Dear WoW Gold Farm Comment Spammers:

2008 December 18

The way I see it, you have one of two options:

  1. Stop spamming your shit on our blog please. I am tired of cleaning it up.
  2. Give me 1000gp a day, and you can post as many retarded gold spam comments as you want. Hell, we’ll let you write a guest post. (But, in the popular urban vernacular, bitch had better relinquish my money lest they suffer the backside of Bigby’s Pimpin’ Hand.)

The choice is yours.

    I’m not sure that the captcha that Blogger uses is terribly effective anymore – it’s pretty plain. Do you have the ability to change it to a tougher captcha system? Or perhaps simply remove the option for anonymous comments?

    The people who comment on gaming blogs tend to sign their comments with some sort of moniker, so I don’t know that you’d alienate anyone by removing anonymous comments completely.

    Another thought – I wonder if the ‘wow’ tag you’ve got for this post and others attracts Warcraft-specific spam?

    If you do make changes, I have to recommend for a lot of good captcha and anti-spam ideas.

    You realize that that post is only going to make the problem worse, just like the earlier one did, right?

    Well, of course. But I figure as long as they’re going to spam us I can attempt to amuse myself a little until we get better anti-spam measures in place. 🙂

    Maybe my sentiments are a bit more pragmatic than ethical, but are they giving you 1000gp a day? Cause that would be bitchin’.
