I blog (and I allow comments), therefore I get spammed. I have many blogs, some of which I set up for test purposes and don’t use much. The “typical” Andrew blog uses WordPress and the Akismet spamfighting service.
It seems as though posts with a title starting with “Hello” attract a disproportionate amount of spam. This is course includes the “Hello Word” post that comes in every new WordPress blog.
I wonder if:
- Hello posts are targeted by spambots?
- They have characteristics targeted by spambots?
- Spamfighting services are particularly suspicious of comments on Hello posts?
