Some more on Comments

I don’t get many comments on my site, and of course they don’t appear unless you click on them. A few are relevant to the post they’re attached to; most appear suspiciously irrelevant.
Here’s one that seems like a compliment…with a sting in its tail.
"You really have some interesting stuff on your site. keep at it.xenical."

Hey, if you're interested in health and healthy kid snacks recipe, you might like to visit my healthy kid snacks recipe - it's all about healthy kid snacks recipe. Thanks!"
And this one is over-the-top complimentary – and has a slight brain-stop in the middle:

Why aren't you in advertising or better yet a "think tank". Can you teach this kind of creative thinking? Is it something you were born with? Keep the fabulous ideas comming! [sic]"
As does this one…
"Hi, I was just blog surfing and found you! If you are interested, go see my best vitamins related site. It isnt anything special but you may still find something of interest."
And I got a whole series of this kind. Apparently private road construction is very important!
