Purely Out of Curiosit

  1. Okay..this confuzzles me. I'm not new to reading blogs, however I am new to writing them. So, there are a bazzillion questions I bump into that makes me scratch my head. Most of the time I can figure them out, however this one I can't.

    Somebody came onto my blog here and added a COMMENT. And this is what was left there:

    Anybody know what that is?

    It looks like... well, I don't know what to make of it. Even the IP address has been spoofed.

    My thanks!

    The Fruitfly!

  2. I'm not sure what it is either, but I've been marking it as spam.

    My theory is that they are using it either to pass encrypted messages, test out spam generation software, or they're generating specific messages per blogs to find the blogs that let spammy comments through for some infernal purpose.

    Or maybe it's the government doing it.

  3. Nope, you're right, it's spam! Just mark it as spam and let the software do the rest for you. :)

    Strange IP though. Not one I'd normally expect to see in a comment!

  4. usually indicates the same machine you are running from.

  5. akismet learns from spam patterns, so this is an attempt to throw off the patterns, in hopes that akismet will make too many false positives, and people will turn it off (allowing in the real spam)

  6. thanks sunburntka, nice to know what they're up to.

  7. <chuckling>

    Thanks y'all! I'm going with engtech... "It's Bush listening in on our blogs..."

    Appreciated... <snickering> I'll do that Askimet thingie on it.

  8. Either that or those Sixapart gremlins yet again. :)

  9. Some porn things are getting through because it's a trackback or a pingback. Sneaky bastards!

  10. I am getting the same ones this week. The links always lead to porn. Never click on the link. I think these people are running their own servers, and any hacker can change their IP easily, to make it look like they come from anywhere. I am getting these in my in mail box too from time to time.

  11. I get a lot of porn links on a couple of harry potter posts that i did many moon ago...

  12. Death to SPAMMERS! [she shouted] OOPS! excuse me. ;)

  13. Alot of them get through on an old Justin Timberlake post. Hmmm.

  14. mmmm, harry potter porn....


  15. Could always visit Nosy's site and look at Brittany Spears naked and preggy.
