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 needed to thank you for this great read!! I absolutely enjoyed every little bit of it. I have you bookmarked to look at new things you post?"
2.
"Its like you learn my mind! You appear to grasp a lot approximately this,such as you wrote the book in it or something. I believe that you just can do with some percent to pressure the message house a little bit, however other than that, this is wonderful blog. A great read. I'll certainly be back."
3.
"I'm not sure where you're getting your info, but great topic. I needs to spend some time learning much more or understanding more. Thanks for magnificent info I was looking for this info for my mission."
4.
"Heya i am for the first time here. I found this board and I find It really useful & it helped me out much. I hope to give something back and aid others like you aided me."
5.
"Hello, i think that i saw you visited my web site so i came to "return the favor".I am attempting to find things to enhance my site!I suppose its ok to use a few of your ideas!"

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.
