spammers

Over the years of running this site, one of the thing that I find amusing is the spammers attempting to add links to the Resources page. Most of them try one or two and realise that the links get validated and checked before being approved.

One of the things I try to do is only approve links that have content related to web development, so I am not going to approve links about mortgages, dating, used cars or holidays. It's possible that the latest one is a robot with it's user agent set as Netscape 7, but more likely in this case is that it is someone who hasn't quite worked out why the links don't show up.

So I thought I would post this short message in the hope that they can read English since their IP address points to a UK address, and hope that they will realize that it is a waist of time to continue.
