Comment Spam

I’ve just turned off commenting on 490 archived posts dating from January 2003 to May 2006. I didn’t want to do this because I think that people should have the opportunity to give their opinion on something even if they only stumble onto it from a random search years after it was written.

But the simple fact is that people don’t give their opinions on things that they stumble onto from searches, unless their opinion is that their scummy employer has better car rental services than his competitors. This month five sixths of the comments left on this site were spam. That’s fifty-four spam comments to eleven real ones so far this month.

Show the spammers who’s boss. Tip the balance in our favour. Leave real comments.
