A very brazen spam approach...


Today's spam was even saltier than usual...

Well hello there, friends and neighbors in Internetland...  Here I sit on a cloudy Friday morning.  The sheets are in the washing machine and I am on my second cup of coffee, lovingly made for me by my husband, Bill, who has just left for work.  As I ponder what today's blog post will be about, I notice there's a pending comment.  I open it up to find this...


Wow...

I gotta give credit to Mixtix.  This is a full on ad, complete with conversational language.  It's not the usual generic statement left by spammers who simply put a link in their comments.  This could be a late night TV commercial.

I have to wonder, though, how successful these spam ads are.  I suppose they must get some people taking the bait, since they continue to spam.  I can't imagine buying something like this from an obvious spam ad, though, particularly one that is in the comment section of a blog that has nothing to do with the ad.  Actually, I can't imagine buying something like this, period.  Not only do I not have a penis, but I am also quite satisfied with the one Bill has.  Another inch, let alone three or four inches, is liable to kill me.

I wonder, though... is this issue really as big of a problem as the person who wrote this post claims?  Are there really men out there who are agonizing about the size of their members?  Are they that concerned their manhood is so inadequate that they won't be able to satisfy a woman?  Is that really what having a big schlong is all about in the first place?  And are the men who are so angsty about their penises desperate enough to buy products from a spam comment?  It seems kind of strange to me, but there must be a market for it.


Maybe Carlin was onto something...  Perhaps "bigger dick fear" is behind these spammy ads for penis enlargement products...  Actually, this clip is pretty funny, given Trump's recent dick waving session with Kim Jong Un.


On the other hand, this fundie preacher apparently thinks girls have no minds of their own.  Maybe that's why this product is such a "hot commodity".

I posted the above comment, by the way, simply so I could get a screenshot.  Then, I deleted it.  I do not allow spam comments on my blogs.  In fact, spam comments are one reason why I now moderate comments on older posts.  The other reason is because sometimes people get pissed off about things I write and leave me nasty or threatening comments.  I don't want to allow people to do that, so I moderate comments on all posts of a certain age.  I have noticed that since I started moderating, I get a lot fewer spam comments and nastygrams.  That makes everything nicer.

I'm glad it's Friday.  The week has flown by.  I'm not sure what we'll be doing over the weekend.  I think Bill has homebrew to bottle, plus I have a feeling we'll be calling Ticketmaster in Ireland about our missing Paul Simon tickets.  Other than that, who knows?

  1. Society encourages guys to be competitive, and with the locker room mentality present in many places where they gather, it's probably a topic of discussion at least on occasion. Still I find it hard to believe that they obsess over the issue to the degree that the author of the above post would have us believe.

    From what I've read, excessive circumference [even more than length] can be a deal-breaker. Concerning circumference, length, or whatever other measures one might use (one of my bona fide adult make friends describes the comparison of erect versus non-erect penises as "showers" versus "growers"), I'm far more likely to reject a guy for being too well-endowed than because his member is too small.
