The return of the blogbots

Joe’s Post #33 — I may be the only one in the universe who gets a kick out of all the spam, but I do. I really do. I love my blogbots. They make me smile. The make me giggle. They make me want to become a blogbot one day.

So, in absense of anything substantial to say this week, I will let my blogbots speak for me.

“Your place is valueble for me. Thanks!” – Ok, this was kind of creepy. Have they found my place?

From… “nice.” – Apparently sexyvids likes what Karalee is writing. Oddly, I am jealous.

“Unquestionably consider that which you stated.” (Will do.) “Your favorite justification appeared to be at the internet the easiest thing to take note of.” (I know, right?) “I say to you, I definitely get irked while other folks consider worries that they plainly don’t realize about.” (That irks me too.) “You managed to hit the nail upon the highest” (Hold on, where did I hit the nail?) “and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects” (errr is that good?), “people can take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thank you.” – You’re welcome.

“Attractive portion of content. I just stumbled upon your internet site and in accession capital to claim that I get actually enjoyed account your weblog posts. Any way I’ll be subscribing on your augment and even I success you get entry to consistently quickly.”  – I’m going to retranslate this back into Chinese and send it to their government.

“You ought to take part in a contest for one of the best blogs on the web. I will advise this website!”  –  Advise away.

“This actually answered my issue, thank you!” – That’s my new business. Issues Answered By Joe

“Aw, this was a definitely nice post. In notion I would like to put in writing like this moreover – taking time and actual effort to make a especially beneficial article?- but what can I say?- I procrastinate alot and by no indicates seem to get something carried out.” – A blogblot that procrastinates? Seriously?

“Can I just say what a relief to find someone who actually knows what theyre talking about over a internet. You definitely know how to bring an difficulty to light and make it important. Far more folks must read this and realize this side in the story. I cant think youre not far more well-liked mainly because you definitely have the gift.” – At last someone who realizes why I’m not more well-liked. It’s cuz I’m too awesome!

“Its such as you read my mind!” (I do have that gift) “You seem to understand so much about this, such as you wrote the ebook in it or something. I feel that you simply could do with a few % to pressure the message house a bit, however instead of that, this is magnificent blog. A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.” – You know what, all I took away from this was ‘a fantastic read’ and ‘magnificent blog’. They’ll be quotes on my book, Blogs by Message House Joe.

“Youre so cool!” (I am) “I dont suppose Ive read something like this prior to.” (I’ll let this slide, you said I was so cool.) “So nice to come across somebody with some original thoughts on this topic.” (Oh stop, I’m blushing.) “realy thank you for starting this up. this web page is something which is needed on the internet, an individual having a little originality.” (That’s me, baby.) “valuable job for bringing some thing new to the internet!” – Valuable job indeed, though I don’t know how you managed to spell valuable correctly and bugger up realy.

“To be honest this was an incredible detailed post even so as with all wonderful writers there are several factors that is proved helpful after. Yet never the actual less it had been interesting.” – Once again, all I took away from this was I was a wonderful writer. How perceptive the blogbots are becoming. Skynet will not kill me when the time comes.

“highly nice post, i undoubtedly really like this internet site, maintain on it.” – I will totally maintain on it. In fact, I will make a T-shirt that says just that. Maintain on it!

Now, back to maintaining on queries.

  1. I find the spam comments amusing too. Today I got this one – “I would like to know when you write this article is what kind of mood, why would you write this article, also written so splendid, is that I can learn. I think I could record something like you….” They must be using something like this Duck Island Greeking Machine –

  2. Spam posts make for some entertaining posts, as do search terms. 🙂 But something distresses me. I recognize many of these comments from my blog. And here I thought I really had something unique going on. 😉

    The online games are filling the queue today, with such wise words as, “Right here is the right site for everyone who wishes to understand this topic. You know so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I really will need to…HaHa). You certainly put a brand new spin on a subject that has been written about for a long time. Wonderful stuff, just wonderful!”

    And the subject matter that has been written about for a long time? The comment was meant to go on a page dedicated to one of the characters in my WIP. I’ve never seen anyone else write about him! 🙂

  3. It will be really sad when the bots get so good at sounding human that they don’t give themselves away anymore. I sense that they’re learning fast, and that’s kind of creepy.

    The older, dumber ones just write gobbledygook. These are hilarious. The slightly smarter ones now write like kind of challenged (but genuine) humans. Now, I see from JM’s example that the newest, smartest ones are writing like ordinary people who happen to be exceptionally smarmy.

    Okay, maybe they’re mimicking very low level PR flacks now … but they’re only going to get better and better at it. Thank god they’re not writing novels, or we’d all be in trouble. Of course, there’s no chance the bots will ever be programmed to write books … there’s no money in it!

    • I think that one day books may be written by computers. There’s a good case to be made that the movie Battleship was not written by anyone with human intelligence. But let’s hope that day when the computer can duplicate human creativity is a long way off. Yes, I’m talking to you Skynet.
