More proof of Rule 1: Spammers are stupid

Filed under: Spam — codeman38 @ 8:46 pm

LOL. Someone’s trackback-spamming my blog with a link to “http://thebest-pills/weight-loss-pills.html”. I’m not leaving anything out of that URL– that’s exactly what they posted.

Yes, that’s right. No top-level domain whatsoever. Talk about pointless spam.

  1. Not necessarily pointless as a lot of browsers could resolve that. In fact firefox ends up at http://siri.org/forum/read.php?f=2&i=522&t=522 for the domain name. I’m not going to try in ie in case the target page attempts to load a bho onto my browser but I think its pretty safe.

  2. Andy: Actually, that’s just the first Google hit for ‘thebest-pills’… which, as it happens, is a forum post that was spammed by these guys, from which the comments were later deleted.
