Any of you other bloggers having this problem? I’ve started getting comments, ostensibly from real bloggers. But…the format is something like this:
Name: Mrs. Micah
Text: Random and strange text that makes no sense like “Thanks, and a belated happy holidays to you.
Anyway, I’m deleting them. If you see one that’s not from you, don’t panic because I’ve started scanning over every entry to make sure things are kosher.
The reason they’re doing this is because these commentators are including links to commercial sites. And they’re probably paid to leave spoof comments on blogs so as to increase the linkbacks to the sites. To the people doing this: Get honest work. Seriously. Even honest spam, for goodness sake.
