I give up. The rate of blog comment spam to this site is bothersome, now with 10 banned IPs (which likely does very little), and going in to remove the comments manually is getting very old.

The latest, unrelated, un-meaningful, unwanted, undesired, unethical, un-freakin’ stooooopid crap that arrived in my comments:

IP Address: 219.184.4.154
Name: dish network
Email Address: dishnetwork@freemail.com

And the usual list of inane links to another spammers crappo site I will not visit. This is obvious a script doing this spam attack as the structure is always the same, the IPs are not tracable once it reaches Japan:

(and lost here, never getting to its destination, but I would not surprised to end up in Hong Kong)

In the extremely near future, I will be implementing at least one of the approaches to dealing with comment-blog-spam nicely summarized at Friday Feast (tip of the blog hat to Scott Leslie for sharing that one).

I would be doing it sooner, but you see, I have real work to be doing, not cleaning up the droppings from spam rats.
