Spam: do they mean me?


Like all bloggers, I get a regular amount of Spam comments, which get regularly filtered out. What type of spam it is comes in waves; payday loans is a perennial favourite, along with some naked advertising and the kind of oh-gosh-wow comment about how brilliant some post or other is, and how the commenter’s going to link, or tell his brother because bro is really into this topic, and which never has any reference to the actual topic that might, you know, suggest it came from a real human being who’s actually read this stuff.

But just lately, I seem to have been specially targetted by a couple of new spam subjects. One seems to think I’m in desperate need of knowing where to get the best monster trucks in America, which is, like, seriously bad profiling dudes, but the one that’s got me worried, or should I say several that have got me worried are the dozen or so I’ve been daily getting abut the best way of escaping drug addiction.

Now you may think I’m in denial here, but I’m not addicted to anything, except possibly Diet Coke (Caffeine-Free for preference), and maybe Pizzas, and I swear that I have never touched a single drug in my life that has not been handed over the counter in exchange for a octor’s prescription. But the persistance with which these souls are trying to get through to me is starting to get worrying.

Do they know something I don’t?
