Comment spam is junk, indeed

I just realized why I sometimes miss a few comment spams: when I receive the email notification, Apple Mail flags and files some of them as junk, which is only logical considering their content. So I have to watch my weblog Junk mailbox or find a way to prevent Mail to touch those.

Now I still don't understand why spammers bother to comment on 6-month old posts that get absolutely zero traffic. Zero traffic, zero PageRank or value in search engines thanks to MT redirection, zip, nothing, nada, useless. Hello !?! Gratuitous nuisances.

Maybe they're trying to sell you something. :)

Il faut que tu crées une règle du style si titre contient "[padawan.info]" transférer dans un dossier "commentaires blogue".

Oh, clever :-). How long before they ring on my door bell? On a second thought, I'm not looking forward to reading comments from witnesses of Jehova on this site...

That's true, I'm experienced the same thing. Comment spam for the brain. Junk mailbox chatter really cheeses me off.
