BlogSpam: How to keep yourself amused

Posted on by Mike Evans

I'm really not sure if I'm doing you a favour or not by filtering out blog spam. The stuff these people (or maybe these bots) come up with is often hilarious nonsense, almost certainly in pidgin English (which is not surprising given the Chinese source of most spam) and I feel I am depriving you.

Occasionally these guys get ahead of themselves such as:

Invariably these gems of comments include a helpful hyperlink which takes you direct to their on-line store where they can attempt to flog you rip-off designer gear from Coach, Ugg and others. I'm almost sorry I don't publish them.
