Maybe it’s a sign of respect, or a recognition that The Truth About Knives is a website with useful information and something meaningful to say. Or maybe it’s the internet equivalent of being slapped in the face with a latex adult novelty item. Whatever it means, our Comments section has been flooded with spam in the last few days, and I’ve done my best to clean it out. Most of it seems to come from one account, email@example.com, which (judging by its confusing address and subhumanly inane content) couldn’t possibly be anything but a spambot account.
TTAK’s server geek dudes at Zippykid (and I say that with nothing but the deepest respect) have set us up with some pretty robust spam filters. I *think* we’ve caught and disposed of all the junk comments, but one can never be too vigilant.
If you see questionable comments here on TTAK, please drop me heads-up at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be on it like white on rice. On the flip side of the coin, PLEASE let me know if our spam filter has blocked your own insightful, eloquent and witty commentary.
You’ve all been more than awesome in the intelligence, honesty, and civility of your comments, and I’ll do everything I can to keep the comments section lively and spam-free.
