I get comment spam. It never makes it ‘live’ on my blog, however. Not once do those weaselly little blog comment spammers get their link up on my site . . . not for on millisecond – – they don’t get the exposure they’re looking for here. They don’t get the cache with the search engine bots . . . not once, never.
I have to ask – why do they persist? Why don’t they just move on to a blog that doesn’t have such tight spam controls? Their comments get thrown into moderation – – I have my WordPress set up so that I can mass-delete these little pesky twerps with one button click. The other night – there were 400 spam comments awaiting moderation — with one click, they were all gone.
I have to wonder – – don’t they notice that their spammed comments aren’t making it onto my site? After about… oh…comment number . .. say 200 – don’t they realize that their attempts are futile? I suppose, they probably don’t bother to look – – which makes them look even MORE stupid than they already are!
On another side note for WordPress – – a few people have asked me where I got the spell checker plugin for my blog. It’s right here. Have fun with it!
Although, I have to say that, sometimes – those misspelled words in comments often give me a chuckle. I might miss them!
