Trying to keep up with everything going on here and start a new blog has proven to be more difficult than I originally anticipated, so the blog has been dormant for a while. The spammers have been busy though. I did not expect any useful comments to the blog until something more substantial was posted, but turned comments on anyway to see what would happen.
It is amazing to me how quickly the comment spammers found the previous blog post and how persistent they have been. It took about two weeks before anything appeared, but there has been a near steady flow of it since the first hit. All the comments here are moderated and there are some spam traps are deployed so none of the spam has appeared on the site, but we are storing all of it for future analysis. We have amassed well over 4000 spams to the one blog post in just the few months that it has been up. It will be interesting to see what we can learn about this small but growing collection using LSA… In our spare time.
