Somebody explain this to me.
For the past week or so, every day I’ve been getting one or two Anonymous spam comments on Straight From Hel. It’s in some weird symbols or code. It makes no sense. It’s not spam advertisements. It’s just spam.
What’s the purpose?
As soon as I find one of the offensive nonsensical comments, I go in and delete. It’s not difficult to do. What’s difficult is figuring out why someone or something posts them. Do they make sense in some odd language? Do other “bots” understand them? What do they say in their odd language or computer code?
I’m probably going to have to go behind the scenes and put those annoying squiggly letters that a legitimate person has to decipher before they can comment on Straight From Hel. I’d rather not do that. But just deleting the spam doesn’t seem to have any effect.
It’s a strange world when people or their auto bots do things just to annoy others. They spam or cyber attack or system crash or manipulate or virus infect or Twitter jam. Who wastes their lives doing such things? And why are others having to waste their time and energy fighting or avoiding them?
Remember the days when spam was a meat product and the most annoying trick you could play was calling someone and asking, Do you have Prince Albert in a can?
