Blog Spam

I like having comments open on my blog. I think that it's a great idea, and fosters the natural development of discussion. Granted, I don't get that many visitors or commentors, but I noticed a troubling phenomenon.

Over the past few days, I have had porn site operators link my site to theirs by posting in the comments. Not only do I find this annoying, but it may also somehow cause my site to be associated with pornography by google, or other search engines and/or content filters. I guess because of the proliferation of anti-spam software, blogs are the next spam targets.

Oh well.
