The Russians Are Coming

No, the Russians are not really coming.

Map Pinpointing Russia Spammer
I just got email notification that a group of spam related websites are posting a bunch of links on comment areas of various blogs. After tracking down the IP address, using a free Statcounter, I was able to see they are posting it from the Russia Federation.

To control it on some of the blogs, I turned on comment moderation. With email verification and comment moderation, a person can control this type of behavior. If you really want some immediate notification, consider sending an automatic message using Gmail Email services to your cell phone or pager whenever someone posts a comment.

I guess we all have to do our part along with Jim West to combat what goes on in the Wild Wild West of the Internet.
