I've suffered another spam bot attack. This time, though, it's personal - for you.
How is it personal for you? Allow me to explain...
This time the spambot has a name. Her name is Nishant.
I had three comments from Nishant this morning. The comments included a link to something called "Work From Home India". I didn't really appreciate the link, but she also included a comment on my content, so I figured I'd let the link slide.
As I read the second and third of Nishant's comments, though, I realized they seemed oddly familiar, like I'd read them somewhere before.
Yes. Nishant had stolen parts of other people's comments and reposted them as her own, complete with a link to her business (or whatever).
It reminds me of those movies - you know the ones - technology has become self-aware and is now plotting to take down the human race. Yeah. Those movies.
I would call Nishant an evil genius, except for one thing:
If Nishant had pulled this stunt on just one post, I might not have noticed... but three comments identical to the comments left by other people? Does Nishant think I'm stupid? Does Nishant think I'm lying about reading my blog comments?
Nishant, honey, go look 'overkill' up in the dictionary. You can thank me later.
I'm deleting Nishant from my comments, but for posterity and proof I want to share them with you (minus the active link of course).
On my Comments Policy post:
Does that look familiar to anyone? How about you, Daffy? Seen that before?
Daffy's comment on the same post:
Daffy said...Come on! Who doesn't want a semi-nude pic of moi?!? I mean, really....
What I really want to know is why YOU get all the nude pics? The rest of us just chop liva!
Just stopping by to say HI!
Yes... Daffy is one funny lady and that chop liva thing makes much more sense in context, doesn't it?
On my Worst Gift Idea Ever post:
It's word for word from Erin's comment on the same post:
Erin, if you were surprised by the time-out stool, what do you think of the cajones on this spambot?
On my This is Going to Make Me Paranoid post:
Which was stolen from a comment by Cairo Typ0 on the same post:
Cairo Typ0 said...
The spambots like you. It's nice that you have friends. :p
Yes, indeed. The spambots seem to like me. I think that the spambots like me a little bit too much...
So, Daffy, Erin and Cairo Typ0, how do you feel about the spambots stealing your words as part of their nefarious plot for world domination?
