Blog spammers

I had to turn on the Blogger option to moderate comments, because I've been getting blog spam.

Blog spamming is when someone leaves a generic comment in a blog just to include a link to their site. It's usually done with an automated tool, some totally automated, and some partially automated. They try to make it look like they're making a relevant comment by including the title of my blog post, but everything else about the post is from a template.

To the owners of the following sites, find a more productive way of promoting your garbage.

The * was added to prevent links.
