Stanley The Spammer

Just spent about 15 minutes deleting a comment left in about 15 of my pages by Stanley the Spammer.

He left a whole bunch of oriental characters each containing a link to numerous Asian sites. After I deleted the links I then checked Google's policy about registered users leaving spam in comments. Seems their solution is for the blog's owner to turn on comment moderation.

They will go after blogs that promote spam but won't go after spammers that leave comments. Okay. I'm alright with that. But that now leaves me with only one choice. A choice I hate to make.

Everyone can thank Stanley the Spammer for forcing me to turn on comments moderation. I don't like it but I'm not going to turn my little piece of the internet into a spammer links festival.

Be assured that if you leave a legitimate comment, it will be approved and will show up in the appropriate article that you posted to.
And I will be checking on a daily basis whenever possible. Don't worry if you don't see your comment show up right away. If it's legit, it will be published.

Thanks to everyone for their understanding in this matter.

Peace out!

Still Around Bro. Just testing the Spam Filters. Guees What. I am a Official Mod at the AntiX forums. Anticapatalista thought I was worthy. Wonders never cease. Made guru at LFO.

Got me a Asus 701SD (personal present bought by me for being a good boy.)..DD Windows XP that came on it (ran like a dog) to external SD flash for backup. Running AntiX 8.5 and Puppeee (on external 4 gig SD card). runs like a raped ape now.

Next headache/exercise in futility . See if I can install and run Crux in VM for the practise. Don't know if you know. I also bought a Asus (older) gaming cube Desktop with dual core intel, 4 gig of ram, 320 sata Hd, gforce 7600gs for $169.00 shipped. Run Ubuntu 64bit 10.04lts on it. Thats it from me.

Happy Trails, Rok
