Comment Spam: Another way scams spread

  So as I was reading some news today I decided I would jump down to the comment section to see what others were saying about the article. When I get down to the bottom I find that half of the comments on the first page are all spam posts advertising free Iphones, Ipods, and wiis. I saw about 4 different spam urls and all of them are hosted on the same IP.

  Never trust sites in comment sections that say they will give you stuff for free. If you run a news site and have a comment board make sure you try your best to keep it spam-free.
