All right, I'm in a bad mood tonight, and for the most annoying of blog-related reasons. When I logged into this site, I noticed that there were about 172 or so new comments. That, not coincidentally, is the same number of posts on Ideofact. Apparently, some butt munchkin from a sleazy, slimy, disreputable online pharmacy (I can say it's sleazy, slimy and disreputable because a reputable online company would never, either itself or through an agent, countenance the theft of someone else's bandwidth to advertise their sleazy, slimy, disreputable company.

In any case, I had to go through 172 separate entries to delete the offending comments, wasting an enormous amount of time on such a tedious endeavor. Thanks a lot, strofir@work.com. Of course, I banned the monkey spank's IP address ( for those curious), but that's small satisfaction.

By the way, my apologies for the language. This kind of thing seems to require considerably less courtesy than I usually try to employ here.

I sympathize. But you don't want to link to that sleazy, slimy, disreputable company. That would give them some Google PageRank etc.

And are you using MT-Blacklist? It makes removing and banning these comment spams so much easier.
