Love, your dearest spammee

In the course of February, Spam Karma saw 2932 spam attempts here.
Out of these, 18 made it through and landed online (including a set of ten at once). That’s not a 100% score, just over 99.3%.

What really amused me with comment spam attempts was the neverending flow of “compliments”. There was just something ironic about a bot thanking you for your efforts over and over again, in dozens of ways.
So from day one I kept a mailbox full of compliments I received, and finally yesterday I went through the e-mails and compiled a list of the 83 ways spammers love me.

Without further ado, I bestow upon thee visitor, The Automated Guestbook!
