Quickly glancing through this blog’s spam queue to find false positives, I observed an out-of-place verbosity that would make Erin McKean bounce. You can see it contains words that the typical blog comment spammer would need to look up in a dictionary.

I instantly knew the comment was spam but I wondered if a link to neopia.org (not linked above) was real.
What would you think?
It looked legit to me — at first. While a detailed clicking adventure would show spelling errors and lack of comprehension, it was clear after a 30-second glance that the Neopia website was about some fantasy game and people were sought to buy NeoPoints to develop their game characters and become NeoMillionaires.
That’s when I headed to the NeoPets link referenced in that spam comment.
Notice the Nickelodeon link in the topmost navigation bar?
Want to guess which website is advertising the real deal and which is potentially swindling unsuspecting web visitors? Wanna guess why you can buy NeoPoints on neopets.com? Could it be that Neopia.org is fake?
Don’t be fooled.
