Like anyone with a blog, I have to deal with spam comments on a daily basis. I have a filter (Akismet) that takes care of a lot of it, and the few that slip through are no big deal. I just mark them as spam and move on.
But lately, I’ve been getting a new kind of unwelcome comment. Seems I have a secret enemy, who has begun posting offensive comments, using offensive fake names and emails.
I don’t want to actually print what the person has been writing, but it is sort of amusing. Very adolescent, complete with racial slurs and homophobic sentiments. So I took a screenshot. Click the image below if you want to see what they’ve been writing. (It’s profane, I warn you.)
I was naturally curious about who this might be, because it seems more personal than the normal sort of silly scratchings. I wracked my brain, trying to think about whom I might have done wrong enough to warrant this kind of grudge. Nothing came to mind.
The identity of the person remains a mystery.
And so, I imagine this game will continue. Comments will be left. I will delete them and chuckle.
I am oddly looking forward to the next installment.
