The War On Spam

Usually spam is pretty obvious. But there are those times it is somewhat less so. Likely spammers are also getting better at it in trying to trick us.

I note that because I had a comment this morning on my earlier post that looks like it came from a legitimate WordPress.com blogger. However, it was relegated automatically by WordPress to the spam folder. In the end, I decided not to approve it.

Why didn’t I? Yes, the comment was arguably passable, but, if from a real blogger, it was clearly merely just attention-seeking from that blogger. It asked directly for a follow, and did not really address the post.

I checked out that blogger’s site. Yes, it’s new, and a bit rough, but it seems a real site. Or, then again, maybe it isn’t?
