Funny Spam 2

This copyrighted ComputerBob.com post cannot legally appear anywhere else.

Spammers constantly leave spam comments on this Web site, hoping that I’ll publish them, along with their embedded spam hyperlinks. In fact, during the past 5 years, spammers have tried to post 412,798 comments on this site.

But it’s actually pretty easy to tell the difference between spam comments and real comments, so I’ve successfully deleted every single spam comment before it’s ever been published.

For example, yesterday, a spammer posted the following spam comment here:

“You could definitely visit your abilities from the perform you’re writing. The earth wants even more fervent freelance writers just like you who seem to aren’t reluctant to mention the direction they imagine. Generally chase your cardiovascular system.”

It doesn’t make any sense at all. It reads like a bunch of gibberish.

But I think it starts to make sense if you assume that someone created it by taking sentences that were originally written in English and running them through some kind of thesaurus software that replaces the original words and phrases with other words and phrases that have similar meanings.

For example, the original phrase was “keep it under your hat,” might be changed to “retain it on your head.”

By thinking that way, it’s possible to reverse-translate the gibberish spam comment back into something that makes more sense.

Here’s yesterday’s spam comment again, with specific words and phrases underlined:

“You could definitely visit your abilities from the perform you’re writing. The earth wants even more fervent freelance writers just like you who seem to aren’t reluctant to mention the direction they imagine. Generally chase your cardiovascular system.”

And here’s my reverse-translation of those underlined words and phrases:

“You can sure see your skill from the work you’re writing. The world needs even more enthusiastic bloggers just like you who are eager to say the way they think. As a rule, follow your heart.”

Can you think of a better reverse-translation than that? Let me know by leaving a comment below.

Just make sure it’s not spam comment, or I’ll delete it.
