Blog comment spam - a new kind of electronic annoyance...

I wrote a post at the end of last year with some snaps that I had taken at a shopping mall in Johannesburg, to show off some of the cool festive Christmas decorations that were going up at the time.
You can view it here:


So yesterday I get a new comment on this post - check it out:

Seriously? Is this how people are now trying to drive traffic to their sites?
Let's just conjure up some generic sounding comment and slap it onto every blog post we can hunt down in Google, and then include our link somewhere in there...
I mean this comment is so entirely irrelevant and unrelated to the content of my post - a total waste of time and space really.

Thankfully though, it seems that Blogger is one step ahead of the asses that perpetuate this drivel.
Although I received a notification of the comment, it seems to have simply disappeared from my comment list.
Good work Blogger (and indeed, Google)!

Do your blog posts get flooded with nonsense comments like this? Let us know...
