Yesterday, someone left a spam comment on my site.
How did I know it was spam?
Because there was no content other than a link to a site.
Luckily, I caught this and deleted it because you never know where that link would have led to.
Sometimes, they lead to porn or to a virus.
The person posting the link made a quick g-mail account, which is required for leaving a comment since I do not allow anonymous comments any more. They probably did a copy and paste of their html code and left it on many other blogs.
I had several people e-mail me asking how I knew it was spam.
Spammers are the worst kind of slime out there.
They hide behind their screens and attempt to make trouble instead of getting a real job.
We usually see spam in our email. Nobody reads them yet, these idiots keep sending them.
This morning I received this one.

My purpose is to show you just how stupid people operate. They probably fall for each others spam which is how they got into business in the first place.
If it sounds too good to be true– trust me– it is.
The FTC is pissed off about these people too.
