I deleted one point four megabytes of spam from my comments text file last night. 1.4 meg. In a text file.
Why oh why oh why? And the thing is, this takes effort to do. I really don’t believe it’s automated – although I’m sure someone will tell me if I’m wrong – which means someone is actually taking the time to go in, open the comments, and leave the spam. Over and over and over again. Can it really be that lucrative to leave hundreds of comments in the archives of a barely-read blog? If it’s an actually person, they have spent at least a couple of hours over the last two months, leaving these things. What kind of return can they possibly get? Is this the result of all those anti-spam email bills?
Can’t these people just find normal jobs?
