Back in the day I used to hate spam comments and I would even downvote them or try to explain that what they are doing is wrong and so on. But lets be real for a minute, spammers don't give a flying F about what's considered abusive behavior, as long as they can squeeze some profits they will continue spamming away. Only people with big downvotes have a chance to teach them a lesson. As time passed I've learned that it can be pretty funny to reply to such comments in the most idiotic way possible, especially if others join in on the fun.
Even if something is annoying there are ways to turn it into something that brings smiles to people and that's a lesson that I learned for the first time on Hive.
