Spam, spam, spam, spam…

October 27, 2004

Over the last week, I’ve been bombarded a bit by comments spam.

“What is comment spam?” you might ask? That’s where person or persons unknown decide to advertise by entering information into the comments on a post.

Now, don’t get me wrong; I’m not against advertising. I may add a Google AdSense here someday or other solution. But, I’d be adding it, I’d be the beneficiary and I’m the one responsible. By these nimrods adding their advertisements as comments on my posts, they are getting any benefits and I’m taking the responsibility and paying for the privilege.

Or, at least, they would be getting the benefits – however, I have comment moderation on plus I run the WordPress Blacklist plugin so most comments are checked, found wanting and deleted. The ones that aren’t are reviewed by me and if legit, approved. If not legit, they are added to the blacklist (IP, email, word algorithm) and don’t ever make it back.

This is MY site. My rules. So there.
