Dear Spammers,

I don't speak Chinese. Not one little bit. I enjoy our local Chinese restaurant immensely, but that hasn't helped with language acquisition.  If you really want to sell a product, recruit a visitor to your website, or infect a Nebraskan's computer, you're going to have to do it in English. 

Incomprehensibly yours,

LOL! My spammin' friends are Russian (or use a language based on a Russian-looking alphabet, anyway). At first I thought it was creepy, now I just roll my eyes and delete. Sometimes I wonder if I'm somehow signed on to some Russian message board or something. Not that I would know it if I were. In any case, they sure don't give up! :)

So I'm not the only one. I get lots of comments on my Visually Impaired Homeschoolers blog in alphabets I don't recognize. I just delete, but I was wondering if I was targeted for some reason and thought about shutting the website down. But now I know it's not just me. Thanks for sharing that information.

Yep. I get them too. Both on my email and occasional blog comments. The oddest thing is I get very little non-Chinese spam.

I guess it's not called the world wide web for nothing .... :)
