The Asians love me now

I've never really had a problem with comment spam. Sure, I had the occasional comment that was obviously someone trying to push their Web site (one that would probably shut down your computer with all the viruses just waiting for you to click on the link), but nothing with any consistency.

Until now.

I guess one of my posts is really popular with Asian spammers.

I don't know what it is about this particular Matt Koval video, but yikes.

I get a new spam comment in some language I can't read every day now. Just on this post.

As a result, I've had to turn on comment moderation. I only turned it on for the older posts, but that way I don't have to go onto my blog to delete them and can just reject them from my email.

And, I hate to say it, but clicking reject on these is oddly satisfying.

there is power in rejecting. beware of those asians- i don't know how well they take rejection...

that sounded a bit racist- against asians. i only meant that maybe asian spammers (not unlike american spammers) might not take rejection well...

ya know?

I had the exact same reaction while typing this post up. I just hope people don't think I'm racist against Asians ... because I'm not.

Just Asian spammers (and any other spammers for that matter).

My friends and I have a running joke about being "very big in Asia". I'd take your recent spam attacks from Asia as a compliment, because it's good to be very big in Asia just like KFC, Taco Bell and Pepsi.
