Surprising lack of spam comments

And surprising popups of Crypto ones

So far I have this blog running for less than a year.

There are couple of things that I’ve expected to see:

  • Significant number of logging attempts – Check
  • Significant number of spam comments – Not check

Despite this, I have noticed that the spam comments that do get through are surprisingly sophisticated and appear almost human-like. These comments typically promote Binance or other crypto addresses, as on example below:

I presume that it is some form of automated bot trackback spam that assigns random ‘comment’ text to a trackback link.

Purpose could be multiple: SEO backlinking, visit tracking, pure spam, etc.

But still fun to see the ‘praise’ in the comments 🙂
