I’ve just received an irrelevant comment on one of my old blog entries, which was both suspicious and intriguing at the same time.
When the search engine giant Google announced that it would implement the
rel="nofollow" directive on its crawlers, most people had hopes it would be the end of comment spam, most especially when search competitors Yahoo! and MSN expressed support for the microformat as well. But, has this initiative from Google done its job?
Now, why would someone comment on one of my non-SEO related entries with the term Ituloy Angsulong linking to their contest entry URI? I guess it’s someone who’s so desperate to win. It seems to me that no one else hates spam more than I do. I’m thankful Akismet really knows spam—even if it is made by real people.
