A Pet Peeve: Sp@m Comments

Seriously, are there marketers out there who genuinely believe this type of promotion actually works?

Step 1 Go to (random blog)
Step 2 Leave grammatically incorrect, ingenuously flattering, entirely generic comment - sans identity
Step 3 Include link to (p0rn site, etc) as a shortened URL and ask for a courtesy visit

Examples:
Thanks for your support on my weight loss? Also, maybe Google Translate needs an update?

I'm pretty sure the only points I was trying to make in that post was that fresh fruit is yummy and my kids are cute. 

To be clear, I am absolutely giddy when any of you comment on the blog, which is what makes the fake ones so much more of a let down.

What are some of your blogging pet peeves?
