Damn Spam
January 7, 2007

NOTE:
Umm, apparently some folks got worried after this posted. This really is truly spam that I am getting on a regular basis right now -- and it's the only spam that's "clean" enough that I can post it here in order to whine piteously about the amount of spam I get a day.

I would guess I'm getting about 300 spam comments a day now. At least 90-95% of it never hits the blog as my spam filters are catching it ... but I also do a quick review of spam comments a couple of times a day in order to make sure that legitimate comments are not accidentally deleted. Basically, I'm sick of the spam ... and I do find these recent spam comments particularly disturbing and heinous.

I suppose I posted them so that other people can populate their spam filters with key phrases and maybe this dude will have to switch to some other spam tactic. Then again, maybe I'm just egging the guy on, I dunno.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

First came the commenter called Tramadol. Then it was Sten. Now it's Twistys and ... more honestly, I feel sure, Hot Girls.

My mind is like a complete blank, but so it goes. Basically nothing seems important, but I guess it doesn't bother me. I've just been letting everything wash over me , but pfft. I haven't been up to anything. Such is life. I can't be bothered with anything.
I've just been staying at home waiting for something to happen, but I don't care. Basically nothing seems worth thinking about. I can't be bothered with anything recently.
I feel like an empty room, but eh. Nothing seems worth doing. I haven't gotten much done today.
I've just been letting everything happen without me these days. I've pretty much been doing nothing , but oh well. More or less nothing notable going on to speak of. I just don't have anything to say these days, but maybe tomorrow.

PLEASE, I BEG of you. Leave me alone. I have key phrases in my spam filters. You're not really getting your links to hit my site. Please, leave me alone. I can't stand your sorrowful existence anymore.

Movable Type, Six Apart, I BEG of you, please, help with some spam plugins. The nospam ones for 3.2 aren't enough. We need a true accessible captcha plugin. (Yes, I just took the plugins survey and said the same thing there.)

And yes, I know I need to upgrade to 3.3x ... I've downloaded it ... I'm working up the nerve to do it. Of course, your upgrade instructions SUCK, so thank goodness for Learning Movable Type!!!

Meanwhile, Mr. Tramadol, sir?
SHUT THE FOOK UP!

Thank you, that is all.

UPDATE:
More of these damn things since I posted this even.

I just don't have anything to say. Not that it matters. Eh. I've just been staying at home doing nothing, but I don't care. That's how it is.

ARGH!!!!

I think the spammer dude should just pull the trigger and end his pitiful existence...but that's just me.

Can you add in akismet ? It operates as a stand alone as well as a WP plug in.

Even then you have to wade through to check it hasn't caught legitimate comments.

If it is any consolation your spam is far more interesting than mine - which is currently flavoured *mobile home insurance*

Red Monkey says: Sadly, I've got askimet loaded as well ... I'm not sure that it's doing a lot, though, it does seem to be identifying a few of the generic style comments that were getting through before. It's CRAZY, I tell ya! CRAZY!

That is really bizarre spam that you are getting. Is it actually spam, or is this person really writing to you?

Red Monkey says: Sadly, from the odd links that it goes to ... I'm pretty sure it's all the same spammer and trying to get links out to a bunch of spammer/SEO sites.

This is a test...just a test of the anti-spam network.

That totally sucks.

Sorry to hear you are getting so hit by spam. Any idea how the spammer found you?

Just when I was getting tired of the Nigerian Businessman, I find out about this. What's sad is that it doesn't sound all of that terribly different that the average emo kid blog...perhaps the smammer feels defeated in his efforts and this is his way of letting you know he too cries himself to sleep at night?

I was going to say that I have nothing to say but I'm afraid your spam filter will eat me.

Could be fun though...to be eaten by a spam filter and you will find my measly comment weeks later.

*hug*
