Just had to share a status update.
The previous blog posting was a response to the daily prompt and a timely release of frustration at spammers knocking at my comments door.
I copied and pasted actual content from a nine page spam message caught in my comments filter. Since that posting, there have been 37 additional (and counting) attempted comment postings to that post from other spammers.
- The addresses are clearly to sites trolling for sales or random hits.
- The message text matches the phrasing and patterns of the original message. I suppose multiple spammers are using the same software to generate their messages.
- The hits are snagging on that post like flies to honey.
- I used no tags on the post, but there appears to have been so many keywords in it that bots are finding it with regularity.
