#$!@ Blog Spammers

It’s been bad enough delting the email crud generated by the latest virus, but today I got my first porn content inserted into a comment on this weblog, with links to just about everything possible you could imagine being enlarged, shrunk, photographed, made money on, etc.

So if you exercise IP banning on your blogs (this is my first one listed, and I suspect it is not much protection), make sure you ban this piece of dog poop:

IP Address: 61.181.5.80
Name: vig-rx
Email Address: bushlee@yahoo.com

Judging from the tracerout below (I removed the starting path from maricopa out to our Phoenix path), it wades through the usual suspects (Hong Kong, China, and likely into some anonymized zone:

If people responsible for this put their energy into doing something actually productive for society, the world would be vastly a different place… called Utopia.

I am worried this is just the beginning and it will become a regular chore to not only clean my inbox of this crap but now my weblog.

Grrrrrrrrowl. This dog wants a bite out of spammers. Come out from hiding, you stinky weasels.
