Spam will find a way

Domain registrants usually enjoy a spam-free honeymoon period, until they need to start paying increasing attention to email and comment filters.

Having been bitten in the past on other projects, I have been careful not to post TechnoCloud’s email address in machine-readable format. However, as sure as death and taxes spam found a way, most likely through some kind of Whois data spider. It took all of 4 days for the first emails to come through. I’m hardly alone on this one.

A few days on, the inevitable comment spam has started, although WordPress plugin Askimet has been doing a good job of catching it, as well as providing the depressing statistic that 93% of all comments are spam.

Honeymoon over.
