Do you know how incredibly easy it is to stop spammers on your blog? Seriously. Incredibly so.
But apparently the spammers don’t know this. I get a few (bots I’m assuming) every week posting on here in the comments, trying to sneak one by me. Lets analyze their logic.
First, do they see any spam comments in any of my posts? No.
Second, do they know how easy it is to just register with Akismet and lock them out? Apparently not.
Third, do they think anyone actually reads this blog! Ha! What a waste of their time. Even if their spamming is automated and takes a picosecond to accomplish, it’s still a giant waste of their time to spam me. No use whatsoever. Idiots.
I considered approving any spam comments on this thread, but with the unintended consequences that kind of irony could carry as baggage, I think I’ll pass.
