    Nilbo,
    I have said this before on other blog comment sections, you are one of the funniest, most intelligent bloggers that I read.

    You can delete this at anytime to make yourself look good.

    The Trailer Trash

    What? You mean Michael isn't our friend?

    Call the dogs from under the porch, daddy!

    Rob

    I was reading your post, Nils, and I thought I would take this opportunity to tell you about a great site where you can get all kinds of comment spam at great prices. All my friends are talking about it and it has really saved me a fortune on comment spam. If you're interested in saving all kinds of money on comment spam, just follow the link: http://www.ISavedOnCommentSpam.com

    Nils

    Thanks for the kind words, "Bill" .. I'll leave your comment up for now, because such perspicacity makes YOU look good.

    TT - "Michael" is a perfect meal for a hungry hound or six. Release the hounds.

    Rob - to disprove "Michael's" point about making myself look good, let me admit before the internet as a hole that I actually clicked on your frigging link. I'm an idiot. BUT ... you are a slacker. Comment away, but it's time to post.

    Davey

    Internet as a "hole"; I think you're on to something there.

    Did someone mention "grammar Nazis"?

    I really do have too much time on my hands. Pity me, please.

    Nils

    What, it's not a hole? As in a Black Hole of Time ...? Forgive me my teensy running joke ... and yes, you do have too much time on your hands.

    kalki

    Dude, I am SO taking you to Target with me. That Amway bitch is going down!!

    Susie

    Well, Mr. Nils, you beat me to it, I was just going to tell Michael that you don't always look good in our eyes. But, dude, did you really have to call him "sic?" That's a little harsh, don't you think?

    Nils

    Kelly, I'd shred that slimy Amway woman. She would rue the day she chose you as her Target target.

    And Susie - I am a master of self-deprecation - nobody beats me at beating me. And anybody who misuses grammar or punctuation on my blog is sic.

    Maurice

    I'm a longtime reader of your blog, Nils, but this is my first time posting a comment. But your response to "Michael" was simply too brillant not to echo bill's compliment. You absolutely crack me up.

    SillyNessa

    Nils baby - you are the bomb diggity! Michael - you are a spamming prick!

    Nils

    Maurice - lovely to have you, and please feel free to inject your thoughts anytime. You seem a man of unusually sound reasoning.

    And Nessa, darlin' ... thank you for your kind words to me, and your deadly accurate assessment of "Michael".

    Sean Brady

    I'm a long time reader and listener of your material Mils, but this is my first time checking out your blog. I happened across it after someone responded to my W@U post (weblogs.upei.ca) about 'truths and half truths' with a post to your blog.

    Nice job of dressing down a comment spammer. They should all be stripped, hung by their townails from an ethernet line, and beaten to within an inch of their life with a ragged USB cable. Or short of that, have their comments deleted and their IP banned!

    Circus Kelli

    Ha! Good on you Nils! I've thought about commenting back to a spammer now and then (especially when there are more than 10 in my inbox and I'm in the throes of PMS), but I've always backed down. Mostly because I didn't want it to go on and on and on.

    Now, if you'll excuse me, I have some comment spam on my site that I must get rid of...

    Ern

    Nils, I have been a fan for awhile now, but I don't know about this. I can't believe that you would stoop to censorship. Michael was clearly just trying to let you in on a low-priced opportunity that would only benefit you in the long run.

    And you should take it as a complement that he came back to see your blog. He was obviously impressed by what he saw here, more than all those other blogs he visited.

    *shaking head*

    Nils

    Hehehe I'm going to take that as delivered with your tongue firmly in cheek, Ern, darlin ... otherwise, I'd have to say that when you shake your head, you'd be hearing a *rattle rattle* sound ...

    Sean, thanks for your kind words, and please keep coming back ...

    Kelli ... usually, the best approach with spammers is to click-delete-and ignore, but in this case, I was in a bad mood and buddy seemed especially persistent. So I accomodated him. It won't happen often, but this time, it was amusing - to me, at least.

    suburban misfit

    Oh, Nils. Just for this, just because you are one funny as hell mutha, just this one time:

    Hallowe'en.

    Nils

    SM ... let me just say "Ahhhh ..."

    Ryan

    As a member of the Nintendo Generation, I feel out-classed here. Could somone please tell me what a "bomb-diggity" is?

    Return of the Flaming Nazi Grammar Infidel

    aww come on Mils. the guy just wants to make a living like anyone else. I was kind of hoping he'd come back to haunt your site, but it seems as if you've chased the likes of him away for good.
    Christ'mas is coming, let us all revel in peace and good will toward all men and fellow scots.

    Leane

    Wow I didn't know that the comment spammers would ever come back again, let alone respond to people!!
    Michael must have a lot of time in his day. Hope you've chased him off for good.

    spoonleg

    BWAHAHAHAHA, oh nilbo, will you marry me?

    whfropera

    One of the largest spammers and one of the first to get prosecuted lives here in one of the swankiest suburbs outside of Detroit.
    When his name was published in the papers, people from all over the world signed his ass up for every possible third-class piece of junk mail you can imagine - for months, the entire lawn of his plus million dollar home was filled with mailbags. The best part? His REAL mail was mixed in with junk - someone had to go through all that stuff every day.

    Stephen

    Interesting. Looks like the same Micheal that responded on my site.

    Squirl

    I was sure that all comment spam was computer-generated. I am so glad that you found one with a live body behind it, be his name Michael or whatever. Come on, Whatever isn't such a bad name with all the names they have for kids these days.

    Anyway I love how you hit him and he had to come back for more. I just turned on word verification in blogger and don't have that crap anymore. I don't know if typepad has anything like that.

    Nils

    Yep, Stephen - same spammer, identical coment. Asshole.

    Ryan, I'm not quite positive what a bomb-diggity is either, but if Nessa says I is one, I guess I is. Maybe it's a synonym for "miserable old fart".

    Dear ROTF - just remember the apostrophe in Christ'mas is always silent.

    Leane - I wouldn't mind if he came back. It's sorta like shooting slightly retarded fish in a barrel, but it's always good fun to smack someone who needs it.

    Ah, Spoonie ,,, I'd marry you in a rapidly pounding heartbeat, if only so you'd wear your devil costume for me.

    WTF - See, what that story needs is an ending like "... and one day, a pile of the mail fell on him and he was killed." Then we could clip the story, send it to Alanis Morrisette, and say "SEE? THIS is ironic! Now get it RIGHT!"

    And Squirl, I'm guessing "Michael" gets called lots worse.

    Amy

    Good on ya, Nilbo. That Michael don't know who he be messin' with.

    Bucky Four-Eyes

    My boss likes to engage phone solicitors in long conversations wherein he tortures them. I just don't have the patience to do more than hang up on the fuckers.

    JessicaRabbit

    But what if I am running low on snake oil? Did you ever think of that? hmmm??


    Poor dried out snakes...

    Bucky Four-Eyes

    Jess...somehow I don't think the snakes are EVER dried out around you.

    Bucky Four-Eyes

    OK, I'll try this again:

    Did all the snake talk scare everyone off? Or did everyone else have a hellish comment experience like I did yesterday.

    *insert bitching and whining here*

    marybishop

    So very funny!

    Poor Michael - you have to feel for the guy - he doesn't know how to automate his spam messages and must resort to hunt and cut and paste.

    To Michael: unless you want Nils' fans to hunt you down and cut and paste you, I'd not say a bad word against this man.

    Kristine

    That post gave me pee pee tingles. I LOVE IT WHEN MEN STAND UP AND FIGHT AGAINST THE SPAM.

    Nils, you're my hero.

    Dy

    Wow. I admit I linked to this under the title "If I weren't already happily married..."

    You are SO my new hero. All the other ones died.

    Monique

    You are a blogging hero! Good for you for calling out that spammer! It's about time someone struck back.
