Spambots Find InvestorBrain

One of life’s major annoyances has hit my little site with a vengeance.  Spammers promoting various drugs and x-rated websites have, for some reason, decided that InvestorBrain is a great place to promote their wares. 

So what they do is comment on my posts, and fill up the “Referrers” page.  I will have to go through a software upgrade to get rid of these guys, which I won’t have time to do until after the big Online Broker story is in print (on March 3, in case you’re wondering). 

I delete their comments, and close the posts to further comments, as soon as I find them.  I apologize if this has caused any inconvenience to my small cadre of faithful readers, and plan to clean it up as soon as I can.
