Who Spams Blogs?

Has anyone noticed the glut of blog spammers lately? It seems like the "comments" section of every blog has been getting filled with nonsense. Every time I get an email about a comment it contains some gibberish with a few underlined links. It seems like some people are pretty hard-up for traffic. What a complete waste of time.

Here are a few words of advice for the spammers:

1) If you think that this blog is a major source of potential traffic, I have a bridge to sell you. Just ask Google Adsense -- they'll concur.

2) At least link to something coherent. These weird sites probably don't even make sense to YOU, and you wrote them.

Anyhow, thanks to those who come to read and actually post something MBA-related.

I'm studying like a madman for a Statistics test tomorrow. I have two unbelievably trying weeks ahead of me. They include the afore mentioned Stats test, a huge group marketing case analysis, an Accounting mid-term, Economics mid-term, an Economics group problem set, an Accounting case analysis, and just to wrap it all up...a Marketing final. Oh yeah, throw in a few evening employer meet & greets for good measure. Whoopee!

I'm off to review binomial and normal distributions. Good luck as the application season gets started! I know these are trying times for applicants, but just remember that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
