So, I checked my blog stats – pitiful as they are – and found that I’d gotten a spam comment on one of my recent posts. While I don’t get a ton of spam here, these comments aren’t uncommon, so I figured I’d take a look and see who was spamming me before I sent the offending message into the electronic ether. Imagine my surprise when this is what I found:

Ремонт и отделка офисов, квартир или дач – это самая распространенная на сегодняшний день проблема большинства людей, решившихся, наконец, привести в порядок свое жилище. Мало того, что ремонт – это занятие трудоемкое и напряженное, еще и найти достойную компанию, занимающуюся отделкой квартир или офисов сегодня практически невозможно. Дело в том, что все меньше и меньше в нашей стране остается фирм, делающих свою работу качественно, эффективно и недорого.Однако наша компания является приятным исключением из этого неприятного правила.

Russian spam? Really?

Not being fluent in Cyrillic, I took the offending message over to Babelfish, and this is the translation I got:

    My spam count last month was 224. The more honest ones remark on my brilliant writing skills. The less trustworthy one are worried about certain inability that they suspect a blue pill would cure.

    BTW, the majority are just words with no context. They are looking for a link and try a collection of words that might sneak past a filter. I have used the Akismet addon with WordPress. Highly recommended.

    1,487 spams caught, 217 legitimate comments, and an overall accuracy rate of 99.413%.

    I use Akismet as well Ken, and it works quite well. That said, this particular piece of spam managed to catch my attention.

    They don’t seem to think my blog is worth spamming. They’re probably right.
