You may have noticed there has been a lot of spam comments on my blog recently. I’m sorry I haven’t got into action earlier to deal with it.
I have found the spam interesting for two reasons; firstly I seem to get more spam the less active I am (although that could also indicate I’m not upgrading my anti spam plugins). Secondly, reading how the style of spam comments has changed to try and get round these plugins such as Akismet. The comments containing long lists of url now go straight into my spam folder, but the new style of responding to the post topic are still getting through.
However, there are still comments that stand out as they are not related to the post. I’ve been reviewing the comments during my lunch hour and some of these random comments have broken the monotony of the task and made me smile. Here are my favourites:
Using processes to aid efficiency – Gold plating of combustion contacting engine parts, would it increase the efficiency of the engine? ?
Don’t forget maintenance actions – Hi,Friction, moving a lot causes heat (internal energy) to build up in your body. Also small muscle movements can help circulate blood which also heats through friction.
My organiser; the diary section – Dairy is a farm or processing of milk from animals for human consumption. Soy milk is the grinding of the soy beans with water and extracting the liquid and can be done at homeâ€¦unlike a dairy!!
To try and reduce the amount of spam in the future, I’ve closed posts older than 3 months to comments and updated Akismet. Fingers crossed this means I’ll get some real comments in the future rather than from water skiers, banks, blind companies etc.
