I just wanted to say thank you…

… to my dearest spammer(s?). During the last few days, this notepad (no, it’s NOT a blog) has been the victim of a fairly important comment spam. Apparently our captcha has been solved somehow (and increasing the difficulty didn’t change a thing). None of the spam comments made it through, of course, since comments are pre-moderated. And they turned out to be useful indeed: thanks to all this spam, I got the motivation to finally do some further research in the spam-fighting field and I notably found the Stopforumspam blacklist. I installed some WordPress plugin that integrates with it, and started submitting… Since the spam kept coming so quickly, I soon made it to their contributors list, hurray!

So, well, all this spam wasn’t in vain, after all… So thank you dear spammer for feeding me with all those blacklistable IPs. I hope you’ll be kind enough to help me climb even higher in the ranking! 😀
