Spam, spam, spam, spam

I know this isn’t very interesting, but every time I come back to this blog now I find between a dozen and fifty spam emails, the large majority about pharmaceuticals, most of the rest about porn and a few, bewilderingly, apparently about workshop manuals for 1970s cars.

I wouldn’t mind so much if they were interspersed with the odd real comment, but nine times out of ten this spam mountain is all there is.

Do people really respond to this stuff?  Is there a steady flow of emails carrying credit card details to Russian and Rumanian addresses from British bloggers eager for Phentermine and Xanax?  If so, there really is one born every minute.  No wonder the financial services industry finds ripping off perfectly sensible people so ridiculously easy.
