Egg, bacon, sausage and spam

15 January 2010

I hadn’t really noticed, but last week I passed the 100,000 spams caught by Askimet since I first migrated Mex Files from it’s original home on Blogspot to WordPress.

Of the ones I actually saw and had to manually delete, on-line viagra pushers led the pack, with cialus coming in a poor second, followed by various naked ladies performing various contortions (mostly with humans, although variations ranged through naked ladies with various animals, vegetables and minerals… but no protozoans or slime-molds that I recall).

The only reason I noticed the number of destroyed spams was that I got an invitation to write for  “travelexpertguide.org” and happened to notice they’d also left a “comment” (which Askimet wisely marked as probable spam) on a post that had absolutely nothing to do with travel… actually it was the post on Patricia Hayes, the Texas matadora.

Let’s see… nothing to do with travel. Any expert worthy of the name would have realized they need to guide their comment to something quasi-travel related, but… NOOOOOO.   And they expect me to write for them?  Yeah, right.

And now for something completely different:
