To those leaving comment spam

There appear to be some people manually leaving comment spam here. It’s written to look relevant to the post it’s on, and includes a link to one of a series of near-identical web-sites obviously set-up just to get attention from search engines, eg a “Splog.”

Now hear this: If your comment leaves a URL that goes to a site that looks suspicious to me, I will be either removing the URL when I approve your comment, or at my exclusive discretion, deleting your comment altogether.

  1. Daniel,

    Given that you’re using WordPress I suggest you install the Akismet plugin (www.akismet.com) and Bad Behaviour (www.ioerror.us/software/bad-behavior/) the combination of the two almost eradicated spam on my site.

    Akismet tracks spam through a centrally administered blacklist and Bad Behaviour prevents spambots from accessing a site.

    Alex
