That’s the ratio of a valid comment to a spam comment, this blog receives. I think the spammers are just nuts. Despite the ‘no follow’ parameter set on every blog comment, I’ve have no clue why spammers are still busting this blog. Nothing happens to their comments. I simply delete them. Are they sadistic enough to waste time in churning comments and be happy that I’m wasting time in deleting comments? I don’t think so. Would be great if some mainstream media does an underground story on them.
They say Word Press has excellent spam control stuff. Prabhu suggested this long time back. Now I’m not interested to move to Word Press because I don’t want to do the same mistake I did a couple of years back in moving from Blogger to Movable Type. Though MT offers more than excellent blogging features, their spam control hasn’t met the needs completely.
Also, I’m tad upset with Google for not being aggressive with Blogger. Even the blogger blog, Buzz, sucks big time. Couple of years back, they used to have wonderful editorials on Blogger. Now they have come to a near stop. Did Google do a mistake of buying Blogger? Would Blogger be better-off without Google? Instead of being bothered by these stuff, I only wish they buck up and finish the known issues & feature requests. At least let the world know what they are up to.
