Spam milestone

Just passed the 5000 spam mark. Just one of the thankless aspects of having an active blog. What motivates these losers?

But still, the ones that really get me are the content thieves. There are a number of sites already who have stolen content from this site, posted it as their own and surrounded it with Google ads. Think there is at least a half dozen sites doing this to me already. Fittingly enough, the technique most often used is called “Scraping”, where a program (bot) uses specific keywords to find content on the web, and scrapes anything that fits the criteria, copying and posting it on the other site.

It’s a wonderful society we live in.
