I don’t get a whole lot of spam on Mom101. The occasional 8700 word punctuation-free diatribe of nonsense from an IP in Nigeria may stumble through the cracks, or some amateur asshat SEO type trying to get the CELL PHONE SHOP keyword on thirty different posts. Otherwise, pretty quiet.
But on Cool Mom Picks, since we started accepting comments – hoo boy, am I privy to a whole new world. Over 1900 snagged in the last two weeks. 20% of them from one guy.
Evidently spammers no longer write AHOY FOR YOU PRETTY STARFISH EAT CRAZY MUNGBEAN SUNSET BREAKFAST TIME which is fairly easy to spot (unless you’re moderating comments off your iPhone from an opium den somewhere). Now the likes of Rosalva Brinkman and Ragnarok Zeny post comments that seem nearly authentic. The kinds of things you just might overlook:

Um, here’s a hint, Gaylord: If we’re in the market for baby cribs, we probably don’t need Viagra.
That’s when I realized, spammers work hard!
They are easily the most underappreciated writers on the internet, sure to leave a literary legacy that far surpasses any of our own. The provide an endless source of both enjoyment and annnoyance, a seeming contradiction generally reserved for our own children. And that’s saying something.
So while I’m completely uninterested in the whole idea of blog awards, especially those determined by popular vote (“Wait, so that’s the funniest blog ever? Or the blog that hired the most monkeys to sit at a keyboard clicking the radio button next to ‘funniest blog’ once a day, every day for three months?”) I think it would be just dandy to solicit entries for the Blog Spam Awards.
