One of my photos

Plausible spam

November 19th, 2009 · Posted by Skuds in Life · No Comments · Life

I have been having a few comments here that turn up in the spam queue for my attention that have been extremely plausible.   Spam comments are normally very generic at their best, but more likely to be totally unrelated to the post they are on, and thus very easy to spot, but this new crop is very good.The comments are all very short, totally related to the post they are on, and in some cases even make a valid point.  Coincidentally, they are all from youg women with their own domains.  Domains that consist of a single page of a gallery of semi-nude photos – all of which link to an online dating site.

If I only had one of these comments from one person I might choose to believe that somebody who like to make a few pennies on the side also has an interest in whatever random topic I am going on about, but I refuse to believe that several of them are all taking a sudden interest in my literary efforts.

The comments themselves are harmless enough.  I am almost tempted to let some of them through, except that could open the floodgates.
