And The Best Spam Award Goes To…

Terrific work! This is the type of information that should be shared around the web. Shame on the search engines for not positioning this post higher! I laughed my ass off when this comment came up for moderation. How can such a well-written comment be a spam; Akismet must be wrong – I said to myself. Flattery had the better of me and the comment made its way to approval. Barely a day after the comment went live, I started receiving the same comment on other posts as well. Definitely not a flattering stuff any more, I had to mark off the published comment as spam and delete it.

From the one liner ‘thank you for sharing’ kinda stuff to the genuine-looking, well-drafted paragraphs, spamming definitely has come a long way. Identifying spam comments sometimes can be a real tough job… And sometimes, letting go of the identified ones may not be that easy.
