I am writing this note just at I set off the anonymous blog comments option on blogger.
I left the anonymous comments option earlier on so visitors could leave comments without any bias. But off late I am being hit with Blog Comment Spam. Yes, Even Blog comment SPAM . It is really awful

Offlate I am noticing that SPAM is growing .
  • We started getting automated calls from computers that played audio ads.
  • There is SMS spam for all events and occasions.
  • Then More Sales people continue to call for credit cards, loans etc etc etc. And not to forget,
  • Email spam. Its a surprise its still there . still an issue and no real solutions out there.
  • UnSolicited Emails that seems like personal mail from recruiters, agencies etc
  • Blog Spam [Advertisers pretending to be bloggers]
  • Blog Comment Spam [The subject of this note]
  • Website Name Parking Spam [Ahh ! have you tried to get a internet domain name]
  • Search Engine Spamming .... and more
Is this an issue or an oppurtunity ? Depends on how you look at things. There are atleast 50Millions users out there who consider SPAM a problem and would be willing to use a service that indirectly charges them .[Like google ads] There are many more forms of spam comming our way and this will only increase as the communication channels increases. Expect SumbleUpon , SecondLife etc being spammed

Today I avoided 2 calls suspecting it to be from a tele sales person. We usual delete all mails in the SPAM folder and our respect for real sales persons has hit the low point. These are the cauatilities of SPAM. And like any other problem , the solutions SEEMS to be a impossible.

So whats the catch. Just like Digital Music and S/W Licensing. SPAM in all its forms can and has to be prevented. I guess we need a combination of strict government regulations with technology tools to keep SPAMMERS at bay and make spamming seem bad.

At the end of the day, all SPAMMERS are trying to trade something legally. And that is the point that can to be targeted.

I can thus describe these phenomena: During the viagra dream work the psychical intensity of those thoughts and conceptions to which it properly pertains flows to others which, in my judgment, have no claim to such emphasis.. Now, William, said his host, I understand perfectly paxil your feeling about boats, and what I wish to prove to you is that it is a feeling without any foundation.. I have had an--er--interview with Mr. zantac..
