When I ask for comments, I get comment spam

Friday, December 8th, 2006

The Official Knit2 Card Sort is over. Now, I need to figure out a way to reward one of the lucky participants. If you can think of a way, leave a comment on this entry.

That last sentence was total bait for comment spam. Actually, this entire post is bait for comment spam. I had an issue with spam that seemed to start around the time of the card sort post. I figured that it was only a matter of time before I had this problem. I installed SpamKarma – which works like a dream. When I started to look more closely at the spam that was being caught, I saw that it was all going to the single Knit2, Sort2 post.  It was asking people to leave a comment if they wanted to participate (I removed it when I realized what it was doing).
Is this comment spam becoming so efficient that it knows to be not interested in my other posts? They think that I might be monitoring the comments on that one post more closely?

So, think of this post as an experiment. This is spam-bot bait. And, leave a comment to let me know what you think. Meanwhile, I’ll be looking for a nice hank of something for my card sorters.
