To the spammers

This site is getting probably twenty spam comments a day.  I know that these are inexpensive workers that are paid by the post to get past my Captcha.  They say something unrelated and put their employer's URL in the Link field of the post to increase the link count for that URL, thus increasing the Google rank for that post.  It is one of the ways that the fake SEO companies 'guarentee' you a top ten ranking for your URL.

I have a message for these people.

All comments on this site are approved by me.  I don't approve spam posts.  You are wasting your time, and taking money out of your OWN POCKET bothering to spam here.  Please leave me alone.

Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.

Let me know if you see any change in behavior.  I'd love to know it was this easy to make them go away.  Wink
