Build your own comment spam bot

7 February 2005

Steps towards world domination

  1. Let Google crawl the web, indexing pages that are powered by Moveable Type, Wordpress, (insert your blogging engine of choice here).
  2. Build a spam bot using Watir as a framework.
  3. Let your creating run wild.

The really frightening part is that with just a little bit of intelligence such a bot could bypass every anti-spam measure in existence today.
