I just want to say I am beginner to blogging and really savored you’re page. Likely I’m going to bookmark your website . You definitely come with really good articles and reviews. Thanks a bunch for sharing your webpage.
I deleted the email information because it was for some weird site I wouldn’t visit on a bet. Doesn’t this just prove my point? “Good articles and reviews” – come on now. I’m talking about the ways to tell a message is spam or phishing. Okay, I’ll accept that could be called a “good article”, but a good review? The way I frequently rip into the sender’s abuse of the English language could hardly be called a good review.
“Likely I’m going to bookmark you’re website”. Only “likely”, not “definitely”? Do me a favour and don’t bother. And learn to understand the difference between homophones: “you’re” is an abbreviation for “you are”. The possessive form is “your”.
I suspect this message was from a spambot because I can’t believe any human would be so stupid as to send spam as a comment on a blog ripping into spam. Oh well, it gave me something to write about.
Enjoy your day and remember to hug an artist – we need love too.
