So I just deleted a comment from a very clever spammer (OK, so they weren’t THAT clever, they used the name of the product they were flogging as their posting name), BUT here’s what they wrote:

“Hey just wanted tto give you a quick heads up. The text in your article seem to be running off the
screen in Firefox. I’mnot sure if this is a fortmatting issue
or something to doo with internet browser compatibility
but I thought I’d post to let you know. The layout
look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Cheers”

Spelling errors and all – this actually gave me pause to think. I mean, sure I checked the site in Firefox and all is well (because I generally know what I’m doing), but I thought it was quite clever. Spammers usually type very general “Your post is the best I’ve seen on this subject” type buttering-up to get you to approve their spam, but this was something I hadn’t seen before.

Anywho…just thought I’d share.
