Spam Trap

One benefit of slowly getting the blog off the ground: collecting lots of heuristic data for the spam traps.  Aside from the obvious link-infested comments, I also get a few a week that are either:

  1. In response to the “First Post (test)” post.
  2. Thanking God and all that is good that I have put up this amazing, wonderful blog for them to finally find– in response to a half-assed post about creepy pineapple puppets.

So once I start regularly putting up useful content, I’ll have some nicely trained spam filters. Thanks for making my future admin job easier, obvious spammers.

    This comment isn’t spam. Don’t pretend it is, Lorne.
