Just like the patron in the classic Monty Python skit, I don't like SPAM! OK, I don't mind the canned spiced ham product, it has its place in the pantries of suburbia. What I can't stand are anonymous comments which have NOTHING to do with the topic at hand.
A few times a week I'll get a comment on a recipe post, such as, "You make a valid point, I never thought of the issue quite that way. Visit my page to buy vintage Metallica albums."
They never thought of a pancake recipe quite that way? The comment is so general that it could easily apply to 99% of the blog posts out there. Generic comments, like this tell me the commenter didn't read the posted blog. They're posting a comment to try to get free advertising.
By the way, what good does it do to call themselves "Anonymous" if they're going to provide a link to a website they own? It makes me think the commenter is either a moron, or the link isn't to a real website, in which case the link is probably designed to add spy ware to my computer.
A legitimate commenter can leave their web address in the comment form's URL field, and anyone clicking on the commenter's name will be whisked straight to their site. That's what the URL field is for.
If someone has a legitimate comment about a post, even if the commenter completely disagrees with what I've written, I'll approve such comments every time. However, if someone merely scribbles a generic line of crap in order to expand their market for; discount Viagra, camping gear, or 70s memorabilia; I WILL NEVER approve such tripe.
From now on, silly spam comments will appear on the Wall Of Shame below, with the links disabled so my readers won't get a virus.

"Community Schemes" are subdivisions where a lot owner owns and maintains a building constructed on that lot and shares the use (and the maintenance costs) of common property facilities with other land owners and/or the public. What this has to do with eating healthy, I have no idea.

This spammer had a sophisticated vocabulary at least. This form of "indite," rarely used today, means "compose" or "put down in writing." When one finds a quiet place to sit down with their notebook and pen they indite a journal entry or a first draft of a short story.
However, I sincerely doubt that talking about the 16th century British philosopher, Sir Thomas More, would've improved an entry about Béchamel Sauce.

WHAT!?!? What's this person trying to say? Is the poster irked because some people don't think Wood Fired Pizza concerns them? WHAT!?!? Next time they need to wait until their drug induced haze is over before making a comment.

For a moment, let's ignore the fact that we don't which paragraph this person finds remarkable. Instead, let's take a minute to ponder the fact that this genius left a spam comment on an entry about the idiocy of spam comments. Really?

Forgetting the fact that my "articles is really great," one has to be a bit awe struck that a piece on caviar was THE MOST IMPORTANT information for him, considering that he, apparently, sells ballet shoes.

"The report discusses the market structure, current and past market performance and factors critical to the success of the industry. All this is mainly as a result of the high proportion of trade-related US dollars flowing into their coffers, which has made them proportionately more reliant on the value of those dollars held. And to guarantee you've got a successful experience, always use the right gold panning tools.

So, the quality of my steak wrap depends on the high proportion of trade-related US dollars flowing into their coffers? Really guy? Really?

I don't even know what a "squeamish argument" over Béchamel Sauce would look like.
