The Ultimate Anti-Spam Strategy
This comment was sitting in my moderation queue today:
Of course! ask the spammers politely to stop spamming us – it seems that 30% to 50% of the spammers are respectful enough to knock it off when you ask them.
Or, to combat comment spam, all we need to do is pollute our sites with links that game the search engines! So instead of crap filling up my moderation queue, I can have crap fill up my search results when looking for meaningful content online. That sounds great!
Thanks, Richard, but no thanks.
