I’m So Sick of Spam!

John on February 6, 2007 at 3:08 pm

I don’t know what has been happening lately but ever since I upgraded to WordPress 2.1 (which is great) and the new Akismet spam catcher (2.0), our level of spam has increased at least two-fold.

In the last two days we’ve gotten something like 800 pieces of comment spam. So when I go to clear it out there are literally 18 long pages of spam. The problem is that once in a while a real human comment gets caught. If I don’t look through it, someone if bound to wonder if we’ve started deleting comments. So I feel obligated to look through it.

The other problem is that this spam is so completely foul and offensive I feel like I need a shower after scanning through it. Here’s a sample of just the titles:

  • Buy Cialis
  • Discount phentermine
  • Penis Enlargement
  • Ladyboys
  • Bad Credit Loan
  • Black shemale
  • gay male porn
  • Tranny sex
  • sadism sexual

I could go on and on, trust me. I’m not including the worst of it. Good lord, I really could get through my day just fine without another ad for “Tranny sex.”

So, I’m sorry readers but I’m done wading through the cesspool to find your comments. If a comment doesn’t appear it’s not because we’re censoring anyone. Feel free to contact me via the contact form or repost (maximum three links per comment). But I just can’t do it anymore. From now on, I’m going to delete it all without looking.

Important Message to Spammers: You are the scum of the earth. Please do civilization a favor and drop dead.
