Is Spamming A Mental Illness? Inquiring minds want to know because I keep hearing that insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results.
If you spam on AR we will report you. Why do some of you keep doing it? Why do some of you spammers point fingers at other people when you get caught and chastised for it? Why not pay for your own website and spam yourself? How about start a spam network where you can preside over a twelve step program to amuse yourselves or self medicate your addiction to annoying the rest of us?
Go annoy yourself and leave the rest of us alone. We have work to do and don't want your comments tainting our blogs and filling up our mail boxes with your extreme stupidity. BTW, if you get spam email that you think is deceptive, forward it to email@example.com. The FTC uses the spam stored in this database to pursue law enforcement actions against people who send deceptive email.
Spam in Blogs actually serves a purpose for the ones who do it who are not suffering from a mental illness. Here's the skinny on those calculating S.O.B.s if you Wiki it: "Spam in blogs (also called simply blog spam or comment spam) is a form of spamdexing. It is done by automatically posting random comments or promoting commercial services to blogs, wikis, guestbooks, or other publicly accessible online discussion boards. Any web application that accepts and displays hyperlinks submitted by visitors may be a target. Adding links that point to the spammer's web site artificially increases the site's search engine ranking. An increased ranking often results in the spammer's commercial site being listed ahead of other sites for certain searches, increasing the number of potential visitors and paying customers."
My advice: FLAG SPAM AND REPORT IT. DON'T JUST DELETE IT BECAUSE SPAMMERS MOMENTARILY ANNOYED YOU.
Reporting your concerns regarding inappropriate comment spam will help save our community by booting one jackass off at a time. You know who you are. Yes, I am talking to you. Get your grubby digital hands off my friggin' blog.
Here are a few very useful links regarding Spam:
Here's the thing: when you comment spam, you are also e-mail spamming because I have to read your crap twice when my automatic notifications send it over.
This is not link love. Quit it. You are not making friends and influencing people. You are treading on dangerous ground with the FTC and FCC if enough of us report you. Be happy we are just booting your nonsense off of our blog posts and this wonderful network and not bringing suit for the lost time incurred from constantly having to remove you and your nonsense from where it does not belong.
Don't make me call the Feds... I'm getting tired of deleting you. Seriously... Find another way to introduce people to your product and website. I am not interested in comment spam...
