Russian Spammers

June 17th, 2007
Can of Spam

My blog isn’t that popular. I don’t know how many regular readers I have. I don’t advertise. I don’t care to be popular. I said what I said, I did what I did and most importantly of all, I know why I did it. Maybe someday some people in my MBA class will realize that, of course it is already too late…

Some people read my website, some people link to my website, people quote me, they find my website in Google, but I’m no threat to the Technorati Top 100.

Every now and then I get a new registered user, they aren’t registering to comment or subscribe to a post, they are spammers. They are almost always addresses. The last person to register was since that person registered Spam Karma 2 has sent me almost 300 emails and caught almost 1578 spams all in less than 24 hours.

I just want to send negative vibes to the folks over at particularly the owner of because my huge increase in blog spam coincides directly with you registering at Muskblog. I hope your inbox gets infested with crap. I also want you to know not one of your spams got through my filters and you’re just wasting my time, my webhost‘s time, and our bandwidth.

    Maybe my pagerank has gone up as today or last night I got at least a half dozen trackback spams that made it through SpamKarma 2 and everything else I run. They were all trying to sell drugs online, even though my posts were about Civilization III mostly. The IP and domain associated was:

    IP: ,

    Not true.

    I am neither Russian, or a spammer.

    I have been known to drink Russian Vodka and crack the odd can of spam…. but never together.

    Just letting you know that your loyal readership is not all dudes with accounts.

  • Muskie says:

    Someone just registered as a user/reader of my blog with the user name xxxPORNOxxx.

    If you guessed they had a email address you’d be right.

    It is another sad fact of my life, that the only people who register as readers/commenters on my blog are Russian spammers.

    The spammers, Russian or otherwise are out in full force. I don’t know if my blog crossed some imaginary popularity post, I don’t think my PageRank changed, I haven’t gained any major new incoming links, I have written any more about calves or other portions of female anatomy, I don’t have any ads, I try to blog less, but the same problems persist, day in and day out…

    The spammers don’t appear to accomplish anything but wasting bandwidth, I had to download almost 200 messages from Spam Karma 2 telling about all the spam it was capturing…

    Maybe some new automatic spamming tool has been recently released?

  • Muskie says:

    Another person registered using a address, then in less than 24 hours another 1000 plus comment spams.

    This time the address was

    All the spams were blocked by Spam Karma 2.

    Piss Off Russian Spammers, find someone else to take advantage of, more than enough people I trusted have taken advantage of me then tossed me to the curb when I complained about how I was being treated. I’m not going to let you turn Muskblog into a giant ad for Cialis or whatever spammers are trying to sell today.
