Blog spammer?

Matt may have met a spammer that leaves advertisements on blog comments...

I guess it's just a matter of time before this kind of stuff actually gets automated and systematically abused. Especially big platforms like MovableType may be susceptible, since their platform works the same way everywhere. While blogs are in itself immune to this (just don't leak out your Blogger password) due to the pull model used, their comments most certainly are not.

Shudder.




Comments

I've had a few comments in my blog that I have removed, fairly certain that they have been placed there only to promote a site mentioned in the link.

It's sad when things come to this.

Hmm, didn't sign my own comment in a comment on comment spam! This is (photo) Matt.
