Spam Bots Ahoy!







Either a whole lot of LJ users with weird names have really developed a crush on me, or I'm being inundated with Spam-bot comments, inviting me to visit a rude website.

This morning I had two commenters with crushes on me. Not as many as you but I'll take what I can get. :)

I've had those comments on two of my other LJ's where the posts weren't locked.

One day, I'll figure out why poeple do this kind of thing.

I've never had so much spam as today. They are very generous in the number of us on whom they bestow their affections, clearly!

I guess some folks get bored easily :)

Thanks, Stacy, but I don't see how listening to music would help ;)

Not even that classic Jim Croce song,
Spam in a Bot'll?

It's happening to me, too, Jon. Clearly, these are awfully energetic little robots. I wish they would find something else to do!

Of course, I know who's behind all this. It's The Energizer Bot! :)

It's very sad that so many of them have intense, unrequited crushes on so many people! ;-P

(joining the chorus) Me too. Half a dozen today; a couple yesterday. Grr! When I went to delete them (and report them as spam) this evening, two of the accounts had been suspended already, so maybe LJ is on it. Sort of.

Grr again, anyway. :-)

I had a few more this morning, but like yours, the accounts had already been squished by LJ. On the bright side, they went straight into the 'suspicious comment' folder, so whoever it was didn't gain anything by it :)

Uh-oh. Beware. I robot replaced me at Cornell IT. When I wear dark glasses I can tell who they are.

Lol :)

I've gotten a couple on ancient posts. Of course, since it had nothing to do with the subject of the post, it was duly deleted as spam.

Ah, spam. We used to eat that a lot when I was younger :)

It's rather tasty, when baked with cloves and cinnamon.

I get those every now and then but fairly rarely. It's the price for your popularity, I'm afraid. ;)

Lol, I wish :)

Jon, I noticed the strange comments on my journal on Saturday. If unintelligent me can figure out how to keep spam from my WordPress blog, why can't LJ figure it out? Are they really that stupid?

For LJ, it must be like playing Whak-A-Mole. Every time they stop one spamming technique, the little rotters figure out a new way to get past them.

Hey! I thought *I* was the only one they had a crush on!
