How not to spam a blog…


Some spam is ridiculously easy to spot. So, if you’re thinking of spamming this – or any other blog, here are a few tips…

  • Your name is not “real sex lesbians”. In fact, nobody’s name is “real sex lesbians”. I don’t even have to research this on Google to know it.
  • Your name is also not the name of your site, with all the words spelled properly and with spaces between them.
  • Don’t post six comments, two minutes apart, under different names, on different posts, using the same comment text and the same website address. Even if you have tried a different name.
  • Changing numbers for letters – spelling it “v1agra” or “c1al1s” doesn’t work. The last person it actually fooled then went on to paint an elaborately crafted angel until the bell rang for Vespers and got a clip round the ear from Abbot Knorfric, who reminded him that this is the 12th Century and we’re far too intelligent to fall for that old gag any more…
  • Speaking of which, I do not want or need a bigger “P3N15”, nor do I believe pills bought over the Internet would achieve it even if I did. And I’m not sure you’re a real doctor, either, now that I think about it…
  • If even your domain name isn’t suitable for children, but my blog is. Well, you do the math.
  • iPod or Zune? Good question. Just not remotely what I’ve discussed on any post on my blog, ever. Still, nice try…
  • You may not be able to add my blog in your RSS reader. But the four links to various “discount” shops for well known brands make me suspicious (“Louise Vuitton”? “Uggg Boots”? Pleeease…)

Well, I hope that’s made a few of you laugh. What we bloggers and webmasters have to put up with, eh?

Night night…
