This is just going too far.

In a truly remarkable display of irony I found this comment in my spam filter today.

As you can see it was intended to show up on this earlier post.

Spammers never cease to amaze me, and that is anything but a compliment.

very stupid spam

And then silence …

Ever since the post criticising spammers, especially those who post it to forums and blog comments I’ve not gotten a single spam comment. Not one.

Normally I’d feel bad for thinking I’ve hurt their feelings in some way, but … it’s hard to hold much sympathy for the feelings of those who are obnoxious and quite often automated.

Regardless, it’s either an amazing coincidence or the spambots are getting smarter than people realise and I’ve turned them away somehow.

Curiouser and curiouser.
