So I spent another ridiculous amount of my weekend trying to figure out how to stop spammers from hosing Turdhead.com again. The latest wave of septic sludge from these lowlifes has been cluttering the comment in-box for a week now.
You never see it, vitamin but I sure do. Every time I log in to moderate comments, here I’m greeted with dozens of offers to browse listings for mortgage renewals, Viagara prescriptions and poker tournaments. The best part is that nowadays, the corpse-eating pedophiles (I mean, um, “search engine optimization professionals”) that send this stuff aren’t even linking to their own sites: Their spam scripts are just sending the words “poker” and “penis” a hundred times, inviting readers to search for the terms on Google. In other words, they’re not even really advertising: They’re just annoying administrators now.
And their message isn’t even getting to Turdhead.com readers anyway (Note to spammers: We moderate comments, damn it! Quit wasting all our time!).
So now I’ve decided to appeal to Turdhead.com readers:
If any of you personally know an individual or company that spends their time doing such meaningless activity, please let me know. I’d like to interview them and find out what exactly they hope to gain. It’ll be an objective interview, I promise.
Really, I won’t kill them. Honest.
