I hate spam! My inbox is jammed with it every day. And over the 2 years I have been doing Our Taxing Times, I have occasionally gotten comment spam. But it was one spam for one event. However, lately I have been getting multiple comments concerning a book on taxes that some Bozo lawyer has written. So a notice to the lawyer who is doing this, I am deleting the comment as soon as I get the email from Typepad that it has been posted.
I really question the intelligence of anyone who thinks this is a valid promotional device. Besides obviously being spam, they are commenting on the same post and it is an old one at that. Duh! It makes me seriously wonder about the quality and usefulness of that book if the author pulls something like comment spam. If he wanted to start a word of mouth campaign for his book in the blogshere, there are better ways to do that than spamming the blogs.
