    Over the last few weeks a site that visit on a daily basis has had their comment section spammed to death by 100's of spam posts, you know the ones promoting an income of $XXXXXX for only an hour of work or promoting a porn site.
    It used only be one two or three spam comments per article and they were left and just generally ignored, now whoever is behind those spam comments has ruined a traffic own source by severely over doing it prompting the site mods to change their comment system.

    Now i wonder if more and more large sites will start implementing different ways to prevent spam and how long this system will hold up.

    Whoever did this is an idiot for ruining his own spam method by making it more difficult.
    Perhaps they just got greedy.
