Way to Go, Livejournal...  
...You've managed to make the constant Russian spam even more annoying.

(Pre-Irony alert -- I bet this entry gets plenty of Russian spam, too)

russian spam? I do not think I've seen any.

Inquiring minds want to know.

Here's a clue: it would be written in Cyrillic characters.

I see one or two a day.

I don't know what doubt72 means about "more annoying," though. My curiosity is piqued. Что это значит?

Used to be I could make it go away with two clicks. Now it takes several clicks, picking things from a menu, scrolling through...

Feh.

(Not that Russians couldn't post spam comments in English. This does also happen. Look for a ".ru" in the link URL.)

I get tons all the time. It's really annoying.

So, I turned up the screening. But... If anybody ever asks why I'm slowly moving off of LiveJournal -- this, as much as anything, is why.

I haven't seen it either. I must hang out in the right places.

Well, you've been lucky. Either that or you've already turned off comments by people not on your friends list.

(They never showed up here in the clear, either, of course. But I've gotten tired of seeing them and locked things down a bit more. Which, of course, means linking to this blog from other places like Mixi got a lot more pointless.)
