Spam, the other pink meat?
Remember that stuff? Spam, do they still sell that? Is that even meat? Spam, the meat that looks like vomit in a can, and you wonder why they never let me write the commercials for it! It's one of those foods I remember, if you threw a piece to the farm dogs, they would sniff it and then look at you as if to say, "umm what am I supposed to do with this?" That always made me suspicious, this from the same animals that loved rotting groundhog.
This is my blog PSA! I have discovered some new form of weird spam thing happening, I'm not sure what is up but here is my alert. The Spamholes are going to some of my older posts, they put a link in the comments section, usually to gambling sites or uuugh, straight porn sites! I'm not sure what the reason is but they are doing it. Watch your post stats, if you find that ten to twenty people a day are suddenly "reading" a three-year old post about you buying socks... then it's a good chance that you have been part of the spam scam. I don't want to have to turn on the comments control section but I may have to. I'm going to see if I can block comments on old posts like people do on WordPress.
I have had this happen about five or six times in the last year. Lately it was on my Halloween post from 2018, I was surprised to find it one of the top read posts. I couldn't remember anything exciting so I looked back. Actually it was a boring post, I worked late so I missed everything. Then I noticed a link recently put in the comment section to a gambling site.
Spammers... worse than rotting groundhog meat.
