the passion for spam

Some folks are spamming LiveJournal blogs with comments about The Passion.

I keep an account at LiveJournal so I can post on my friends' blogs without having to be an anonymous coward. Yesterday, I was goofing around and decided to make a single post on my journal there. Within minutes, I get an email in my inbox informing me of a comment about the wonders of Mr. Gibson's controversial new flick, The Passion of the Christ. Well, I just did the sensible thing and got rid of the silly thing.

The same fellow's posted on a few of my friends' blogs on LiveJournal too. Ptooey!


a new phenom "Blog spam", what a trip.

I think it's not so new, and people have recently been fighting it more and more. I think most blog spammers are people who're trying to up their rankings on Google. Bastards.
