It was kind of amusing at first, when there were just a couple pieces of it, but now the comment spam is turning into a nuisance. What I don’t get is the logic behind it. Is it anything more than just an attempt to boost one’s Google ranking when people type in “herbal enlargement”? Do surfers looking for Russian pornography actually start with Google?

Worse yet, do they start here, and then think, “I’ve read enough about Alex’s obsession with his iPod and experience seeing Madeline Albright. What next? What about some nice, refreshing pornography?”

I really don’t get it.

Fortunately, I happen to have configured the blog archives to the comments only appear on the individual entry pages, not on the monthly or category archives. This means that killing them off is relatively painless, and doesn’t require me to rebuild the entire site every day.
