He-e-e-lp-Spam Overload

I like to maintain a free comments policy on this blog, but unless I limit comments to blog members only or disable them entirely I get spammed with hundreds of these things daily.

My Obama posts seem to be particularly hard hit.

順便介紹一下室內設計在國內的發展,已到了一個急待突破的瓶頸階段。雖然,在裝潢學界,我們已建立了從高中、高職、五專、二技、四技、大學到研究所相當完整的室內設計相關專業教育體系,在業界,相關從業人員至少也在數萬人以上,而民間人士對於住宅、商空、辦公室等各類空間室內設計之需求也隨著經濟的不斷成長與社會進步而日益殷切。表面上看來,室內設計似乎蓬勃發展、坦途在望,但事實並非如此。此一領域至今仍有許多問題急待克服與解決,而其中最主要的問題之一是官方一直將「室內設計」視為是依附在建築之下的附屬品,而非一獨立之專業。這種情形,我們從內政部所公布施行的建築物室內裝修管理辦法之內容便可清楚看出。


此一未與學界、業界充分溝通即匆促制訂、且施行後成效不彰的室內設計管理辦法可說問題重重,值得深入檢討,以謀徹底改善之道。

I've turned comments back on for a few hours. Anybody know how to get rid of these idiots?

This is why I regulate my comments on my blog. Prevents these spammers from spamming. If you take these Chinese characters and try to translate them in a Word Processing program or on Altavista's Babel Fish, you can see that they make no sense whatsoever.

I speculate these are from Chinese computers based in mainland China doing it. This is obviously the imo of a spambot.

I can't read or translate Chinese but it is easy to infer what is being communicated.

We are watching you Loudon. When we recover the Great Southern Islands (ANZ) that were wrongly taken from China we will be coming for you. Unless, of course, you change your ways and start praising the great and glorious Chinese communist party.

This is what the message translates into from helpful hand of Babel Fish:

"This rents a room the net free publication not to spend money Ye, surpasses Kang to find out rents a room comes quickly! The specialized Moving company, serves 1st, the customer is supreme, is you are worth holding the negative life-long good partner! The fine Moving company is mainly in serves for everybody moves for the goal, this website service items by, the Moving company, turn head the vehicle, the family move, factory relocation, for main, serves the area, Taibei moves, Taichung moves, the Gaoxiong Moving company, the entire province Moving company, welcome to inquire of Introduces in a lower chamber to design while convenient in the domestic development, already to an urgently needing breakthrough bottleneck stage. Although, in the decoration educational world, we have established from the high school, the quality, five specially, two techniques, four techniques, the university to the research institute quite complete indoor design related professional education system, in field, related jobholders at least also above several thousand people, but the folk public figure regarding the housing, business is spatial, the office and so on demand of each kind of spatial indoor design also unceasingly grows along with the economy with the social progress, but day by day earnest. On the surface looks like, the indoor design as if vigorous development, the level road are in sight, but the fact is not true. This domain still has many question urgently needing to overcome until now with solves, but one of most main questions will be official “the indoor design” has regarded as is the attachment under the construction accessories, but specialty of the non-independence. This situation, we announce the execution from Ministry of Interior content of the building house decoration policing method then to be possible to see clearly. This one after the educational world, the field full communication has not been the hasty making, and executes the result not clear indoor design policing method may say the question layer on layer, is worth examining thoroughly, seeks road of the thorough improvement."

Complete and utter nonsense.

I have several forums & can block IP's. You can block individual IP's & ranges. I'm not sure what the capabilities are on BlogSpot/Blogger. Maybe there's an add-on you can find.

Also, a stronger word verification -- with noise -- may help with the bots.

Good luck!

BTW -- your blog is incredible! Thank you!
