I just loaded up my Spam trap here
Essentially when a spam harvesting robot hits my domain it will find that page and think mmm yummy look at all these email address's! When it gets to the bottom it will find the link to page two (The desert) and merrily harvest those to. Once it gets to the bottom of page two it will use the link back to page one and voila my script will have dynamically generated a whole new set of addresses for it to munch on :) Round and round it will go.
Will it stop spam? No. Will it fill up the owners database with crap? Yes. Will he think twice about sending his bot to me again? Yes.
If you want the script for your own domain send me an email and I will send it to you. Have a good weekend.

It seems that the big guns over at Google are getting fed up with comment spam on Their Blog :)
Cant say I blame them for it is a right pain, well it was until I installed Jay Allens MT Blacklist that is! Still Google making moves in this direction is welcomed. We all hate spam and comment spam is no different.

I have to say that I do indeed hate spammers.
But scammers are a different kettle of fish altogether! These scum are trying to steal from me and you! This morning I recieved this little email in my inbox and I have to say that I did indeed click on the link in my haste (and anger) that my paypal account had been suspended!
Click on the picture to read it :) I had to scale it down to fit!
I have been using the net for 20 years (it was called the Arpanet back then) and would consider myself to be very experienced. But couple tiredness, anger and haste together and volia even I can get fooled into clicking a link ehh!
The link actually failed but if you click it it trys to load a sexpics domain Like this..
Marks moral of today is to chill and slow down :)
