Well i guess it had to happen eventually, after all "Aries Antics" has been around for a few years now and we are rapidly approaching the half million views mark so i guess a few bots were bound to pop up.
I have to say that although i notice and kill all of there posts im still not exactly happy with being spammed and as for the shady business of posting new advertising comments on my archives I should warn any potential advertisement spammers that i always keep my iPhone on me and have a real time update set for all posts made despite there source.
With this in mind i have began ISP blocking any spam I locate. I generally choose not to do this due to the rather aggressive and widespread nature of the IP blocker but as many long term readers already know this is not the first time i have been forced into this and should it continue there are "other" methods to deal with viral marketing on private projects such as my own.
...I just hope you have a really good firewall and spam filter...
