In the last few days, I got three Disqus comments and Disqus did email me about them. I use email notification to know if I have new comments.

Two of them were marked as spam by Gmail.

But both times, I have to see the comment on the post's page. First time, I was editing that post. Second time, moments ago, I scrolled down the home page to see how many posts I have published this month using the Archive dropdown list. I saw the post at the bottom has one comment, that's how I knew that comment.

The first case, that comment has six links, five to YouTube, one to Vimeo. It's a real comment, not a spam at all. The second comment, which has no links but only a simple question, "What is the table id?"

It's a real one, too. As I said before, spam detection isn't the solution, it's not fighting but avoiding the truth, which is we have lots of spam bombing us. It's like someone hates cockroach or mouse but this guys do kill them, he catches and moves them out of his house. But they keep coming back and breeding more and more. All the energy of this guy is used to move them out, silly.

These two incidents were not the first time. I had saved a few from spam folders a few times before and they were lucky. I currently have 450 over last 30-day period, so that's 15 spam emails a day. I guess I will clean/check up my spam folder every day from now on.

I now subscribe to Disqus comments feed of this blog. Just in case.

May I call myself by Spam Detection Victim if someday someone does want to give me one million dollars and Gmail put it into spam folder?
