Anyone who’s checked this site over the past day or two may have noticed the innundation of spam-comments I’ve had.

OK, so spam is not ground-breaking news anymore but this particular lot had done something annoyingly sneaky and this was the first time I’d noticed this particular trick.

They were using the ASCII codes for some of the letters (seemingly at random) in the URLs they were pushing, meaning that there were several variations for even a single URL making it much harder, more time consuming and generally more annoying to de-spam and blacklist them.
