Spammers: backpackingmastery.com

About twice a week I get people spamming this blog's comment section with spam links to backpackkingmastery.com. Lots of bloggers and web sites work hard to build something awesome from scratch, and it's not an easy thing to do.

I've always been an optimist about people, so I allow comments to be posted and just delete the spammer/scammer/shill comments. It's a lot of work to manage the comment sections and hunt down the bad comments, but for the most part it's worked well.

But certain shitty sites like backpackingmastery.com have been especially egregious with their spam. If your web site is so good (I haven't looked at it) then why aren't you building your readership the right way with good content and legitimate promotion? I think we all know the answer to that one...


Update: Same exact comment left on the same post 2 days later. It probably lived for about 10 minutes before I deleted it.
