Work-work


One part of my real job is managing the Portfolio Center website. I am responsible for most of the content, and I also have to approve the alumni page sign-ups and moderate all blog comments, screening for SPAM. We receive about 400 spams per day, with the 3 or 4 legit responses scattered among them. Those 3 or 4 matter to me (You know how I am about comments), so I'm pretty careful in my sifting, which means I'm exposed to links to porn of every type, color, and species. There's not much that surprises me anymore. From 'chubby-Asian-teen-jumping-nude-on-a-trampoline-with-a-donkey' to 'toothless-old-woman-getting-peed-on-in-the-shower-while-she-blows-the-soap', I've pretty much surmised the vast range of twisted things that turn people on. Recently, though, after deleting all the Hugh Hefner VII's from the grad entries, I found this in the comments. First time I've seen this tactic used to try to fool me.

You might want to look into askimet plugins for Wordpress (like here where you have to type the random letters and numbers) it will get rid of most of your incoming spam.

Hey you're getting russian spam, exotic eh? I used to have a yandex account when I was living yonder.

Hey, and speaking of the PC website, do you think we can work something out with the Media Architecture department to show what students are doing? Just a thought...maybe a digital "wall"? Print-outs of Flash pages and other motion/interactive projects don't always cut it, no matter how nicely they're mounted.

Tell me Portfolio Center hasn't become a church. I need to visit the website more often.

I got my first blog-troll tonight. I feel honored because they actually went back a few posts to dig up something to write about.

Who knew trolls did research?
