One of blogging's occupational hazards is comment spam. In the guise of complimenting the author on his occasional perspicacity, spam comments redirect the unwary to offers for discounted medications and other useless drivel.
My tracking stats tell me that nearly all the spam comes from India, as highlighted by the above image outing a spammer from Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh, India...wherever that is (click on the image for a closer look.) Bangalore, Hyderabad and Ahmadabad, Madras too, all have spammed their share. So great to see an economic renaissance being put to such good use!
Thanks to Blogger's comment moderation feature, it's easy and quick to wax 'em into the ether where they belong. They keep trying, I keep deleting. Still, it's 30 seconds I'd rather spend dreaming up fresh things to say. 30 seconds a day...part of the price we pay for indulging the world's dipwads, apparently.
