Who the hell is “Piter Kokoniz, from Latvia”, and why would he want to post the same comment on over 924,000 blogs when he’s clearly not trying to sell anything?
The weird bit is that PK has a stalker called Raiul Baztepo, who frequently comments yes there is a pattern here, on the same blog posts, and they both use forms of words that are so bland as to be suitable to just about any theme, and be unremarkable at the same time. A study in blandness, you might think. Yet there is a sort of vulnerable appeal in their form of words that is beguiling enough that the spammers often receive kind, welcoming replies to their comments.
I think it says something good about human nature that blog authors show such compassion and respect for their visiting commenters.
Here’s Piter’s schtick:
I am Piter Kokoniz. Just want to tell, that your posts are really interesting
And want to ask you: what was the reasson for you to start this blog?
Sorry for my bad english:)
Piter Kokoniz, from Latvia
Raiul Baztepo comments:
Very Interesting post! Thank you for such interesting resource!
PS: Sorry for my bad english, I´v just started to learn this language 😉
Your, Raiul Baztepo
They are no slouches, these two. Piter has racked up 924,000 comments, and Raiul is trailing along behind him with a score of only 11,500.
And people respond to their bland blandishments, too. Is this perhaps the point of the spamming? Are these two (presumably completely fictitious people) trying to collect thousands of sympathetic blog owners URLs? And how could they possibly profit from the bloggers responses?
