You know, I love peppers. I love the whole process of growing
them, from pressing the seeds into the soil right up through
harvesting and enjoying them. I like reading about them, and
tracking down new or different varieties. I'm growing more than
30 different varieties this year. Some of those are from seed,
and some I'm buying the plants.
So, I perked right up when I saw someone posting with chili in
their name. This guy's not a chili lover, though. His site is
full of ads he gets paid for when someone clicks on them. He's a
spammer, plain and simple; and all his posts to this group are
to lure you to his web site so you can fill his wallet by
clicking on the ads. Sadly I've seen more and more of this,
everything from this maladroit boob to very cleverly done blogs.
I pursued a complaint against one woman, found out she'd been
posting to *97*
different gardening email lists. She was good,
too. Her web site was blog style, and she had links in the text
that appeared to be links to pictures or more information; but
they were all links to commercial sites.
Yuck, I hate spammers worse than I hate <spit!> thrips!
