My spam is having a breakdown — 5 Comments

  1. Well, I feel rather rude now, as I’ve been reading your blog for a while but it’s take you to post over at mine before I leave a comment. I must admit, for an older gentleman, you have a good grasp of computers and the like. My dad’s only 48 and he’s only had email for six weeks. He still doesn’t know how to use it, mind you.

    With regard to t’above, I believe some of these “spambots” do this in an attempt to appear to be real people as opposed to faceless machine intent on taking over the internet. Don’t ask me what spambots are, I just heard some guy talking about them and he sounded intelligent.

  2. And by the way, I was kind of guessing what I was writing in the above post because the formatting of your page is a bit messed up and it blocks the comment box. Just in case you didn’t know.

  3. Hi Kav, and welcome. I don’t have a good grasp of computing at all. I just guess and mostly it works. They’re like women – hit them in the right places and they’ll work all right.

    Having said that, thanks for the warning about the formatting. I rang Ron [we are finally on talking terms again] and he fixed it. He said it was something to do with the “Most commented posts” thing, so he removed it. I use Firefox, so I never noticed that the site didn’t work in Internet Explorer.
    Do you still think I have a good grasp of computers? 😉

    Actually, I find spam quite amusing. If you click on my Spam Tag, you’ll find out why!!!

  4. I recognise some of those spam messages. They’re either getting desperate, or those messages are the start of another botnet assault – what the spammer does is post a sort-of legitimate comment to your blog and then captures all the network traffic.

    Then they simply repeat over and over again with their captured PCs..
