Deleting spam is too time consuming. The spam bots are out of control on the internet. The best way to prevent them is to disable comments. I welcome thoughtful comments so please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org along with the title of the post you are commenting on and I will post it for you.
It is funny how all these spambot comments are so generic and so obvious. I cannot believe anyone would take the time to create these bots and I really can’t believe all the wasted energy and service/backbone provider waste spent on this lunacy…this is a good case for regulation.
