Some of you may have gone to CC today and found the following:
When I went to my host, the reason for CC being taken down was a 2006 post called VIAGRA SPAM. The web host must have some program it runs to scan for potential spammers and it detected this post.
Of course another possibility is that a hacker embedded code in that post and was actually issuing spam. I have removed the offending post and am now submitting another potential offender.
The contents of the 2006 post follow:
I get a ton of comment spam every day. I usually do a quick scan to make sure that a valid comment wasn’t picked up by mistake before deleting it. It is very rare that I spend any time on a particular comment because they are usually nonsense. They will be poorly written with misspelled words and bad grammar or just URLs to the offensive websites.
Today I was surprised with one of the Viagra spam comments. It actually started off with a well-written joke that was pertinent to Viagra before plugging its website. It was successful in getting me to read the joke, but not in preventing me from deleting the comment.
Here was the Viagra joke of the day:
A man walked into his doctor’s office, and asked him for 3 Viagra pills.
The doctor asked, “Why only 3?”
The man said, “Well, Friday my secretary is coming over, Saturday my girlfriend is coming over, and Sunday my wife is coming home from her vacation.
The doc said, “That’s more than I wanted to know, but here’s your 3 pills.”
A week later the doctor saw the man at the gas station, his arm in a cast, and sling.
The doctor said, “What happened to you? Did the women all find out about one another?”
The man said, “No, Nobody showed up…..”
Now lets see how long it takes for this post to get flagged. The joke wasn’t even that funny. If I get flagged again, you probably won’t see this joke again.
