Yikes!

Chrontendo has always gotten a fair amount of spam, but there seems to have been a serious uptick in the last few weeks. Blogger has been pretty good about blocking these in the past. But in last couple days, the Blogger spam catcher seems to have shit the bed with the lights on, and all kinds of crazy stuff is getting through., despite 100% of these comments being about cheap prescription drugs.

I'm not sure what's going on, but it's with a heavy heart that I have enabled the verification word thingy. Hopefully this will be temporary. But for the time being you'll need to type in the magic word to post a comment.

If I sell you cheap Viagra, will that get ChronSega out any faster?

I kid, I kid!

I'm pretty sure Viagra would cause additional delays.

In the last few months, I've received emails of comments being made but I don't actually see them on my blog anymore. Not sure why. Most of the emails, however, are of spam. For a long time, I never cared, but now I receive three or five a day, and most of them are just gibberish.

what if I wanted to post a relevant comment AND sell cheap prescription drugs?

Also, for what it's worth, I'd just like to point out that generic viagra (aka Sildenafil) is just around the corner, at least in Canada, maybe you already have it in the states?

"word verification thing"

those words must weight likes stones in your heart

god bless you Dr. Sparkle for daring to put up with the unwashed masses

So I guess the Canadian Supreme Court just invalidated the Viagra patent? I don't think we'll be seeing the benefits in the US anytime soon. Sorry, impotent American dudes!

I've wonder how pharmaceutical companies employ spam filters for their email systems.

I doubt the word "cheap" comes up in the subject line of many pharmaceutical company emails.

These touring tests are a discrimination against robot kind!

I will not stand for it dear doctor.
