Comment Spam?

I just spent the last half an hour cleaning out all the comment spam on my site. People are trying to sell you all sorts of drugs, and god only knows what else on my site!

I hate comment spam. I wish they would stop it. I really don’t see the point. I mean, c’mon, what do they get out of posting random, long comments with links to all sorts of sites on my site. Everyday, at least 3 spam comments are added on my blog. It’s really getting to be a chore to go and delete all of these unwanted comments.

I suppose the whole point of all this is to fool search engines (especially google) into some sort of link popularity gimmick wherein a lot of sites have these comment spam links to their sites and their page rating increases because of so many blog sites linking to them.

Somebody should still shoot these idiots though. :(
