  3. … 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!
