The Anonymous Widower

Clearing Spam Out of My Blog

Every morning I clear out the spam from this blog.  As none of it gets through the spam filter used by WordPress, I do wonder why they bother.

I suspect it must be automatic.  But even if it is is, surely programmers have better things to do than create spam.  One today, judging by the e-mail address was probably racist, so that in itself says a lot.

But as none gets through, it is a very pointless exercise. It doesn’t even annoy me much, as it takes just two clicks to consign it all to cyber-oblivion.

I suspect my act of deleting them too, is noted by WordPress, who add the sender to their banned list. I won’t say  the spammers can’t win, but their chances are getting slimmer by the day.  Which is all very good!
