Exeter Medical Center And Comment Spam

Channelling Victor Meldrew, I don’t believe it.

I’ve been comment spammed! By the Exeter Medical Center, which is apparently a medical institution in Abu Dhabi. For some reason, a random drooling clot within that organisation thought it would be a great idea to leave this comment on my post way back about the UAE health check. The comment is about feet rather than heads, which is odd because I could have sworn only someone resident within a gated medical institution specialising in the psychologically challenged would have thought comment spamming blogs was appropriate behaviour.

Directors’ Welcome
Friends and Colleagues,
Exeter Medical Center is a specialized Orthopaedic Center based in Abu Dhabi, the fast growing capital of United Arab of Emirates. Aligning with the UAE vision to continually improve healthcare services, EMC has been developed to provide world-class care in Orthopaedics.
In our dedication to provide Orthopaedic Healthcare Professionals with the latest advances in knowledge and training, Exeter Medical Center in association with the Edinburgh Foot & Ankle Unit, would like to invite you to join global leaders and colleagues from around the world in the fascinating city of Abu Dhabi for the Abu Dhabi International Foot & Ankle Symposium in Sheraton Hotel Abu Dhabi – UAE on February 23rd and 24th, 2012.

The Abu Dhabi International Foot and Ankle Symposium? Are you fatheaded spam-dumping gargoyles for real? Why would you think it appropriate to paste a notice about it as comment spam on my blog? Whatever next? Are you going to start wallpapering people’s cars with this breathless announcement? Perhaps tattooing people’s children with it, maybe on the forehead? Maybe you can make the above announcement into a t-shirt and have poor people wander the streets wearing it? You could staple it to people’s dogs. Or just kettle shoppers in supermarket aisles and shout foot messages at them?

How would you like it if I turned up in the middle of your stupid foot-fest and started handing out leaflets saying ‘Read Fake Plastic Souks, it’s good for your feet’? Or took over the microphone on your stage, grabbing it from some random toe-tickler to announce a special foot-lovers day on my blog? Maybe if I turned up at the inevitable (and under-attended) press conference you’re going to hold to talk toes and ‘this little piggy goes to market’ and told the media that Fake Plastic Souks was an official media partner of your festival of ponderous pediatric posturing?

You wouldn’t think that was so clever, would you?

So why did you think it was clever to dump comment spam on a blog, you parboiled cretins?

I think you made them a big favor by writing this post! Very funny though.
