Have they no shame?

December 17, 2004

I’m getting spam in my comments. I would normally accept any form of interaction with anyone on my site because it makes me feel sort of good, and wanted — but this is pushing it. Some how I feel even worse knowing that out of the handful of people that visit here, half of them are spammers who are only interested in quoting random and generic phrases like “It is true that liberty is precious – so precious that it must be rationed!” along with their url’s.

For instance, here’s one (scroll down) and here’s another. I took it upon myself to edit them, but god, it’s annoying. An email notification pops up saying I’ve received another comment on one of my lonely posts and so I get kind of excited (don’t judge me) and I go to check it only to find that I’ve been spammed. I’ve got enough of that shit in my email account, I don’t need it here too. All I can say for these guys is that at least they took the time to insert a quote along with their spam. A new breed – the intellectual spammer! I guess you could say that’s one small step in the right direction.

The point in all of this, other than to bitch, is to say that since there’s like 2 of you that actually comment, I’m turning on TypeKey. You have to be registered to post. It takes 2 seconds, so do it, assholes. It’s already implemented, just click the link when you go to post and sign up and blah blah blah.
