I so agree with Dr. J about it being RUDE! to say the least.
I wonder about the intelligence of some of these people. Do they really think they we're stupid enough to think they're fooling us? They post comments that they think we will let through. Knowing that I moderate the comments on my blogs, that I check them out before they get posted or rejected, these people still waste their time posting things here. Some of them copy parts of what I posted.... some copy comments other people have left... then they paste it into my comments. Some paste generic comments and think I am stupid enough to think it's genuine... stupid people think others are stupid too. Sad.
Here is an example:
On Reba's Run I not only moderate the comments, I also have put Word Verification on and still I get spammers leaving their crap... tho not as much, it has cut down on them a lot. Unfortunately, it may also have cut down on good visitors leaving comments.
Spammers are RUDE!
Spammers are WASTING THEIR TIME!
Spammers give the internet a BAD TASTE!!!
