    Very funny, but very true sadly…
    Just in the last 2 days I’ve received 98 of the “If you want do delete your site from our spam bases”

    It’s some ass clown in Milaysia. One of the Guestbook’s the idtio was spamming (With my e-mail address as the Sender) sent me back a confirmation with the IP address of the REMOTE_CLIENT: 219.93.178.162

    Business? Ha ha ha!!!

    Ever heard of a real job? I hear McDonald’s is hiring. The turnover rate in the restaurant business is pretty high, so they’re always hiring new people. Maybe you’re just not used to good ol’ honest hard work. If you’re in need of a job, I know plenty of people who have openings. It’s not that hard to get “real” work.

    Sorry if you have not noticed, I live in another country if work evil when compared to pay McDonald’s. In my country I have not even been able to survive on the money two weeks. Working the internet, I get the pleasure of its Intelligent and enough money. But I do not my dishes and burgers heat.;)

    Sorry for my english.
    With love from Russia and black seo. :D

    Best regards, the red-carpet Maniac

    Really funny!

    I hope you have attached rel-nofollow to the links ;) I don’t want those idiots to get free link juice from you.

    I’m glad somebody finally put together a comprehensive list. Now I know what to look out for. My blog only seems to attract the Drug Lord and the Pornstar, though…what’s up with that?

    Well done.

    Mohsin,

    This blog does not utilize the nofollow link. I have an addon for firefox that highlights links with the nofollow attribute. There is not one link on this page with the nofollow attribute, therefore the spam is going to be higher.

    It’s kind of an unfair trade-off. I personally prefer blogs without the nofollow links initiated, but there should be some kind of spam filter implemented. Maybe the Captcha for starters.

    This is a great post however. I really like the “wall of shame” feel you have here. :)

    The Firefox extension is called SEOQuake if you’re looking for it. :)

    Notice you added the rel=nofollow by the way. Well done. :)

    LOL – nice post.
    What you’ve left out (unless you’re actually not getting any of those) is the penis enlargement crowd, which would technically fall in your “Drug Lord” category, though with a slight twist, heh.
    What actually surprises me is that we haven’t seen any Nigerian 409 scams trying to comment spam yet. Seems they’re still way too fixated on e-mail and fax spam. Just like in the good old days. :)

    Thanks everyone for mentioning the the rel=nofollow. It never crossed my mind when I was posting. I have updated though.

    Beanstalk, I’ll have to try out SEOQuake. It looks interesting and helpful. I’m still discovering all these useful add-ons for Firefox.

    Fantomaster, the penis enlargement crowd can fall under the Drug Lord category, but I think they’re in a class of their own.

    “the penis enlargement crowd can fall under the Drug Lord category, but I think they’re in a class of their own.”

    Yeah, how about a “Slick Dick” category? LOL

    Great post. I found this post while searching for a validation of a suspected spammer. Akis tagged it as spam but it is the first one that I wasn’t 100% sure about. Well, Mr “Quickie” is indeed my friend too. Thanks and Akismet knows his stuff.
    hi-larious

    Yay for spammy spiders/scripts.

    What’s funny is that many people make money from that. Quite lots of money.

    This is good. My blog seems to be stuck with a type of spammer similar to the drug lord. It’s links to various drug sites, but they try to put relatively normal words around it so it appears to be normal text. Akismet grabs it every time, anyway.
