Intelligent spammers

Ok, they almost got me. I received a comment here on the website, saying this

When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Thanks!

I started thinking fast: I have to resolve this immediately!

I’m gonna publish this comment and excuse me for it. Of course. Ok, so I have to try to dig up that plugin that does that. I know there is one, I saw it once. I wanted to try it, that’s for sure. But did I actually install it? Hmm. Must be. Or isn’t it? What does it say again? Let me see who added it? Ehm. Wait. This is a NEW visitor with an unknown e-mail address… So he didn’t made a first comment at all. And wait, I don’t have such a plugin installed. Waaaiiitt a minute!

The URL that he’s providing, as well as his “name” has much to do with penny thingy auctions and stuff, money for sure. This is just plain spam. And they almost got me. They get smarter, oh yes! But not quite smart enough!
