Originally posted on my finance blog after a particularly vulgar weekend that I spent cleaning up hundreds of SPAM comments on my Blogspot account. Spam, Spam, Spam…..
I don’t like SPAM!
No that is not my breakfast, it is what I am now continually finding as “comments” on this page. I have turned off Anonymous comments since those are just an invitation for idiots to come and spew stupidities, but this is even worse.
Typically what happens is there is a comment like:
… I really like your debt reduction web site, have a look at mine at FUNNY LINK…
You go and look and it is a page with 1 entry on it and 10,000 Adsense ads, so the only thing you CAN click are the ads (not my FUNNY LINK, that is a link to the SPAM FAN CLUB!). That is just poor sportsmanship, an abuse of blogging and a pretty tacky way to make money (only in this author’s humble opinion). Yes, I have AdSense ads, and yes, I’d like to make money on them, but at least I create relatively relevant and new content, not just an obvious, ca$h grab!
I espouse Debt Reduction, taking control of your finances and I am now a crusader against SPAM. As a kid actually I liked “Klik” more than SPAM anyway.
OK a real posting is coming soon, but I had to get that one off my shoulder!
