Sifting the Spambox Again

Sometimes i wonder about ya'll, my audience. . . .

Seldom do i receive any comments that don't go into the spambox.

They all do seem to come from real people, and it also seems to help if i publish them like this.
These comments certainly
do not relate in any particular way to the posts they're attached to.

Pretty! This has been an extremely wonderful article. Thank you for providing these details. Feel free to surf to my blog post
fantastic publish; very informative.  I wonder why the other experts of this sector do not realize this.  You should proceed your writing.  I am confident you have a huge reader's base already!  Also visit my site. . . .
Hello there, just became alert to your blog through Google, and found that it is truly informative. I am gonna watch out for brussels. I will appreciate if you continue this in future. Many people will be benefited from your writing. Cheers! Also visit my blog post. . . .
Admiring the committment you put into your site and the detailed information you offer.  It's nice to come across a blog every once in awhile that isn't the same outdated rehashed material.  Wonderful read!  I've bookmarked your sites and I'm adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.  Here is my . . . .

Four posts in as many days, which seem to be from the same person.  At least they go to the same blog, which has one post total, from several years ago.
Sorry, i do not wish to send you traffic.  i know it won't help my site, and it may harm my visitors for all i know.  You give me innocuous compliments and not your name.  Brussels?  i see no connection to the post you commented on.  Surely that's a huge red flag.
But i do appreciate your kind words.

And there's this one:
    There's definately a lot to learn about this issue. I really like all the points you've made. My blog -

At first i was really excited.  This commenter, while anonymous, claims int its text to be associated with a famous blog/online magazine.  Even gave his/her name within text.  And people do have legitimate reasons to not sign in.  HOWEVER, MyGuy pointed out, anyone can make a claim like that.  And, without a signature in the right place, i have a name that could have been put there by anyone who noticed maybe that i read this blog/online mag, and wanted to impress me with the fatuous comment.
i think i will let it appear, but i'm not so naively excited.

Sorry; i will try later; the colors did NOT work as planned.  i meant to make the text of each different proposed comment in a different color with NO highlighting, but mouse strayed over highlight button!
