    I appreciate a good comment spam attempt. I have actually let a few through on blogs I manage simply in appreciation for their inventiveness. And I happily spam away on occasion. But some lame script kiddie hit one of my sites with about a dozen spam comments this morning and I was not in the mood. Of course I grabbed his IP address. He is in a subdivision outside Boston. Believe it or not, he posted his real phone number on the whois. I called him (probably in his mom's basement):

    Is the John Doe?

    -- Yes

    Do you manage foo.com

    -- Um, yes

    You have been spamming multiple sites with messages like "foo." Did you realize your IP address is recorded when you do this?

    -- Um, um, um no.

    Do you realize this activity is against the law? Its a Federal offense?

    -- Sorry, no, I...

    Look, its cold out here. This is not how I wanted to spend my Monday. Turn off your computer, step outside, and we'll come up from the van and we'll talk, OK? If I have to knock on a door, it means paperwork. And I do not want to do paperwork. Don't make me knock, okay?

    -- [sounds of sobs] Okay.

    So if you live in the Boston metro area and see some kid standing in the snow outside his house in his pajamas, tell him he can go back inside now.

    Probably pirated NoHandsSEO, now he uninstalled it and wiped his drive.
