spam spam spam spam spam spammity spam!

You may have noticed some spam around here. I've got a professional spammer from Beijing, China harassing me. I'm not sure why. He (or she) may think I have something to do with a commercial public storage space, and therefore high blog traffic, or it may just be a random thing. S/he is definitely a professional, using a Google search that goes directly to the "post comments" page. Very interesting (if a trifle inconvenient for me).
So, I've changed my comment settings to disallow anonymous comments. That should put an end to it. If not, I'll step it up to moderated comments for a while. The spammer will move on, and we can go back to having an open community here. :)

In the meantime, amuse yourselves with Monty Python's Spam Song...

What do you have without spam in it?

Uh, Janiece, I think Anne might be a little, well annoyed if you make her manhood grow in girth and pleasure. Especially as she doesn't have said manhood.

Just sayin'.

Michelle, there's eggs, bacon, sausage and spam. That's not got much spam in it.

Having serious attack, are you? To please you I can help alleviating this most annoyance problem. All that is required is that you must forward to me most hastily all password, usernames, emails etcetera and so forth. I shall briskly solve your issues upon receipt of these informations

And all for the pittance fee of $5,000 U.S. currency (Cashier's check payable to cash).

Maybe your spammer knows my long-lost nigerian uncle. We should hook them up and the money will flow like wine.

I got some really specific spam on the last post I wrote. Odd.

I'm not sure how blogger works things, but I've got an AWESOME plugin for Word Press that has CRUSHED all incoming spam. I get the occasional track-back spam, because that's something different entirely, but other than that I haven't gotten a spam message in MONTHS.

It's awesome.It's blocked more than 4k spam comments since I installed it. The only draw back is it requires a minimum length comment.

But well worth the alternative of deleting 4k annoying comments.
