Be careful when zapping those spam comments.

Posted on: April 28, 2006

Saw a little post on Zoli’s blog where he relates an interesting story in which he zapped some ‘innocent’ spam seemingly originating from the main sites of certain large search engines like Yahoo, MSN, Google etc, unfortunately this had the nasty effect of marking those search sites as illegal referrers. Nasty..
Anyone else experienced this before? I must tell you that I find comment spam really strange sometimes, its weird how people go through a lot of effort to post something so meaningless sometimes, yet it happens, A LOT! Look I realise that the 1% chance of success most relate to a lot of bucks for some spam marketer at some stage, but what about these ones that have no other reason to exist other than being stupid, annoying or malicious. *Sigh*
