    I ran a scrapebox blast last night and today i went to check some of the live links. one of my comments was "this post is interesting. do you have facebook? lets add each other as friends" and then the blog owner had replied with her facebook link.
    some other spammer had written things like "this was amazing." you know, the typical stuff and she had replied "Thanks!"
    I felt so bad.

    Take it a step further, find a way to monetize the situation.

    Maybe she is a member here and she is just trying to make the interaction seem as natural as possible. If she is real, you probably put a smile on her face. The only way you could make her feel bad is if you did another blast that said "LOL just kidding your blog sucks."

    Unless the customer is a SB noob and thought spamming his blog, would get him backlinks too ;)

    means your comments are good...or is it just:

    "nice post I like it" ?

    Yeah i know what you mean, you just have to turn a blind eye for that.

    I had a apprentice (who backstabbed me ofcourse after i teached some stuff for him...), i was looking for his site which he bought for high price which he took off cause "it was too much work and hard" later on, loser...

    Well i noticed that he had alot of spam comments in his site, he was answering to those spam comments! i felt little weird cause we have power to make people think that their site is more worth than just backlinks we are hungry for, like asking some kid that can he borrow his $150 which he was saving for new console for over a year now, and we come and act like friend, ask if we can borrow that money and he likes us and he gives that money... and he wont never hear from us again.(?)

    Overthinking i say i do :) :yumyum:

    Something similar happened to me once.. one of my comments was something like, "Is the site displaying properly for anyone else? It's screwed up in my browser". Somehow I stumbled on it a while later, to find the owner had approved it and replied, apologising and telling me they will try to fix it.

    what sucks the most is that she will wonder why all those people that she replied to are not adding her. she might think they went to her facebook page and thought she was ugly or something.
    also it just feels bad that there are still some innocent people out there...I know this person who still doesnt know the difference between scam and spam. every time i try to explain what spam is, she thinks it means the same thing as scam.

    Haha. I run into similar comments being spammed at my blogs. I just ignore them.

    Though, I do feel bad for the whitehat bloggers who aren't aware of these types of blasts.

    This has to be the dumbest comment I have ever read anywhere.

    You will see things differently when you are out of High School. If money is the only driving force in your life, you will FAIL.

    I don't check them,let's be honest we've probably all really placed some stupid comments(unwittingly) in the wrong places e.g a site about people dying from cancer and sadly I bet they've had comments,like "this place rocks" " or Your site is very entertaining I'm gonna tweet it to my friends right now about it".

    I'd rather not know,sometimes I use find in notepad and type in stuff like that and bin the urls,of course I'm also scanning for words like sex,ride etc but it's nice to be nice as well.
    My dad died of cancer couple of years back I know the pain,so I guess that's why I used cancer as an example.The thing is if I had a site like that and got a comment like that I'd know it was someone here using scrapebox,99% of the population wouldn't.

    Don't check your links!

    Hey he has a point. As someone with a decent sized forum, it drives me nuts all these mother fucker spammers signing up. And here I am paying people to do the same thing lol, so I know how those people feel!

    Seems like she is smart enough to promote interaction on her site!

    Google loves pages that are updated frequently!
