Cranky

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 (212.78.66.136 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.
