(no subject)

For the first time, yesterday, the number of spam comments posted to my blog outnumbered the number of user comments on a day that I made a post. On a typical day I'm deleting 8 or 9, yesterday I deleted 17.

It's irritating to think that out there exist a whole contingent of people who wake up in the morning with the express purpose of peeing in the pool. Either registering hundreds of LJ accounts and then posting spam from them, or participating in DDoS attacks. Why, people? Don't they have cable TV where you live?

This was my best spam comment on LJ today....
