Sad lives for foreign commenters

Our blog was filled this morning with spam posted as comments. Here's what it read:

 shoes 、 T-shirt 、 Sunglass、 Caps&hats 、 Handbags、Jersey The network shopping from the start Please look: tradetrusting

One of the editors here said these ads are likely generated by workers in foreign countries who get paid very little to search American websites for comment opportunities and then post these ads there, advertising junk.

It can make you crazy seeing them, and we delete them as soon as discovered, but it makes me sad, too, that someone's work is made up of such stuff. In a blog that looks at grief issues, it's death-of-the-soul work. An impoverished person posting junk for sale on websites they likely can't even read.
