More proof of Rule 1: Spammers are stupid

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 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.
