Spam goes good on sandwiches

It seems as if the Spam Bots were busy spamming instead of eating turkey because, boy, did I have a lot of spam to “un-approve.” You see, WP catches the spam so it goes to a land where it must wait for me to swoop in and say “No, SPAM. You can not play on my blog.”

By the way, any comments with even one link in them go to that same land. So, comments that ask about where all the comments are are funny but not needed.

Anyway. I just don’t get spam. Seriously. Like, how is leaving a post in someone’s archives about a certain pharmaceutical product going to help v*i*a*g*r*a get more customers?? Do people get paid to do this spam? Do the comments really bring in that many customers?

I hate it how they try and be all cute, like “Good blog….check out this link about On*line Cas*inos. ”
I also enjoy the ones about um….sexual things. Or even weirder are the ones that have a blog link, but when I go to the link, there is no blog. And these also have the “Nice blog” comments.

Know what? Next time I want to consolidate a d*ebt, I’m gonna tell the hubs “Hey! I saw this on my blog comments! We should totally go with this company over something respectable because it is on a blog and well, it must be true.”

    I just emailed you the password. Let me know if you don’t get it. I think the one I sent before died in the land of lost emails of a horrible death. I believe something with arsnic? Anyway, hope it gets to you!

    I love WP for that reason. I mean, stupid spam, but at least it catches it. I’ve found that if I remember to turn off comments after a few days, I get a lot less spamorama ding dongs. For real, who is going to go with a mortgage company that posts on an October 2003 post with “Hey, you have been a*ppR*ov ED for 3 point fi*ve m-or*?tgag/e, call asa*p!”??

    The main reason spammers spam blogs is to get a higher Google rating. Since the more sites that link to you the higher you get listed on Google. I am so sick of spammers, but WP does a decent job at keeping them out.
