I’ve been getting the saddest SPAM lately. I know — sad spam? Yes, really. At least, it makes me sad. Again, I know — really? Yes.
“This blog is great!” — trustedarticles.com
Akismet caught dozens of others from commenters who started out, “I love your site!” or similar, and that isn’t counting the hundreds of variants on “Great site! Visit mine: [insert string of URLs here].” Several of the comments also said, “I’m definitely bookmarking you!” In fact, when I got a real comment that said that, I almost deleted it without thinking.
Who doesn’t want to hear that visitors love their blog? The spammers are just plain mean.
