So despite changing to using a filtering system on comments to remove those that advertise paying poker online, they continue to send these annoying comments. Don’t they have any form of checking to see if they’re wasting their time? I guess not. As sending via the web is so damned cheap they probably don’t feel they need to.

That’s one reason why a system along the lines of HashCcash would be a useful tool to start deploying and using. HashCash is intended to reduce the amount of spam mails which could have the undesired effect of pushing more of the blog spamming that these idiots who run the online poker place are using, but overall it could lead to a reduction in the amount of nonsense that we have to deal with on a day to day basis while using the web – which has to be a good thing!
