The new way to spam...

Unbelievable...

I check my e-mail the other day and I get what are the first two comments on my blog that I have received in months. Of course, I am pretty surprised, since it has been at least as long since I have posted anything, so there is immediate suspicion to begin with...

But I open the e-mail to find that someone has posted STOCK ADVERTISING on my blog as a COMMENT....

seriously -- are you guys that ridiculously desperate to get your impressions that you will resort to such flagrant deception? And to what end? Even if for some reason I actually read the e-mail you underhandedly got me to open, do you actually think there is a snowballs chance in hell that I might actually buy into the stock, or any product for that matter, that you happened to dish at me in this manner?

the nerve...

I'd tell you readers to scroll down to see the offending propaganda, but I've deleted it - I wouldn't want to be responsible for poisoning others in this way.

hehe, you readers... I don't think I've had any of those in awhile.
anyway...

Comment spam isn't so much aimed at personal bloggers as search engines. The more google finds links to certain pages or content associated with certain names, the higher the page rank when someone searches for 'Stock Advertising' or whatever. Google came up with solution for this but the spam continues since some software is not yet up to par.

Glad to see you're back at the bloggin. Thanks to RSS I notice new posts right away :)
