Spammer, Comments

Spammer Comments

I had a do a double check when I saw my comment stream the other day. There was a long list of spam comments like the top one, and then suddenly there was, what looked like, a real thoughtful response to one of my posts.

I sat there imagining a CAPTCHA farm in indonesia with a guy pluggin in spam crud, and actually being a smart chap who puts real comments into threads now and then.

Or, it could just be a glitch in the matrix…. nice to dream though.

    I imagine if they’re smart, they might try to post some “targeted” comment that appears to be actually related to the blog in question – hence a canned,generic comment about Rails, etc. – and thus increasing the chance, perhaps, of acceptance/appearance on the blog.

    I like that theory….becuase I’m a huge optimist.

    But it does make a nice story. Maybe he’s been doing some ruby programming at nights during his crappy spam job.
