Why is blog spam seasonal or fluctuating? Suddenly I get ten spams a day, usually not more than one a week. Is there a Spam Central somewhere on the net where people are told which blogs to really hit? You don't see most of the spam because it doesn't filter through into the comments, but it's boring extra work for me. Attacks are seasonal like that, too, though they probably depend on what I have recently written.
The spam doesn't really matter. But it makes comment-threads look cluttered and untidy and not cared for. That's the smaller sliver of Echidne speaking, the one who is houseproud.
