Those crazy spammers, they cheer me up

All your base are belong to usI love comment spammers. I hate what they do and that they are a waste of everyone’s time, but I love them because they make me laugh. You have to love someone who puts a smile on your face, right?

Comment spammers cheer me up. I’m talking about the people who post spam into the comments of blogs. This blog in particular gets a fair amount of spam comments a day. I rarely get a proper comment. Yes I would like to see more people commenting, but I’d rather have none than just allow the page to be filled with rubbish.

The Microsoft platform has, for several years, been an expensive one but the Umbraco content management system (CMS) is a bit of a game changer. This CMS is an open source CMS based on Microsoft’s ASP.NET that even allows editing with Microsoft Word. With Umbraco, designers can create accessible and valid xhtml with their mark-up left intact.
