Just received:

Your great blog is just worth a read if anyone comes across it. Im lucky used to do because now Ive got a completely new view of this unique. I didnt realise that this issue was so important and so universal. You definitely input it in perspective for my family, thanks for the wonderful info.

This comment was to be posted here, and the comment included a link to some company that specializes in water damage and mold.

Okay then.

I’m so glad my oboe blog is useful to them.


  1. I usually get spam comments that tell me they can help me get more traffic to my website. That’s all I need…. more spam traffic.

  2. Most of the spam comments are caught before I even see them, but I know I used to see some of those, Janet. Recently Akismet (the plugin that catches ’em) has really caught a ton! In fact I just checked and a message tells me “Akismet has protected your site from 76,335 spam comments already.”

  3. I’m always curious about what gets blocked: how to be sure some of them are not really gold?

    In my blog, a poster must input some words that are shown in a picture, but can’t be analyzed by a program.

  4. In all the time I’ve had this blog I think I’ve had 2 legitimate comments get called spam, but I can go through them all if I choose. At this point I’m just trustful of it, as this past year it’s been spot on. I should probably start reading them all again … but as you can see, there are thousands of spam comments. I don’t know if WordPress has the word identification way of checking (which I often struggle with because I can’t always see what the darn “words” — which aren’t always words — are!).

    When a person first leaves a comment, if it’s not immediately detected as spam, I get an email asking me to verify the person. Most of the time I will them write to the commenter and ask for a response including his/her name. This way I catch any spammers that weren’t caught by Akismet (and believe me, there have been a number of those!).

    It’s tricky, I know, but I just can’t stand any comments that link to commercial sites that have nothing to do with music, much less oboe.

  5. 21 spam comments so far today, with links to non-music, non-oboe, non-related sites. Not one legit:

    Great Post!! Thank you very much!

    Is it possible to hack a psp 3000 oficial firmware 5.55?

    Birmingham has plenty of excellent restaurants to consider when arranging a date. However, the ultimate adult dating rendezvous must be the NEC, especially now that the new LG Arena ensures all of the major acts and artists perform there.

    Hello.This article was extremely fascinating, especially because I was looking for thoughts on this topic last couple of days.

    Doing a bit of web surf and observed your weblog appears to be a bit screwed up in my K-meleon browser. However luckily hardly anyone utilizes it any longer but you might want to take a look into it.

    […] Ah, Spam Comments, How You Entertain! « oboeinsight […] (this one took my own writing and linked to it at their guitar site that has an ad for Vandoren clarinet reeds. Okay then.)

    ommunity – I should really exclaim, impressed with your site. I had no trouble navigating through all the tabs as well as critical information had been extremely simple and easy to access. I stumbled onto what I wished for very quickly in the slightest. Incredibly remarkable.

    I found your site on yahoo. I couldn’t agree additional. Weight loss isn’t rocket science like some people would have you believe. It just takes some dedication and discipline. I will definately be back to check your site.

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is magnificent blog. An excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.Regards, you can always check my website to [link removed]
