A cascade of apologetic messages, sent with good intention, that end up looking quite spammy.
When a person adds a comment to another person's blog post and makes a mistake. As their only channel of communication is by writing comments, they then try and write another message to correct that mistake.

But, then, make a further mistake in the second comment. So, they write another one to apologise and so on.

The plethora of comments end up looking a bit spammy.

Also applies to social network 'walls'.
