Trawling The Web.

I have just received a comment from prettylady33 on my post "Life Is So Much Better Without Valium." On 5 July 2011

‘’I totally agree that sleeping pills should be taken for emergency purpose only. I have been taking temazepam too to help me calm myself and go to sleep. But I only use it occasionally or when I really need it.’’

I was happy to meet someone new so I clicked on the name and was taken to a Temazepam sales site and not to prettylady33 blog.

Prettylady33 is probably just one of the names this site is using to trawl the web looking for references to Temazepam.

Then they leave a comment which leads back to their sales website, I was surprised as I have not encountered this before.

I never conceived that anyone would do that, but it makes sense that websites pushing medicines would resort to trawling.

Funny how things turn out as this was not going to be what I posted about today,

I find that posting daily means no problem finding something to write about every day.

Quite often I will hear something on the radio, or in newspapers but today I did not have to look further than my inbox for my post.

Hi Herrad,

I get a lot of "comments" on my blog from companies touting CCSVI procedures. Thank goodness for spam filters!

Hi Richie,
Thanks for the translation, that puts it into the right context.

Hi Karen,
Thank goodness indeed for spam filters, poor you getting medical spam.

Hi Rhapsody,
You are right about spammers doing anything for money.

Thanks to you 3 dear friends for coming by and leaving your comments.

When I was on AOL blogging years ago, I once got a comment offering to sell me "inexpensive" sex toys.

Ah, the diversity.~Mary

Richie's comment: Too funny!

I really hate the idea of companies and spammers trolling our blogs. It's really annoying.

Hi Mary,
Cut price sex toys what a bargain!
There are some strange spasms around.

Hi KP,
I agree it is a strange way to get more sales.

Hi Webster,
You are right it is annoying to have them trawling.
I got another today turned out to be spam from a marketer s I deleted it right away.

Thanks you 3 dear friends for coming by.
Love,
