Build your own comment spam bot

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 creation 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.
