I just went through and deleted 11 comments that made it through the filter. It’s a real pain (and I suspect Burt is doing more than I am on this front), but there is an upside: It’s drawing attention to old posts. I commented on one of Elias’s without even realizing how old it was and maybe doing a follow-up post over here. We have a great backlog of material, and the spambots are finding them for us.
(You can leave now. Seriously.)
UPDATE BY BURT LIKKO ON 3/24/12: Spam count now exceeds 31,000 since this started on Friday. That’s a lot of fake viagra.
