A particularly persistent spammer keeps leaving comments on the prior post, causing me to delete them manually every other day. I'm not sure why he/she/it is focused on my blog, as that last post was published nearly a month ago. Clearly a blog that hardly updates and has a handful of readers is the place to spam.
Curiously, a study released recently indicates that Hotmail is better at preventing spam than either Gmail or Yahoo. This is shocking, as I typically equate Hotmail with nothing but spam. Who knew you could get regular email there, too?
