comments part II

A while back, I wrote about the woes of comment spamming. Based on the comments I've gotten so far, it would appear that my audience is comprised primarily of spammers. I usually delete spam as soon as it's posted and then block the ip, but I thought I'd share this one first. It's possible this is someone trying to be funny, but I suspect it's a spambot that had the comedic misfortune of spamming my entry about comment spam:

Name: online casino
Email Address: casino@1-online-casino-portal.com
URL: http://www.1-online-casino-portal.com
Comments: I too once had that happen to me mate

Why, out of all my entries, did it post on the one talking about comment spamming? Your guess is as good as mine. But it goes to show that algorithms are only as smart as the people that write them.
