Recently I came across a collection of comments online that were are evidently part of a comment generation script. Fascinated by this, I wrote some code to select the random words / phrases and piece them together into their intended stupid sentences.

As an example of how this works, have a look at the following line:

Woah! I’m really (loving\enjoying\digging) the theme of this (site\website\blog).

By running a script that randomly selects a word from each set of brackets and then replaces each set of brackets and their content with their respectively selected word, nine different (though similar) sentences can be produced from the single line. The combinations are shown below:

Woah! I’m really loving the theme of this site.
Woah! I’m really loving the theme of this website.
Woah! I’m really loving the theme of this blog.

Woah! I’m really enjoying the theme of this site.
Woah! I’m really enjoying the theme of this website.
Woah! I’m really enjoying the theme of this blog.

Woah! I’m really digging the theme of this site.
Woah! I’m really digging the theme of this website.
Woah! I’m really digging the theme of this blog.

Obviously, the more word options and brace sets per line, the more combinations that can be produced. The posts below are randomly generated from lines in this way:

1.
"I want to to thank you for this very good read!! I definitely enjoyed every little bit of it. I have you saved as a favorite to look at new things you post?"
2.
"What's up, I log on to your blog on a regular basis. Your writing style is awesome, keep it up!"
3.
"A person necessarily lend a hand to make severely posts I'd state. That is the first time I frequented your web page and to this point? I amazed with the research you made to create this actual publish extraordinary. Magnificent process!"
4.
"Everyone loves what you guys are up too. This type of clever work and coverage! Keep up the superb works guys I've incorporated you guys to my blogroll."
5.
"Way cool! Some very valid points! I appreciate you writing this post plus the rest of the site is extremely good."

This is not intended as a how-to guide on how to be a spammer, but rather to inform on the sneaky way the comments are generated.

Note that all the comments are positive and complimentary / congratulatory with the hope of the recipient believing they are hand-typed, feeling flattered and allowing the comments to appear on their blog. Usually they are posted with a back-link to the spammer’s website which is the whole purpose.
