I’ve noticed a trend recently, that the blog comment spam sitting in the moderation queue seems to be written by humans.
I did some digging and found some online job boards that advertise for people to do this sort of thing. They ask that you read a blog posting, write a somewhat relevant on topic reply, and slip in mention and links to the product they are trying to flog.
It isn’t going to work here, people.
All comments go to moderation queue, and it’s brain dead easy to see which ones are spam comments and which are valid. Delete Delete Delete.
Just deleted 853 of them a few minutes ago. Wheeeee!
