My son's blog had a post on spam.  On our church blog, I had to get rid of some forms since I was only getting spam for various unmentionable items.  Also since I moderate the comments, recently spammers have used the comments as a means of generating emails to the site.

I don't understand the logic of sending spam to a church blog; do they really think that I would actually buy anything from them after the irritation they have caused?

The Rules of Spam: Rule #1: Spammers lie  Rule #2: If a spammer ever appears to be telling the truth, consult Rule #1

Spam is not a technical problem. Spam is a social problem. — John Mozena

Like almost everyone who uses e-mail, I receive a ton of spam every day. Much of it offers to help me get out of debt or get rich quick. It would be funny if it weren't so exciting.  Bill Gates
