comment spam alert: minimalism


Here is the new minimalistic comment spam that arrived in my comment moderation cue today:

1.:)Link

That's all there was. The "1.:)Link" is a hypertext link. Seems innocent, right? No. When I hovered my cursor over the link, in the web address bar at the bottom of my Firefox browser window, I saw that the link leads to yet another pharmaceutical painkiller site.

Hover over these shitty things to see where they lead, then DELETE them. Do not follow the link. Do not publish a spam comment. I use comment moderation, not to "censor", but to protect my readers and to block the spambots and human cyber-vandals. Never let anyone use your blog comment field as an advertising billboard.
