Heads up; the spammers are back

They’re back. Those odd spammers that I wrote about in January. The ones that look almost legitimate but somehow still smell. If it gets bad enough I may switch to moderating all comments for a while or require some sort of manual login before you can comment. Just wanted to give you a heads up.

  1. What kind of weird enjoyment could someone get out of doing this stuff…

  2. I’ve been getting them, too. Pesky buggers.

    • Even Askimet doesn’t seem sure about them. Instead of tossing them into the spam bin right away, they mail them to me for moderation. I continue to reassure Akismet that yes, these are spammers.
