Do Not Recommend

An email came in over the transom, because it was a comment left on a ten year old (!) post, Range Report - Lee Enfield No. 4 Mk. 1.  I reproduce the email in full (other than the links) along with my commentary to promote mockery of the company that has employed comment spammers to, err, drum up business.

Thank you for sharing the knowledgeable blog with us

You are most welcome. 

I hope that you will post many more blog with us:-

Well, that's the plan. 

The AK-47 is a versatile firearm.

You hear what they did after the funeral of Mikhail Kalashnikov?  After a week they dug him up, washed him off, and put him back to work. 

It deserves just as versatile ammunition. And behold – here are 840 rounds of 7.62×39 by Prvi Partizan that you’ll be as happy to have at the range as you would during an altercation. This round features a 123 grain FMJ bullet.

I like Privi Partizan, and must rush to point out that this lovely spam was not from them, but rather from a place called "tactical ammo shop dot com".  If you hate Internet spam as much as I do, I encourage you to never buy anything from them.

I actually like Spam, but think that spammers can die in a crotch fire.

Borepatch, for all of the things I despise about Artificial Intelligence, its ability to sort out spam more on the first pass is one of them. I am actually surprised that companies think such tactics work - although, I suppose, for what they likely pay for these campgaigns, it very well might.

I'm with you on the spammers being killed in painful ways.

I second the sentiment, provided the crotch fire is initiated with thermite.

Sorry, I had to chuckle at the last part of your post.

I have to agree it's getting out of hand again, though.

You all be safe and God bless.

Concur about the spammers...

Hi, I'm Linda from warranty control. I've been trying to contact you about your car's extended warranty. Sine you have not been answering your phone, I have taken the unusual step of following you to this site.

We can't understand why you aren't answering the phone. We keep trying and trying, but you simply don't pick up. Except for the time that you DID pick up and accosted me with a stream of insults that would make a French aristocrat proud.

You can call me back at... on the other hand, never mind.

I like Aesop's comment. Sounds like a good idea to me.
