OK, spammers, you got me.

An alleged person named Blair wrote me what seemed like a kind word.  In fact, it was nothing but kind words.  And his URL didn’t look like it was for online g*mbl*ng or cheap apothecary products or teh pr0n.  I approved that comment, and wrote a little thank-you note.

Heh.  Got myself fooled by flattery.  Today there’s four more such comments from the same IP address, linking the same blog, with emails from the same domain; all of them were much more transparently not-a-real-person… or else, a really sad person whose career consists of writing a hundred or so vague phrases and a program to auto-string them into something approaching real English.

Well, I can’t be a chump all my life, right?  As the man would say, delete-hed. [And as I would say – sound alert.]

If I get any more crap from this particular bunghole, the IP address is going up on the screen for public derision from my mighty dozen of followers.  So there.

    I’ve believed those too, NF. Don’t beat yourself up! Besides, you deserve nothing but flattery. (Now let’s see if this comment works because I haven’t had good luck when I’ve tried here lately.)

    Oh, it just yelled at me because I was so paranoid it wouldn’t work, I tried to do it twice.

    I should not even be allowed to have a blog. Stupit.

    I check the spam queue almost every day, just to make sure I don’t lose the legit folks. Sadly, it has been known to happen, and not just to you, Tracey.

    BTW – I am delighted that you have a blog.
