Comment Spam and Humanity

The ratio between reader comments and spam comments on my blog is something around 1:500 or so. Fortunately, the comment spam filter on wordpress is very good.

I really found this one very nice:

HELP! I’m currently being held prisoner by the Russian mafia [deleted link] and being forced to post spam comments on blogs and forum! If you don’t approve this they will kill me. [deleted link]
They’re coming back now.  [deleted link]
Please send help!

This guy really has a sense of humor 😉

Unfortunately, he (or she) forgot to add an address to the comment, because I’d like to send the police 😉
So today I not only killed a spam comment, but also a victim of the russian mafia 😉

ESUG 2010: I’ll be there!

I’ve just booked my flight, hotel room and conference attendance.

So I look forward to meeting old and new Smalltalk friends, learn new stuff and get some inspiration for my job. It was great in Brest last year and I am sure Barcelona will be at least as interesting.

There is already a list of talks and you can get all relevant information at the ESUG conference web site.

The yearly ESUG conference is a perfect place to be and learn what’s new in Smalltalk, both open source and commercial. All vendors will be present and talk about their latest products.
