Whoa there, that's a lot of spam…

August 29, 2005

Well, I’ve been in Seattle, Victoria and Vancouver all weekend and what do I come back to? About 150 comment/trackback spams taken care of by Spam Karma. On the one hand, I’m really glad that Spam Karma took care of them all; on the other hand, I’m wondering why the spammers suddenly decided to turn their spam engines on my blog…

Anyone know how you get onto the spammer’s lists? Or better yet, how to get off? πŸ™‚

    How to get onto spammer’s lists: write a popular blog with a lot of readers who will view the spam.

    How to get off of spammer’s lists: write a boring or unpopular blog.

    Disclaimer: may take 3-4 months to process any changes.

    A friendcomplained about the same on her blog, maybe a summer-end spam surge or that spammers have forgotten the laws that curtail their activities.

    if someone knew an instant fix to get you off spam lists they’d make an absolute fortune πŸ˜‰

    The blog service I use has word verification functionality built into it’s comments area. What’s going on is spambots randomly going from blog to blog, littering “comments” areas. A word verification function would kill it. It did the trick for me. Maybe plaxo’s IT dept./blog designers could come up with that trick?

    Best of luck…
