Stupid blog spam

Earlier this month I changed Bebopified's comments setting so anyone can comment, but I kept comment moderation so I could screen out the wackies. Or try. At least one watchful reader suggested I delete a comment that seemed innocent but turned out to be a window into the mind of a genuine nut job. Seriously, this guy is scary.

Then a few weeks ago I got a comment from someone named Sara, who wrote:

"I recently came accross your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I dont know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often."

Except for "accross" and "dont," how sweet. The comment included a link to a website, something about piano lessons, with more misspellings.

Earlier today I received a comment from someone named Aileen, who wrote:

"I recently came accross your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I dont know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often."

The comment included a link to another lame website.

So the point of this particular parasitic spam is to get people to maybe click on a link at the end of a comment on a blog about jazz?

Good luck with that.
