There have been a lot of comment spam horror stories out there lately (and I get more than I’d like myself). Most spam (like the one linked to above) is pretty obvious…
Then there are the head scratchers.
Is a 56 year old retired teacher in Clevland really trying to find lost family, or am I somehow being duped into giving out an active email address? Will my actions or inactions help determine whether she successfully tracks down lost family, or end in a bonefide, urban-legend’esq tragedy?
I don’t know (but would love your opinions)… What I do know is that some smart folks with a vested interest are getting together to discuss technical solutions. Drop an email if your company can help.
Kudos to David Sifry for stepping up and to Yahoo! for hosting the event.
