I hate spammers

Sad to say, I've had my first spam comment posted on my blog, so I had to change the settings to moderate comments. I hate spammers! They're ruining the internet for the rest of us. I hope there is a fitting punishment in Tartarus for the spammers!

Oh so do I !! I moderate a First World War discussion forum and it's been under attack by a spam robot (a program that posts messages supposedly in reply to earlier messages). Yesterday along I deleted about 1500 such messages... Ugh!

You're lucky to have gone so long without any spam comments - I had my first some time ago !

1500 spam messages? Wow! I guess it just took them a while to "discover" my blog, but now that I'm in the "system" I'm sure I'll get more.

That was 1500 in the space of just a few hours - in the space of the two or three weeks that the discusion forum has been under attack, I've probably deleted several thousand messages...

Funnily enough, my Poetry Friday entries seem to attract weird comments from people who apparently believe I WROTE the poems I feature.
