Knitting, with a side of Spam

I have a comment-spam catcher installed on my blogging software (Akismet on WordPress). It’s very good at catching the bad comments and keeping them from seeing the light of day. It misses one from time to time, but that’s easy to deal with. But occasionally, there are false positives, so I make sure to glance through what it catches every few days so I don’t miss a comment from one of you.

Most of the spam is the usual variety — links for prescription drugs, online casinos, hair loss remedies. But lately I’ve gotten a few for soccer?!

    Huh?! How odd. Soccer??

  2. Jenn:

    Soccer, or football as its more readily called over here in Engalnd would be due to the world cup that has kicked off last friday. It will go on for a month. Unfortunately USA has already lost their first match, so I dont see them doing to well.

  3. Elspeth:

    I love the new style spam — it looks like a real comment and even mentions knitting and a “pattern” but when you look at the link that the person is associated with it’s “brokencredit.com”! Ingenious!
