Best Comment Ever

Shortly after installing the Comments feature on this website i discovered the necessity of doing some kind of filtering because i was deluged with faux comments that were really just vehicles to carry links to websites selling cheap jerseys and other trash.  So i settled on Akismet, and have to say that it does a splendid job of screening spam-carrying comments.  Actually, only one of ’em has snuck through in the past couple of months.  But i figured i’d better check to make certain that it wasn’t quarantining any “real” comments, so i just now went scrolling through several pages of the trashed ones.  Yep, they were all carrying spam links.

Many make some innocuous comment to camouflage the link, and i found the following template designed to help them sound real.  Unfortunately, a spammer sent me the whole damn template by mistake when what he was supposed to do was go through it, pick one of the paragraphs, and select one of the choices between each set of curly brackets.   Hell, you could even write a little macro that would do this automatically.   ta da.   Life is sweet.
