One of the little web toys I knocked together and occasionally use for pontificating is my Essays site. Since its initial creation, I've added a comment functionality, but due to the prevalence of spam, everything requires manual verification.

Not, in and of itself, a major problem, but I've noticed something quite disturbing in the spam comments (most, alas). The latest is that they're pointing to the SourceForge forum (with URLs that start http:// cmr.sourceforge.net/forum/) and I am in two minds about that.

One mind says I shouldn't bother complaining, because they should already have noticed. The other mind says I should, indeed, point it out to them (with a slight risk that the forum is zapped; this happened last time I pointed the issue out).

Instead, I decided that thee Right and Proper thing to do is to have a semi-public whinge. Don't know that it makes me feel any betetr, but at least I am not feeling any worse.
