Since I allowed anyone to comment on my blog earlier in the semester I have received about 450 comments and not a single one has not been ’spam’. Remember spam? Wikipedia defines it as ‘nearly identical messages sent to numerous recipients by e-mail’. Most of mine come from porn websites or casino websites and usually have really weird things to say.

Some people just write the same thing on every post:
Maybe all of these websites get more advertising (more money) if they have more hits. Therefore, if they send me some crazy message, they’ll expect me to click onto their website and check them out, thus giving them another ‘hit’.
I wouldn’t mind knowing how many hits my blogs got from actual people who are interested in what I’m writing about. Probably not many, maybe a couple of people doing the course, if I’m lucky.
