On Spam again….

Yet another spam comment has been stopped in its tracks by the trusty spam filter.  A spam comment has been blocked yet there has been no further viewing of the site.  So, this leads me to ponder on the how and why of the spamming in comments action….is there some little geek out there who has written a program that allows all these spam comments to be blasted away willy nilly at any site, whether the perp has viewed the site or not?

I don’t understand why they would waste their time devising such a program when there are much more exciting things out there that they could be doing with their time.

On my more trafficked site I received three suspected spam yesterday – all in the same format, they were promoting various forms of online gambling.  They appeared to have all sourced from the same culprit as their style and form was identical except for the game they promoted.

Get over it, geeks…. you are consigned to the trash!
