Back in January 2010 I wrote a blog entry called "So, What If The Volitity, Bear Market Is Not Over". It seems like it did not even spell "volatility right". In any event, this post for some reason gets lots of spammers adding comments. They praise the site to sky, but all praise is very generic. Did these people not realize that Blogger is very good at catching spam and does not allow these "comments" on my site?

I do not know what it might mean, but spammers have certainly found my site. The generic praise is ludicrous. However, anyone with a condo site in UK or Australia would think that their posts about their condos is in any way connected to my blog entries on investing in dividend stocks in Canada is beyond me.

There is also a number of spammers whose web site shown on the comments does not align well with the underlying web site name. I delete all of these also. I do not want my readers to click on a web site that might be pornography or contain virus.

I must admit that I am very pleased with the programming Google uses to identify spammers. I very seldom disagree with their assessment of blog comments.
