Several times a week, every week, I get an email telling me that either Hillary, Britney, Helga, Sveta or Bush has left a comment on my old Jerry Baker post. There’s no need to open the messages anymore because they’re always spam. You know the kind – "I really like your site" followed by a link to some outfit selling Viagra or its competitors, a link now deposited on our unsuspecting blog. Makes me wonder:
- Why do they ALWAYS target posts about Jerry Baker, not just on the Rant but back home where I first ranted about him?
- Why do they use just those names over and over? Although I admit that just today there was a little relief from the monotony of Britneys and Hillarys. This time it was "Musclemen xxx" leaving a comment about Jerry Baker and he deposited a link I thought I’d have to be in the mood to actually click on. I’m no prude but no porn before noon, please.
- And don’t they know that comment spam doesn’t work anymore? At least that’s what one IT person told me – that Google no longer recognizes the links deposited on our blogs that way.
So please, Britney, Hillary and most especially Bush and Musclemen XXX, find something better to do with your time. How about assembling a nice rain barrel kit for your home?
For the record, I’m not the only one ranting here about good ole Jerry Baker, just the only one putting his name in the
