How to Spot a Spam Comment

When you get a comment like this you can’t help but wonder if it is spam in disguise

“It’s nice to now finally find a site where the
blogger really knows what he is talking about.”

The thing that tipped me off was not just the weird, advertising looking URL. The main thing that tipped me off it was spam was that they said I knew what I was talking about!

    I beg to disagree, Matt — you are quite humble about it, but I believe you do know what you’re talking about!!

    (Most of the time.)
