Dear Chinese spammers,

Please stop leaving your very obviously spam comments on my blog. You waste my time as I have to keep deleting them, and you're wasting your time because no one is stupid enough to click on your links, and I delete them as soon as I spot them. I don't want to set up comment moderation because I don't think it's fair on my customers who follow this blog. You're clearly a person rather than a computer program because you've got to get past the captcha to comment.

Let's see how many of you spamming morons will comment on this, eh?

Nihoma.

OH WOW. Awesome levels of irony in the area.

I did have to laugh at this...the irony is hilarious!

For the record, I do think it's sophisticated technology that gets past the captcha somehow. I'm not sure how being the techno-fail that I am, but don't let it stress you. You still have fans on your blog by the looks of things :-)

Yes, luckily, and they appear to be real people unlike those ones you get following you on Twitter! ;D

I spose it could be. I moderate a forum which uses an old version of PhpBB and I set up the VIP mod on it so that the people running the board decide on a magic word and hide it somewhere in a sticky topic on the forum. We still get spammers though! I don't see how it would a machine figuring it out, I don't see how they could! but I do think Captchas can be falible. When it comes up with the word, there must be a version of it in courier new somewhere inside Captcha so that it can compare it to what's put in. I spose that's how it works.

The funniest thing is that a friend of mine said, innocently "Oh, I've got a Chinese person following my blog. They always comment, but it's in Chinese so I don't understand it." Hahahah!

I do wonder what these websites are that they're spamming about the place. Are they trying to sell stuff or is it data-mining/trojan horse/virus stuff?
