Meta: A Message to a Comment Spammer 0

From the spam commenter:

Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips for first-time blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

Yes indeedy-do. And it will continue to eat your spam comments and spit them back out.

Hoick! Ptui!


The spam was not in the faux comment itself; that seemed innocent enough, like the quotation above. It was in the commenter’s (purported) email address, which linked to a hinky website.

It was not the first comment linking to said hinky website. It was more like the eleventy-first. And it will certainly not be the last.

Fortunately, I have software that catches the creeps and quarantines them so I can evaluate (and delete) them at my leisure. You have no idea how many creeps it has caught since I first blundered into the blogosphere a decade and a half ago. Heck, neither do I! But it’s well into the hundreds, if not the thousands.

Said software has served me and my two or three regular readers well.
