I am, of course, still receiving a kazillion spam messages a day, just like everybody else in the world. While giving that a cursory glance to make sure Akismet hasn’t decided that a legitimate comment is spam, I came across this one (I have, of course, removed the plethora of links that infested the message):

If you don’t approve this they will kill me. penis enlargement penis enlargement They’re coming back now. vimax vimax Please send help! nitip penis enlargement penis enlargement

You would have to be an idiot to fall for it, but at least it’s kinda funny. I love the idea that some blogger out there actually reads this and starts freaking out about the poor guy who’s in this horrible position, and not only doesn’t dare delete it, but also agonizes over not knowing where that help should be sent. I mean, you know somebody out there is dumb enough to believe it, right?
