Spam sucks so I made this dynamic post! Click to experience the spammers-revenge.Revenge on spam. Every month this small blog gets thousands of comments. About 0.14% of these comments are ‘real’ and the rest are automated crap. It seems hopeless. All these comments are filtered and thrown away automatically, but still it remains a never ending steam of data. Around 200 useless comments a day, where the author advertises digital currency, vagina-deepeners, smartphones, nikes, cia1is and you name it. Usually in English, but also in French, Chinese, German or Russian.
I have participated with these practices from the wrong side of the fence. I was the (kind of) sender of huge amounts of spam. After a very short while I have see the light and stopped these nasty practices.
Spammers use a range of automated systems and usually a new post on this blog is directly followed by a number of spam comments. To make the comments more difficult to identify usually the text is a combination of different ever-changing sentences. This way every comment seems to be a unique text. Usually the result is some messy text, but sometimes it manages to trick all the filters set up to eradicate spam, and then the comment spammers ultimate goal is achieved. If just a few of the millions of spam comments make it through it is a good result. If then just one of the millions of published comments has a sale as a result there is a profit, and it has all been worth it.
It is time for revenge, and that is why I created this fight-back post. Every time the text changes so spammers don’t know they already commented on this post and they will keep on spamming forever. All the spam comment are automatically deleted, so I will just be putting the spam bots to work and that just might cost those spammers a little bit of extra cash. If this post results in a spammer paying a single cent more I will be happy and have achieved my goal.
