Blog spam

A spambot just left a comment on one of my posts about Sudan. Apart from the fact that spam is annoying, apart from the fact it was distastefully placed on a post that contained information about an ongoing human rights disaster, MovableType (the content management system I use for this weblog) mishandled my deleting of the comment which resulted in the entry being overwritten with the spam itself. Thankfully, Google’s cache came to the rescue, and the post is back to what it was before. Soooooooo annoying!
