An example of really bad marketing: spam is rude

Some idiot bombarded my weblog with 44 copies of the same comment to one of my post yesterday. This is the main part of the comment that was left: This is an automatic test probe for demonstrates that it’s possible to break trencaspammers captcha plugin for WP and this plugin does not serve for anything, […]

Canned spam

I’m trying a different way to deter spambots from trying to post junk about their usual casino websites and “texas-hold ’em” links. My weblog was getting hammered lately so I had to tighten my comment moderation. It was always one of my posts getting hit. I closed the ability to post comments to that one […]

Spam, egg, sausage, and spam

One word. SPAM! Both of these were left to the same entry […]
