Latter posts - comment spam

Things to do when you're not blogging: Taking care of comment spam. After I revisited this site recently, I had questionable fun with several comments in German. They were just statements of admiration by Gotfrid and Hans and other namesakes of baddies from Die Harder Than You Can Possibly Imagine Reloaded, written within ten minutes. Still, there was a little lag time before I realized that they truly were spam and at first, I felt hurt. I do write in my second language, but mistaking it for German was a little much, even for a spammer - but there were no links to anything, so I suspected a funnyish prank. However, the earliest of six spam entries had the links that I was expecting. I am not sure whether others have had similar experiences, so it appears that the spammer enters several blunt, nice comments into the blog manually to obscure earlier link spam. There is an increase in this type of spam here. I was expecting that comments would not be indexed but I also realized that some of the spam on this blog that I had deleted was still accessible via Google.

Anyway, twoday.net was a good choice so far and at least I had never problems with automated spam as other blogs. I wonder when manual spam and silly comments will converge.
