Apparently, I've made it as a blogger.
Finally, after goodness knows how long, I am getting blog spam.
I figure this means that I have arrived, as a fully-fledged blogger.
Now I get to join everyone else who complains about blog spam.
I think spammers are a strange bunch - they expend effort and thought on trying to get rich quick by engaging in an activity that seems pretty damn stupid.
They'd get rich far quicker, I think, if they put that much effort and thought into something that takes only a little hard work and thought to become successful. And people wouldn't execute them, gang-land style.
I think it's a new breed of sociopathy. It goes way beynd selfish, well into the realm of wanting to screw with people.
Don't think I'm simply ranting - I've been following the behaviours of spammers for oh, about a decade.
It's just getting boringly predictable. The Internet creates a place for sane and moderately on-topic discussion, then come the spammers to piss in the pool.
