Stupid spammers – Be gone!

spam-verbotenLike most other bloggers, I got hit until recently by my fair share of blog spam-comments, hoping to make it past the incredible effective spamfilters I have installed here on RESguru.com. You, dear reader never get to bother with this crap as the filters catch most of it and nukes them appropriately. I personally can’t be bothered about it either :)

brainHowever, ever once a blue moon I take a curious look in the filters to see what’s hot in blogspam. It ain’t pretty but it sure is entertaining in a weird way: I can’t help being slightly amazed by the variations of poorly written commentary meant to show interest and flatter/threaten/annoy the blogger, in the hopes that they get one extra hit by posting a link in your website field to what ever crud they are peddeling. For some light entertainment, go have a look at the Museum of Comment Spam. and have a giggle or two. Mind you, these guys (the spammers, that is) aren’t exactly the sharpest crayons in the box…

Well, all good things have to come to a close. I made a nice little change, courtesy of a Mr. Gerard McGarry, in particular how to remove the website url field from the comment form. Nobody cares about that anyway. Net result: Presto! No more spam comments! How’dya like them’ apples, you stupid smappers! ;)
