Spam Comments

Believe it or not, the Mental Blog has been victimized twice by spam in the comments section! How the hell does that work? Hardly anybody reads it, but some idiot in LaLaLand manages to send spam to it.

You may be suprised by the number of people who read it and don't post comments. yeah spam, rarely a day goes by where I don't get spam as a reult of blogging. Right now, it is all these market tips. There is a way of blocking it in blogs but I have not taken the time to figure it out. Likely the spam is not the result of an individual but rather an automated spambot that has been programmed for blogs.

In livejournal there is a way to block it by setting a privacy level.

Blogspot has word recognition which will block the spam, but that means anyone who wants to post a comment will have to go through an extra step. I'm not going to put that on until it gets too annoying.

You'd be surprised how many people read it. I read it and I don't even know you! I'd never spam you though, don't worry.

I read it too.

Yay! Thank you all. Now I know there are at least five people who read this! Actually maybe even seven or eight.
