Almost daily, BCfamily.ca receives comments from readers. Many are spammed comments from mysterious pharmaceutical companies, shoe manufacturers and other obscure service providers  in the United States.  Most of these spam comments are long strings of nonsensical gibberish.  Who are these people?  Why do they do this? Do they really think that these comments will be approved?

Very nice site. Is it yours?

Well – ugh – no. I’m just confirming comments  because I happened upon this admin section of bcfamily.ca by accident.

Great site. A lot of useful information here. I’m sending it to some friends!

Oh please do, but not to your spammer friends.

Good! What a very wonderful place! Only 1 impression:Should you add some images, it would be easiler [sic] to adhere to!

So now we’re receiving tips from spammers?

Pretty nice post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed browsing your blog posts. In any case I’ll be subscribing to your feed and I hope you write again soon!

Comments are the life blood of a website and the more you have the more you can start to see how your readers are engaging with the content on your site. You can have all the readers in the world – all over the world in fact – but without comments, the site isn’t reaching its full potential.

So leave your comments and lots of them.  But please  – if you’re selling shoes or pharmaceuticals, give us a miss!
