Spam, spam, spam, spam, spam*
One apparent consequence of my blog’s new, higher profile due to the social media links: more spam comments. So far they’re not too bad — five or six a day (which is unlike on a different blog I once kept and retired more than a year ago that still gets 1,000 spam comments a day as well was one or two legitimate comments each week). WordPress seems to be pretty good at identifying and filtering this stuff.
*I’d always had a vague understanding of the origins of this usage of the word “spam” but I never realized it was so fun. I don’t think I’ve ever eaten actual Spam though.
