In: Blogging

2 Jun 2004

I’ve been getting hundreds of comment spam but this particular one was different because it was meant to appear like a TrackBack ping at a cursory glance.

A new comment has been posted on your blog redemption in a blog, on entry

By posting the subject and URL aren’t you just completing the spammers job?

Yeah that’s really iritating. The amount of spam comments on my blog has been increasing faster than ever lately, quite annoying. I wish these people would just stop, and leave us alone…it’s not like we let the comments stay.
