Very odd trend

My normal web site has had a feature for years now allowing visitors to post info about their favourite game and why they like it. There are comments dating back to 1999.

Lately, people have suddenly been putting guestbook type comments in it. There may be a few general comments about my web site in previous years, but this is the first time I've ever had multiple comments about the site left here in such a short time frame.

Make me wonder if maybe I should open a guestbook again. I killed it when almost all entries were to advertise someone's porn site. Now that my script a) hides new entries until reviewed and b) doesn't permit urls to be posted, a guestbook might not be too painful.

    It's spam. I reckon if they decide you don't police it they'll start advertising Viagra.

  2. Mate, I've been policing that page for years now. If I hadn't, there would be hundreds of ads for adult sites (and other spam/pop-up laden trash).

  3. Hey mate! I don't know it couldn't identify me on the first comment, but it was ME. My verification code for this comment is "snape". So that's where she got that name from.
