Why spammers leave gibberish-laden comments

Ever wondered why spammers leave those gibberish-laden comments filled with links, keywords, and chicken-scratch idiocies on your blog?

Here’s the clearest explanation (exspamation?) I’ve found yet and it makes perfect sense once you think about it.

Now WordPress is The Best at keeping out spammers, agreed, yet most of my blogs are hosted on Blogger, aka Blogspot. Can Comment Moderation be far behind? Spammers count on our not bothering to moderate the ‘comments’ they leave on older posts, so constant comment vigilance is a necessity.

Yet even here on WP spams occasionally get through filters so you WordPressers out there may find useful the above-linked article which I shall now file in your ‘In Case You Didn’t Know’ category!

FaceBook buys FriendFeed and your blog, too

FaceBook is rockin’ the aggregate world with its purchase of FriendFeed.

Is this post’s title an exaggeration of historic implications? Read WaPo’s article and see what you think about the matter – definitely do not take this blogging gnat’s word for it, because this deal sounds a bit like the further enabling of One Stop Surveillance of US net-users to me.
