Have any of you bloggers noticed a trend of late?
As in …. more spam?
More hostile comments so nonsensical and poorly written that they’re laughable?
More links to – ahem – enhancement products and dating sites?
More subscribers with links to blogs that … don’t exist?
When I was a kid, Mom bought Spam sometimes.
She’d slice it into thick slices and fry it on high heat, heat so hot the edges would burn and curl just a little. Served up with scrambled eggs or cheesy potatoes we kids, fresh off our ponies, the lake or the field, would gobble it down.
It wasn’t great, but it was a salty-hammy-concoction that was tolerable. Especially with enough ketchup.
Nowadays, Spam means something else.
Spam now is unwanted e-attention from ill-intentioned people and systems.
Systems and individuals looking to scam, steal, trick, coerce and lie their way into our good graces.
Do what I do … send ‘em to the Spam folder. Never respond. Don’t click on their faceless links.
And hope that WordPress turns the heat up so high they smoke.
Are you seeing more spam these days? Have you turned up the heat?
