I finally made the list of places of where robot like web nuisances like to visit, and annoy. To be a little clearer, a few months ago I started getting benign anonymous comments about most any posting I made. The comments are generic, obtuse, always pleasantly written without regard for syntax, do not mention the content of the post at all, and always have an attached link. The link, is the purpose of the sending the little robot off to deliver the comments, and I am sure, will lead the person that clicks on it to a world of computer hurt. In the example below, the link resided in the words "electronic cigarette". Don't worry, I removed it. Whew.
One way to thwart these robot like programs is to activate the word verification function pictured above. In the past, I have used it, but turned it off since I felt it may be too much of a nuisance for people to endure.
Cripes, what does this say about my audience?
Anyway, it's back up and running now, so if you are leaving a comment, just play along. Comments from real folks are far better than the little notes from webots that I've been receiving.
Unless, they remember my birthday, then I may reconsider that statement.
