Over the years this blog has built a nice following. Unfortunately this fact means the SPAM kings also target NorthstarNerd.Org with endless, mindless comments in their quest to sell a given product. This has forced me to moderate comments to prevent their junk from appearing online, but I have to admit on occasion their comments leave me laughing. Just like my friend's rich uncle in Nigeria who died leaving a fortune in a bank account ... they are getting creative, particularly given their limited knowledge of the English language. Here are four recent SPAM comments, and my post at which they were directed:

Labor Vanquishes: My Favorite Engineering Webinars
- Labor vanquishes all---not inconstant, spasmodic, or ill-directed labor; but faithful, unremitting, daily effort toward a well-directed purpose. Do you think so?
- Singularity is almost invariably a clue. The more featureless and commonplace a crime is, the more difficult is it to bring it home. (Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, British writer)
Love: General Mills 2.0
- Love shows respect and never hurting our loved one in any sort of way, and if we should, it's allowing them to see the hurt in our eyes for speaking disrespectful or wrong to them.
Wasting Time Over Budgets: Mind Mapping Software
- Time spent agonizing over
budget figures is time wasted. Even if miracle of miracles! Yours are honest
and accurate, no one else will have been so foolish. Did you agree with me?
