Hey guys! To celebrate the blog’s (gulp!) 6th anniversary, I’ve got a funny blog story for you – well. I find it funny at least…
So there’s this guy, I’ll call him Scotty the Dummy (STD) for reasons that will become apparent shortly.
STD discovers my blog some time in mid/late 2015 and starts commenting on it. At first it’s the standard stuff with a few questions/requests. The requests become demands and insults and so I put STD on the old spam list, which is great for me because I don’t even see whatever he posts… if he posts at all… and I go about my life.
Here’s where it gets funny (again, probably just for me) – I happen to check my spam folder (on an unrelated matter) and I find that STD has been sending me messages – multiple times, every day! Seriously, throughout December/January, he sent like 150 comments – comments I never read, replies (that never got posted) to comments on the board, over and over again. No one ever saw these comments. It was like screaming at a deaf man. And it’s not like he ever said anything original or interesting. For fun I decided to read through some of his missives over the last month and a half and I found out:
I’m gay (which will be a surprise to my wife) – some form of that insult was stated about 20 times
My wife is a man (a surprise to her and anyone who has seen her)
I’m a loser/more vulgar insults
At least a dozen references to calling me diarrhea2 (hilarious!)
My blog post sucks/the pictures aren’t big enough (about 30 times) – this from someone who comes back every day
It’s time for me to quit – again, from someone who comes back every day
All of my readers are sycophants (I’d like to thank you all for agreeing with everything I say and 5-starring every post!)
And, because of course, at least a dozen racist comments about some of the women I’ve posted
Then on January 29 he commented “… I’m out. You wanted me to stop coming here, so later…” Now of course you all realize that I had no idea he was still coming here and commenting. I really didn’t care at all about STD, he was (and still is) a non-entity to me.
Now here is where the funny becomes sad (well, it’s still kinda funny) and you can probably guess where this is going. Two weeks later, on February 13 to be exact, guess who’s back! Since then he’s commented over 30 times to deaf ears (except when I went back to write this post).
So STD, I salute you and your perseverance and let this be a notice to you that from this moment forth no comment of yours shall ever be read by me, unless…..
I’ll leave it to you, dear blog readers. Shall I un-spamify poor little STD who can’t help but to come to the blog he hates every single day? Would you like to see the urbane, witty comments he posts several times a day from his mother’s basement in New Mexico? Let me know. As always, your wish is my command.
Seriously though, I would like to thank all of you who comment (productively). Some days it’s what makes this blog (and blogger) keep going. And a special thank you again to all those who contributed in November – it meant a lot to me.
Now on with the damn Twitter pics (which STD hates by the way)
