The State Of Spam, 2013 has done a pretty good job keeping spam comments at bay in the last year or so, but lately I've been getting these ridiculous ones, all of which use the same template. I just want to give you a sample of what I deal with:

I am regular visitor, how are you everybody?
This paragraph posted at this web page is truly nice.
my page :: red flaky spot on face


I had turned on word verification, which stops these, but why should you real people have to suffer for something I can just delete? Every hour. Red flaky spot on face!

P.S. Remember when Hanrahan joined the Red Sox and used the outdated logo as his twitter icon? I told him as much, and he changed it! Awesome....

Sure enough, I get the following comment on this post:

"It is perfect time to make some plans for the future and it is time to be happy.
I have read this post and if I could I desire to suggest you some interesting things or suggestions.

Perhaps you can write next articles referring to this article.
I desire to read more things about it!
Feel free to visit my web page africanmangoguide"

Which of course I removed the link from and marked as spam.
Cue Monty Python
