Obviously this isn't my official job title, but it really should be.
One of the duties of my part time job is to help write and manage a blog on engineering stuff. (Apparently having frequently updated content on your website helps with search engine optimization.)
I have been assigned the honor of moderating all the comments.
Word verification hasn't been added to work blog yet. This is not a good thing. The blog is on wordpress and apparently their spam filter is nonexistent.At this point, I feel like I'm on a first name basis with the spammers. I read countless advertisements for jewelry (freakish amounts and types of jewelry), mortgage calculators, pills, creams, life insurance and pornography.
These are some of the best spam titles I've come across:
Nudie (I like it. Short and to the point)
Removable gold tooth jewelry (Because really who couldn't use that?)
University of California, Irvine distance learning animal science courses (You definitely want to pick a college that advertises via spam. It's a sign of a good quality education.)
Naughty Secretary Jewelry (A costume I could see, but jewelry?)
Cancer Jewelry Man Survivor Testicular (WTF? I guess they are just trying to cover all the bases.)
My current all time favorite spam is one included a link and urged me to "Enter your url at this website to stop spam. Please install the software to end spam." (Please tell me this never works.)
This whole spam situation is completely out of control.
