I began bloggin sporadically in June 2005, more actively four months later, and moved from the accursed blogger platform to WordPress in a process that was completed on February 6, 2007.
[Cue massive chorus singing “The Hallelujah Chorus“]
In that time, the spam filter on this blog has picked off over 31,000 spam notices masquerading as comments. I can only imagine the quantity of stuff that hits the high traffic sites.
What I find amazing is the broad variety of services offered via this spam. I guess I was raised in a sheltered world, because these products are more amazing than what you find at the closest “As Seen on TV” store!
31,000 spams in a little over a year. Looking over them, and noting the sheer quantity, I cannot help but feel somewhat enlightened…and a little bit dirty.
Thank goodness for spam filters.
