Comment Spam

I've been resoundingly comment spammed today, so, with a little regret, I've turned on comment word verification, so anyone commenting will have to enter a word displayed to them in a picture. Apparently that foxes the comment spammers. Bloody nuisances. Not content with frying everyone's email, they're moving onto to attacking social software. The really annoying thing is that it must be worthwhile for them to do. My line of attack will be to never use a site, whomever it is, who has paid these leeches to spam people. The roll of honour so far:


  • www.a d v a n c e t a ct i c s.com

  • e x e r c i s e - e q u i p m e n t . e a a 4 7.com

  • www.d i a m o n d - e n g a g e m e n t - r i n g s.info

  • h e r p e s - z o v i r a x.com

  • www.W e C l o s e Y o u r S a l e s F o r Y o u.com

  • www.1 s t - i n - r a w - f o o d - d i e t.com

  • www.d e s k t o p p c s.ca

  • www.y e l l o w t r a v e l.info

  • www.b e s t p o k e r h a n d.com

  • www.p r o j e c t o r r e n t a l.info

  • www.n o r m i s m.org

  • www.b u g d o c t o r.com

  • www.m a r o c p u b.com



I might bung this into an opml doc and keep it online somewhere. Maybe we can get something going where we have a distributed opml reference to spammer paying sods. Might be useful in some way.

'Til the next time, keep safe.
