Managing spam forum posts, blog comments and website comments drives me to distraction at times. Having said that it sometimes has its up side.
This morning, whilst clearing a bunch of spam posts and comments I threw my toys out of the pram and declared to everyone present (nobody was in the room with me) that I’m through with the internet and I’m turning everything off. Fast forward a few hours and a couple of new spam comments arrive, both of which were relevant to the threads they were posted on and almost seemed useful and mildly insightful. In fact, the only thing that distinguished them as spam was the posters URL. One was a dieting site and one was a heamaroid treatment. The latter made me giggle (yes, I am that puerile) so I will not divorce the internet quite yet.
