Comment spam

Categories: Announcements

I've been getting a lot of comment spam recently. It's pointless really as all my comments are moderated, but I suspect someone is getting paid a small amount through Amazon's Mechanical Turk posting these comments.

The comments have nothing to do with the post. Some are on the quote posts, others appear on my recipe blog. Here's a sample. I block the domains as they pop up, preventing the comments being posted in future, but there is a lot. Poland must be making things easy for spammers, .pl domains are frequent.
