About 10 months ago I started to receive a lot of spam messages on this bog. The site is powered by Wordpress (http://www.wordpress.com) and so I installed Askimet (http://codex.wordpress.org/Akismet). So far, Askimet captured over 22.000 spam messages.
Although I never found a false positive so far, I always make it a point to skim over the rejected messages, just to make sure.
Usually the log is filled with ****, **** and ****, but the spammer below actually expresses profound regret for having being forced to send me a message.

Hello Sirs, I’m very sorry for my post

Well, I guess they thought it wouldn’t be as bad if they made up excuses for it or something. On the one hand this is a funny message, on the other hand it’s very sexist to assume you have to have at least 2 men to write a blog entry.
Oh well.
Until next time,
Matt
