Too tired to write anything thought provoking or challenging today… the new semester has started and I am full of the joys of actually TEACHING.. meeting new students, putting into practice all the improvements I’ve been dreaming up over the last couple of months. I’ll tell you more when I get time, but for today, just to tide you over, something I’ve been saving up for a rainy day.

Blogging is a wonderful thing, they said. You have to do it, build your PLN, make connections, be the teacher you can be, they shouted. What nobody said was “Spend hours cleaning out spam”. But, for health chuckles, here are a few of the ones I actually enjoyed.

The Non-Sequitur

Money is so intangible, its almost like a promise and a piece of paper

Its all in the manual they make you read before they download your being into those tiny bodies in those dark wombs

Hi First time skipped here on your site, found on Google. Thank you for the advice, I spoke with my girlfriend, and she agreed. We have spoken about it now, and it is slowly getting better

The Back-Handed Compliment

Good post, however only some of the points were actually treated really good, I think digging deep for the topic to make it more informative will really help, will be looking forward for more informative post than this. Will suggest some points which are to the best of my knowledge. This might help you bringing more information for all of us

It sounds like you’re creating problems yourself by trying to solve this issue instead of looking at why their is a problem in the first place

Not bad article, but I really miss that you didn’t express your opinion, but ok you just have different approach

Happened across your post while searching through yahoo. I understand the very first paragraph and its fantastic! I don’t have time to finish it now, but I have bookmarked your web page and will study the rest tonight

I was searching for a solution to my problem. This doesn’t solve my problem but it helped me somehow

The Odd Request

Could you please translate your site into Italian since I’m not so comfortable reading it in English?

I like that, (or rather, those bits I could easily read). I am afflicted with color blindness (tritanopia to be exact) and a lot of your web page is a bit of a strain on my eyes. I know it is my problem to deal with but it would be kind if you would take into account color blind visitors while doing the next web page re-working.

The Superlative

Simply, the information is truly the greatest on this worthwhile topic. I with your conclusions and will desperately look forward to your upcoming updates. Expressing thanks will not be sufficient, for the exceptional clarity in your writing.

Got any favourites of your own, my fellow bloggers? Or, even better, some teaching ideas to put them to work?

And just in case you don’t know why spam is called spam….
