Russian Blog Stalkers Revisited…


This photo is from a while ago in Moscow, but the guy on the left looks like a blog hawker/stalker to me…


You know I get the occasional troll who says mean things for no apparent reason, right? Well my filter also catches those people in foreign countries who are trying to sell me something or gobble up my mailing list or well, actually I am not quite sure what they are after. But the earnest, broken English, Czechoslovakian-brother’s attempts at convincing me are very funny.


I wrote a post about it last year, and I still find these communiqués hilarious because it is obvious someone’s trying to pull a fast one, but it never translates properly from the Latvian or Russian or Chinese or wherever these scammers learned their first language. So I updated last year’s post with some new funny ones and I am starting my day laughing (and with a yen to buy a $996 Moncler jacket – yes I looked it up and I wonder if the Moncler folks know the Ruskies are hawking their wares to unsuspecting sobriety bloggers…).

And here’s the post from October 2014:

This morning when I signed on to write today’s post, I had 52 Comments from my cyber-stalker. Somehow a spam-like thingy has attached itself to my blog and every day I get a batch of annoyances that look like comments on a long ago blog post. We tried to get rid of it by adding security software to the blog, but then Laura sent a perfectly nice comment and got a nasty-gram from WordPress scolding her for sending “spam”. So we took it off and I am left with the administrative hassle of deleting what appears to be Russian junk mail.


I don’t know what they WANT. It’s like getting a ransom note saying, “WE HAVE YOUR WIFE!” without any instructions as to how to get her back. I think they want me to click on the listed email address with ill intent… I never click on internet popups or errant email addresses anymore (embarrassing porn-related lessons learned) and these comments are as suspicious as they are funny.


Here is an example:

Hi there i am kavin, its my first occasion to commenting anywhere
when i read this piece of writing i thought i could also make comment due to this
sensible paragraph.

Russian is the first language, right? This is the kind of writing that makes me cringe and look for a red pen. I picture a room full of would-be internet crooks in the shadow of the Kremlin, trying to write enticements in broken English (with no Russian equivalent for the phrase “blog post”) and wondering why their plot is going awry.

Here’s another one:

Hi my loved one! I wish to say that this article is amazing,
great written and include almost all vital infos.
I would like to look more posts like this.

And my current favorite:

Ahaa, its nice dialogue regarding this article at this place at this weblog dude,

Why me?


Today I’m not drinking because I am still (in 2015) trying to foil a Russian plot…


How come you’re not drinking?
