Comment spam

Since the past couple of days, I've started receiving some comment spam. Some guy called "Aaron Keogh" would post a comment about his company (I am not mentioning the company name nor linking to it) asking me to blog about their newly launched product. This guy would post the same comment on various posts of this blog, irrespective of the topic of the post. A quick google search revealed that the same message has also been posted on various other blogs.

Tactics like these are NOT going to get your product evaluated by anyone. No blogger is going to think, "Gee, this guy is polluting my blog with his comment spam, let me review his product". This is plain spamming and not product marketing. Screw stupid companies who think that spamming blogs will somehow increase sales.

I've enabled image verification for posting comments on this blog. So next time you post something you will see a little squiggly image. Enter the text on that image and your comment will get posted.
