This Spammer named Bush happen upon my blog on an eve in November of the year 2006. Bush left a comment eight full-screen captures long that night.

“Dayum” I said.

I know of no existing copyright Spam protection laws. I urge all you creative bloggers to steal spam while you can. It’s free. It’s fun. It’s your new neighborhood garbage can.

This Bush left the lengthiest, most link-baited comment in my spam-box ever. My computer screen resolution is 1280p by 884p. This comment was seven thousand and seventy-two pixels long. This is unacceptable.

Smile Bush! You’re on the Most Wanted Spammer list.

    Technically, any author can claim copyright as soon as the writing is in a fixed medium. So hopefully your site’s privacy policy covers the fact that spam comments and information related to that spam comment may be publicly shared, or distributed. If your privacy policy says something like “I will never share your personally identifiable information” or “I will keep your email private” then you have a problem for violating your site’s privacy contract. IANAL.

    Hi Micheal – I am not a lawyer either.

    I would never think of sharing a commenters IP or email – ever. This post rather goes against what I never thought I would do ironically.

    Micheal you have given me some food for thought, really. But giving spammers equal rights as valid commenters is something I have not considered doing to this day, especially when the email and/or IP address they provide is falsified.

    In my dashboard when these comments come in they are called akismet spam. Are they comments or spam? I would guess that other bloggers perhaps see them as spam and not comments also. I do not know though so I can only guess. After reading your above comment though the idea of a spam policy is a great idea! :)
