Dougal Campbell's geek ramblings

WordPress, web development, and world domination.

Dear Spammers…

Thank you for continuing to submit your data to my anti-spam systems. I have been able to put your information to very good use, keeping my blogs and email practically spam-free 24-hours a day. The emails, comments, trackbacks, and referers that you submit are analyzed for key spam indicators, which I can then use to automatically block your servers so that your future spam attempts don’t even reach my web server.

Eventually, I hope to share my collected anti-spam knowledge to a wider audience, via WordPress plugins and web services available to the general public. Then, the whole world will be able to benefit from the corpus of information which you have so thoughtfully provided to me. I’m sure that you will rest better at night, knowing that your contributions don’t go unnoticed!

Thanks again for providing this invaluable service.
