I know writing this post does little to no good in actually combating spam, but it's just really ticking me off.
Every morning as I settle into work and have a few minutes free, I try to hit the blog boards and what have I been see? Almost every morning a whole page covered with spam messages. Usually it's complete garbage with "ushfazx's Blog" with the post "Vacuumes deserve medals too" with a bunch of crappy nonsense links mixed in with nonsense text.
I understand that 99% of these are done with code, spambots, but if there are any actual real users out there posting this garbage, GET YOUR CRAP OFF OUR SITE. When I come to the Blogs page I want to see blog posts, not your crap. Getting in the way of good content casts a negative light on your business. It's just going to hurt you in the long run. The posts won't stay for long and any slight positive you've gotten from the link is worse now that you have gotten a lot of angry people that now no longer like you.
Ok, sorry for the rant, just had to get that off my chest. Anyone else feel the same way?
