Spam

August 15, 2007 at 9:34 pm (Best of)

I just spent a little while de-spamming my comments. WordPress has a filter called “Akimset Spam” which is the industry standard, and works really well. I have it set so that anyone who posts a link in a comment needs approval, and anyone who posts more than one link is probably a spammer and gets flagged as such. But I was surprised at how many get through. Mainly people with horrible grammar, saying things like “very good site! Please to view my homepage?” But they don’t provide a link. Kind of defeats the purpose.

I had some fun reading through my archives, reminiscing to the time when I actually put some thought into my blog, before it became a mindless brain-dump to satisfy my perpetual boredom now that I am no longer in school. We had some good discussions on here back in the day. Here are some of my favorite posts. Read, ponder, add, laugh at yourself. Enjoy.

UPDATE: I unfortunately can’t vouch for many of the links; they have expired.  And Jones, I miss you man.

    wow…
    that first post was from only 2005 and I don’t even recognize the voice I employed then in the comments field.

    I suppose I used to be a feisty, opinionated and inappropriately humored person. God damn, I miss her.

    My corporate drone alternapersonality is confused…
