Got Spammed Again

Spam Spam Comment Spam Bacon Comment and a side of Spam
So the big mean Spam monster got me again.  I was still holding out hope that with the long dead period this blog wouldn't catch the interest of comment spammers, but between yesterday and early this morning I got spammed.

About 269 times.

It was a fairly lazy spam as spamming goes, but what they lacked in creativity they made up for in pure volume.  If nothing else they got their porn message across to me as I had to at least glance at each one and make sure someone wasn't actually posting a comment about Indian Girls, Big Cocks, or Huge Tits.

At this point I'm willing to look at this as an oddity.  I've had a couple other spam messages... one here, one there... but they were simple enough to delete.  This set took me 10 minutes to clear from both the blog and my email box.  That's 10 minutes I could have spent searching for inspiration.  10 minutes I could have spent writing a story.  10 minutes I could have even possibly been capping (gasp!).  Instead I spent 10 minutes getting more and more pissed off.

I won't blow my top.  I won't lock down the comment section.  I won't be adding the captcha back.  But it's in the back of my head.  It's a tool that can and will be brought out if this continues.

If there's any silver lining to this, I did get to spend a few minutes writing up this post and re-watching the hilarous Monty Python Spam skit.  GOD I love that skit!  If for no other reason that the galling cry of:



  1. WOW. Thanks for pointing it out. I just made a quick run through my comment folder and HOLY SHIETZ! Sorry bout' that! A hundred or more comments by the same spammer. Hopefully adding those to spam will resolve the problem. It's not like my blog is abandoned or something.

    Hugs and Kisses Alectra

  2. Yup one scumbag hit my blog this morning. Is it wrong to wish that spammers could be just a little more creative?
