The blog gets a lot of spam, I mean, A LOT. Usually, they are trying to create links to piggy back off of some post for the purposes of selling something. They are always long rambling compliments about something, but they never actually make sense. Either they are oddly translated or complimenting a “very informative” blog post that is not at all actually informative. They are usually generated somewhere in Russia/Ukraine (oh ya, I can see that info) and really there is no harm, I have a filter that grabs almost all of them and if any sneak through, I just delete them. They used to be in Cyrillic, but lately, they are in English. Last night, I got this spam blog comment:
“The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.”
I guess it’s a new approach, fresh idea, but really? So funny. The comment was about the Frances Farmer Style Icon post. The website they included with their comment was not working and the email wasn’t active (oh yes, I can see that info too), so I am confused as why? Are they moving on from trying to get us to buy things and/or steal our identity and/or hijack our computers to pure internet snark? I fully endorse snark. I am pretty sure that is the sole purpose for Twitter.
