Lately I started to receive a lot of comments on my blog that are getting past the spam filters. The spammers are getting more and more ingenious. Wouldn’t it be great if they funneled all of that energy they use into creating spam into actually doing some good in the world?
The newest ways I see spam comments is that they write a very short, concise generic comment, usually trying to play towards your ego. Here is an example of a comment I recently received from a spammer.
“An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a friend who was conducting a little research on this. And he actually ordered me lunch because I found it for him… lol. So let me reword this…. Thanks for the meal! But yeah, thanx for spending the time to discuss this topic here on your internet site.” I always check the site that it is linked to and many a time, it is some site selling some crap. In this case, the site listed didn’t even exist. The want you to accept the comment so that they can come back as a recognized commenter and load your blog comments with a bunch of spam.
So if you are going to leave a comment on any of my posts, and it is a generic comment like I stated above, I am sorry, but I may mark the comment as Spam. So please, if you are going to leave a comment, please be sure to place something in the comment specific to the post you are commenting about so I know it is not spam, and if you commented on my blog and it never appeared, then it was too generic and I marked it as spam. Sorry.
