I had been having problems with blog spam, but I’ve been mercifully free of it for a while. I’d noticed that they were spamming the same posts over and over (no idea why; I couldn’t see a pattern, though I admittedly didn’t look very hard), so I turned off comments on those posts, and they died down.

But today I got quite a bit of spam, hitting posts relatively at random. I ended up turning off comments for all posts June 2005 and earlier; hopefully that will help somewhat.

The weird thing was that the spam comments just said “testcomment” (with a number attached), and similarly the links were just test links. I don’t know what’s going on here: is some jerk testing out a spam program? Is it somebody’s idea of fun? Weird.
