We all get spam email (less so if you're using the GMail filters). But over the last 2 weeks I've been inundated with blog spam. It all started with an innocent comment on my Windows Live Writer post - quite an oldie from 2006:

I found this site using [url=][/url] And i want to thank you for your work. You have done really very good site. Great work, great site! Thank you!

Sorry for offtopic

"Ah yes", I thought, "reader appreciation" - and clicked the "Publish" button. Little did I know that this was a hook. Once the comment got published, I started getting 2-5 comments a day to the same post, trying to sell certain "enhancing" drugs, pirated software and plenty of other things I can't comment about since I can't read Russian. All of those, I of course reject, but it's getting to be a hassle. So from now on, I'll be very careful with comment approval. And to the spammers out there, may you all @#@%^^$%!
