Here’s another spam comment I got. Interestingly enough, the comment is RIGHT ON BRAND. It is a part of the conversation… it complements what I’ve said, and fits in nicely. Can you see the problem?
The post was How to find a job in a recession… and the comment was right on, right! Here’s my problem:
- Look at the name: California Mortgage | Home Loan | Refinance … that doesn’t look very personable.
- The URL, findmyloanonline.com, has nothing to do with my topics. I can get around that, maybe, but the clincher was the email address:
- firstname.lastname@example.org … if this had someone’s name, I *might* have let it through, since it was on-topic.
Alas, I get so much spam on my blog I don’t even look at the spam folder anymore. I simply go in every few months and delete all spam. Soon enough I’ll have over 500,000 spam comments that Akismet has caught:
This comment is a big FAIL!
