I figure better safe than sorry.)

I don’t know why, but this week I started getting a series of spam comments that encourage me to “Learn a Fake Australian Accent” or “Understand any Australian Accent.” There were ten variations on this theme.

I’m not sure what prompted this wave of Aussie-centric spam. But here are a few of the funnier lines of computer generated (obviously) text.

Book Blurb-worthy

I did come across a couple of these comments that might be worthy to blurb on a future book cover or list in my website’s “What Other People Are Saying” section:

That last one may be my favorite.
