In the last three weeks, I have found a plethora of spam comments which people have attempted to post to this blog.
It's crazy. I have three blogs, all very lightly trafficked, and this is the only one which attracts spam, often to the tune of four to six a day. (Or more!)
Fortunately, Blogger sends me an e-mail whenever someone tries to post any sort of comment, and their spam filters usually manage to segregate the spam, so all that is left to me is to confirm the nature of said spam and delete it.
But it leads me to wonder, "Why this blog? Why not my retired WoW blog which still gets several hits a day on the newly updated Vuhdo setup guide for Restoration Druids? Why not my bread blog which has a wider audience, although not as many hits per day?"
Did someone decide my post on Lord Vivicar got enough hits it might be a happy hunting ground for everything from mulch sales to unmentionables and sold the URL to a bunch of spammers? How do they figure out these things?
I have no idea. But for whatever reason, this blog has recently had a drastic increase in maintenance requirements.
To all you spammers: I'm on to you. Save yourself the effort.
