Running a blog with comments is great fun. Often the messages left by readers are useful to others and informative. Even if they are telling me I've made a mistake I'm happy to see them there.
However, I do approve all comments as the blog also attracts less useful content. In a word; Spam.
I don't like Spam. It doesn't taste very nice (I prefer corned beef) and on the web it's often ridiculous. Take this latest effort:
Wonderful blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News.
Do you have any suggestions on how to get listedd in Yahoo News?
I've been trying for a while but I never seem to get there!

Seriously? You think that people will be browsing a post telling them how I set up the drive train for a Bantam Tug and then thing, "You know, I'm in Nebraska and a bit fed up with my wife, what a handy link!"
Of course not and to be honest, this isn't what the spamming scum think either. They just want to get a link on my blog so it fools Google that their pathetic site is worthy of some consideration.
Sadly for them, I just read them and laugh. Then I hit "mark as spam" and away they go.
