Picked up a spam comment yesterday – not your regular run of the mill casino gambling rubbish or random letters and numbers, but 12 A4 pages and 6,737 words (thank you MS Word) on why women are the favoured gender and “Christianity is a dumping ground for the disfavored” amongst other things. I’ve had two or three of these of late on this blog that slip past Akismet and have appeared on both LiverpoolAccess.com and TheFootballTimes.com. Anyone else in the same boat?
Interesting point, while my post yesterday suggested that 90% of all email is spam, the Akismet site reports that 93% of all comments to blogs are now spam as well.
Update: Looks like Rosanne (old college friend, female (yes, shock and awe of late!) blogger, fellow WIT BScIT/MM graduate!) is having the same problems… Rosanne is currently looking into weblogs as a learning tool as part of the masters, give it a read!
