A quick aside, here, to talk about comments that get left for things like blogs and whatnot. Sometimes actual people write them, and it is immediately clear that an actual living, breathing person has taken the time to sit down and write up a quick (or not so quick) thought about what you’ve written.
Every so often, of course, you need to go into the “Spam” section and clear out all of the obviously fake comments, the advertisements (for products both inane and, umm, exotic), and whatnot.
I don’t know what criteria the filtering is based on. I know that sometimes it’s the words used. Sometimes it’s more technical stuff, such as domains, etc., but that algorithm is normally pretty good.
Then, sometimes, you see a post written like this one:
Sure, it’s a little stiff in the wording, but I can see someone sitting down and banging that out. Clearly, though, it must be spam, as the email is a bit questionable.
I guess my point is, how much longer until we can’t tell the spam like this from a legitimate comment?
