Blog Spammers

I don't know if any other bloggers have this problem, but I get loads of spam comments added deep in my blog. They never spam in the current month, and especially not on anything visible on the home page. Perhaps they don't realise that I see every comment and can edit or delete it and block their IP.

Just about every day, I have to go in and delete all of the ads and links for penis enlargement, viagra, and who knows what else. Then I have to rebuild all of my files so the comments no longer show up. I wish there was some way that I could re-work their comment spam so that it would backfire on them, but I haven't come up with a solution.

I haven't (so far) had this problem with blog comments. My email fills up with it though despite having ten or so filters in place and I would love to be able to send it back in some way that would crash their server or whatever. How unchristian of me!

I had another two along with this comment when I logged in to my admin area just now. One was a series of porn links and the other other for a casino. Arrrgh!
