    It's been awhile. I'm aware if I leave this place for more than a week the accumulation of 50,000 new accounts don't even know who the fuck I am. But it's still nice to be back.

    You operate a website. It has a blog. And only recently has it been targeted by a handful of 8 year olds spamming the living shit out of it like it's still 2007.
    This is what happened to one of mine. I'm sharing my advice with you on this subject because I don't want you to suck at your job.

    What you're doing wrong.

    you are in reality a good webmaster. The website loading speed is incredible.
    It kind of feels that you are doing any distinctive trick.
    In addition, The contents are masterpiece. you?ve performed a fantastic task on this matter!

    You rode the short yellow bus, and it's obvious. Your broken fucking english totally convinced me to approve all 60 of your comments. Your name is a url? You are a commenting god.

    From now on you're going to do this differently. You're going to leave 1 comment per blog and it's going to be relevant to the article. You're also going to use a name used by humans. Sometimes you will place your url in the comment & sometimes you will mention your website's name instead. Understood.

    Am I ratting someone's website out? Good. Am I being offensive? Alright. My life doesn't end because you wet your panties. Your comments don't go through anyway and I'm here to help you understand why. If you operate a "Blog Commenting" service... I feel terrible for your customers. Do everyone a favor and improve your methods.

    Sad to say, spam STILL works.. But I hear your frustration. Facts are many sites are still un-moderated..so in the numbers game, crap like that still works..

    Found a funny one today on a site about fruit flies.

    I mean it's pretty lame... but passable I suppose. But yeah.. spammers tend to operate on a basis that quantity > quality.
    Which isn't really true, but I think that is the mentality people have.

    I'm not sure, you handed it to me

    I understand it's spam. I also understand they can try a tiny bit harder. The day I get paid $1 per shitty comment I receive.. I will change my opinion.

    I don't do a lot of spamming, or know much about it, but if I had to guess, I would say they are probably doing this to find auto approve blogs.

    By simply sending the worst, un-passable comments, they can easily check back a week later to see which ones got posted. Obviously, only auto approve sites would let such garbage through.

    True. Though we are talking about a campaign lasting many months. These people must be idiots.

    Oh come on, it is all in fun.

    Myself, I check every post against SFS, BotScout, and a few other spam collectors. If the IP or the email is in one of the collectors I check, it is automatically dumped. Of course a few always get through that have not been reported to some spam DB., if these have a URL anywhere in the post, a www, a '.com,' an htt* they go to a spam folder. About once a week I check all the posts in the spam folder, find what is common, run that common issue through scrapebox or gscaper and go collect their autoblogs.

    No need to get mad, use them to your benefit.

    I usually enjoy those spam comments, those are usually where golden niches lie. :).
