These days, my blog gets a lots of comments everyday, and by lots, I mean hundreds of comments a day, mostly from users in India. Unfortunately, I end up deleting practically all of them.
They are all spam comments (of course, what else can I expect?). Akismet correctly recognizes them nearly all the time, but occasionally, it lets a few slip by. Maybe it knows how much I like readers’ comments (and how few of them I get). Here’s a sample of the spam love I get, and note the .in web addresses of the authors.
So I wasn’t too surprised to read this article in the Hindu about how India is the second top spam generating country in the world. This is based on a study by Sophos, and you can see the list on their website here.
Over at SpamHaus, they have a list of the top 10 worst spammers, and who do you think makes it all the way to #3? Someone called Herbal King from India.
You cannot imagine how happy it makes me to see Indians succeeding in one more IT related area.
Has any of you also noticed a sudden increase in spam-comment love on your blogs from .in websites?
