How do you know if the WordPress blog you have just launched and have been slaving over is going to be successful? You get picked up by the comment spammers.
I love WordPress. And I love that it needs to be upgraded quite often to prevent nasty code insertions in footer.php. It means that there is a real live community hacking the code. Some are wearing white-hats and others black-hats.
The comment spammers are such a nice collection of people I would like to tie them up and have a bunch of people poke them with sharp sticks before setting fire to them. I hate spammers generally, but with email spammers I can see a potential return. With comment spam I can see none. The comment will never be published.
So if you’re out there, HiptHombong get in touch and help me understand your numbers. Then I will get the rope.
