Comment spam on this site is getting relentless. It’s like a driving rain that just won’t stop. Every day, over and over — they never let up.
I’m running MT Blacklist, and I have to add about 10 domains a day. You should see some of the domains they’re coming in on — they’re getting close to just random strings of characters by now.
They come in waves. I’ll start seeing comments filtering in (usually about a certain card game), like they’re poking and prodding the system to see if comments will take. Then a deluge comes. I try to kill the “scouts” quickly before the mothership is launched, but I often don’t get to them in time.
You’d think they’d learn, because I think only about 1% of comment spams actually make it to the front side of the site. But cleaning up after a spam salvo is a huge pain, so the time invested in that alone is enough to piss me off.
