It’s been a good run, but these last few weeks I have come to the realization that I have hit a bit of a wall when it comes to lost tech, dead ends along the trail of technological development. As in, I am out of good ideas to write about. And, quite frankly, we made it longer than I expected, so maybe it’s time to find another way to start most Saturday mornings here at Atomic Toasters.
I don’t know for sure what that will be, but today, I’d like to talk about spam. Comment spam to be specific, not the delicious meat product. This site runs on WordPress, with the comments through IntenseDebate, things most of you likely know, and there is some sort of connection between the two, and with a spam filter, that keeps, well, has kept, most of the crap away.

Some makes it all the way through, and you all have been good about reporting random spam on old posts so we can get rid of it. In recent weeks though, the spam count in the pending group has been growing progressively larger. It was mildly annoying when it was 5 a day, then 10 a day, but this week, wow. There have been like 20-30 pending comments that are spam, last night there were 57, and this morning, 70-something. The Professor asked the question, and I will echo it, who the heck did we piss off?
And to what end, really, is the spam? There is an old episode of The Simpsons where Homer get ahold of an autodialer and tries to get people to send him a dollar. But who gets the spam dollar with comments like:
