What is even the point??

Comment spam. Every day I have to delete comment spam. What the fuck do they even expect to gain?? They post spam in old posts that no one looks at anymore.

The worst is when they post spam to my blog about unsolved murder. Under a post about a murdered child I’ll find spam for drugs and porn. These people really do suck.

Oh, I just read that the point is it makes the jerks pages look like they’re getting a lot of traffic. I’m not a programmer. Can anyone tell me what I can do to at least slow it down? I block the IP’s everytime it happens, but of course there are endless IP’s, it’s not a terribly useful solution. I wildcard it when I can, when I get a lot from a certain range of IP addresses.

People suck. Except for you guys, of course.
