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:
- In response to the “First Post (test)” post.
- 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.
