Quick note

I'm not a big fan of word verification, but I'm turning it on for the short term, as I've noticed a higher-than-usual number of spam comments coming through, not only on my sites but on a number of others' as well. I've seen just about enough of these "comments" to last a lifetime.

It was not long cheap wow goldbefore some one knocked atwow gold cheap wow gold for salethe house-door and called, open the door, dear children, your mother is here, and has brought something back with her for each of you. But the little wow8goldkids knew that it was the wolf, by the rough voice. We will gold4power not open the door, cried they, you are not our mother. She has a soft, pleasant voice, but your voice is rough, you are the wolf.

Then the wolf went World Of Warcraft Goldaway to a shopkeeper and bought himself a great cheapest wow goldlump of chalk, ate this and made mmogap his voice soft with it. The he came back, knocked at the door of the house, and igsky called, open the door, dear children, your mother is here and Cheapest Wow Goldhas brought something back with her for each of you.

I know, right? What's going on. Yesterday, the program I have to catch spam comments deleted 42 of them. And most of them are from Russian porn sites. Why couldn't it be spam from sites that let you watch movies for free or something.

It's really getting daft, I'm deleting loads a week now, although some are just funny in their varying degrees of daftness.

I had a spam from someone called carpetcleaners who, in trying to advertise their carpet cleaning capabilities, were basically threatening physical violence meet upon anyone who refused their service, I wish I kept it now because I was laughing for days.

Daniel - Bravo. :D

I opened up Yahoo yesterday to see that my Yahoo mail had 70 unread messages waiting for me. About 60 of them were spam, but they didn't go to my spam box because they were comments from Blogger. Luckily, they weren't comments from either of my sites, but from Piper's site. I took that as a warning that I might get spam-bombed in the near future.

Blake - I like that idea. Then again, I get lots of spam from Nigerian gentlemen trying to give me free money. Perhaps I should take them up on it...

Ibetolis - Very true. One of the early posts here was a spam comment that I just had to share. They can get pretty damn funny if you take the time to read them.

I'm sick mostly of the ones from fake bloggers telling my how much they like my site and how they'd like to exchange links. Gets my hopes (and ego) up, only to be crushed every time. ;)

How often do you think the real Nic Cage googles himself and finds your blog?

I posted my Nic Cage comment on the wrong post. But I stand by it.

I can only dream, Rachel. I can only dream.

Actually, getting on the first page of a search for "Nic Cage" would be life-fulfilling for me. ;) I think I'm already there for certain variations of "Nic Cage sucks."
