Designer Handbags!?!? Really?!!?

As I mentioned in my prior post, I will soon be turning off anonymous commenting here.

Purging my "to screen" inbox of all the accumulated spam, I can't help but notice that a huge bulk of it lately is relating to various brands of designer handbags. Dozens of comments in the past week alone, on various completely unrelated ancient LiveJournal posts.

Designer handbags??!?

Why on earth would my journal be a target for handbag spam? Tech geekery spam, maybe. But handbags?!!?

Mine too. Happily, most of them get deleted by LJ. Whats almost funny is I believe it's an attempt to increase search engine ranking, and AFAIK comments aren't spidered.

Looks like handbag spam might calm down for a while: http://krebsonsecurity.com/2012/01/glavmed-sister-program-glavtorg-to-close/

Probably those folks will find something else to spam about, though.

What part of Florida are you all visiting? O-Town? Maybe we could have a meet-up and a round of espresso or something?
