Comment Spam is Getting Philosophical

This made me laugh. I was going through the spam today checking for legit comments that were accidently caught and it would seem our comment spammers are try something different.

If you are in the mood for a few words of wisdom, look no further than the caught spam in your Akismet window on WordPress:

“He that serves everybody is paid by nobody…”

“Every man has a fool in his sleeve…”

“That which one least anticipates soonest comes to pass…”

“To come away none the wiser…”

Akismet does a top job and this rubbish that is trying to pass for educated comment is in the spam can. Thanks Akismet. Inventive tactic though, I have to admit.

Don’t know if anyone else goes through their spam, I know I have found a few genuine comments in there a few times. I always check, I feel sorry for the person that wrote the comment and ended up marked as spam. Anyone else check the spam can?

    Yeah ET I think it is OCD – but eh, I have learned to live with it.

    Yeah taltalk – amazing what you find in there – try doing it with 500! Bloody spammers… but I am getting quick at scrolling through, I can spot a legit at 20 paces now… Cool that you have had a look at your comments and found you have more going for you than you thought, cool.

    Well, I’ve only been blogging for a week and a half and have only had 650 views so far, so I guess I’m not out there enough yet to get spammed… But, yeah, it’s nifty to see many more people linking to my blog.
