So it's rare to see raging anger from me about anything.
Blogspam really pisses me off. I mean what the hell are these spammers thinking? Do they actually think the thinly veiled ads in the comments of blogs are fooling anyone?
Here’s a typical example:
"Hey, I saw your blog and I really like it. I'm thinking of starting a blog too. I think my blog will be about natural male enhancement. Sounds strange I know, but you would be surprised how much info there is about natural male enhancement. Anyway great job on your blog and please visit mine here."
What? You really like my blog? Okay then, I'll click on your link. NOT!
It's not that I have anything against advertising. I think it serves a valuable purpose in our economy. Hell, there would be no internet as we know it without advertising and marketing. But the blogspam format is just intellectually insulting.
I've made a practice of immediately deleting these offending posts, but I've decided to leave any blogspam comments to this post live for the purposes of illustration. Of course, I'll expect a cut of any revenue generated by these ads.
PS-I know you can turn on the verification to protect against spam, but it just seems like I shouldn't have to. I know, that's immature of me.
