Welcome to SPAM~A~LOT! June 8, 2012

SLTW has become a stomping ground for SPAM of late.

Everytime I go to Dashboard, the Spam Filter is brimming over with gratuitous messages spawned of devious design and dubious mind:

* proclaiming my brilliance at blogging
* extolling the virtues of the theme for SLTW
* wondering whether they can “borrow” content to share elsewhere

And et cetera ad nauseatum.

I no sooner clean out the crap and clap trap from the SPAM filter’s yap trap when more yap lands in my lap . . . ACK!

Early on during this blogging adventure, someone in the know  told me  that SPAM is good ~ it means that search engines are directing traffic this way.

But I’m left to wonder . . . is it the right kind of traffic to attract?

Do visits from Flatterers and SPAM Spatterers artificially inflate stats?

As they add to traffic congestion on certain posts, are they counted  when calculating traffic patterns?

Are SPAM comments included in tallies or disregarded once deleted?

If you know, do tell!

In the meantime, welcome to SPAM~A~LOT!

Aah . . . that’s better!
