So now my article on comment spam has been hit by — you guessed it — comment spam!!

This would be hilarious — if it were not such a pain to deal with!

This guy left the following message, in part:

Hi ! Quite smart!——————————-Visit this sites for more
information about me:

This was followed by “Cialis Levitra online casino HENTERMINE – online Phentermine Pharmacy,” all with links, of course, plus another link for the author, who was a fellow by the name of “online casino.”

The article it was posted to is Comment Spam! — New Gambit (at least to me). Needless to say, the comment was not approved.

I never click on any kind of spam link or popup advertising. I always investigate anything that looks like comment spam and never approve it if it’s not a legitimate comment for any of my blogs.

Oh, on this one, I did click on one of these links and it took me to a page where it looked like it was running up a counter — which probably meant it was running up false clicks to artificially inflate it’s position or defraud an advertiser!
