Unsubscribe yourself, Chuckie

Jeffro gets an early example of a new comment-spam pitch:

After I initially left a comment I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I receive four emails with the same comment. Is there an easy method you are able to remove me from that service? Appreciate it! Feel free to surf to my web page on [redacted].

Oh, no, you didn’t, says the lucky recipient:

Mmmmkay, let’s look at this right here. Y’all commented anonymously, so no email address was required nor given. So, you ain’t been getting any damn emails. Kinda tough to do that. Plus, if you did comment logged in, the “notify me” controls are all on your end, oh spammer genius.

You’d think these bots could tell Blogger and WordPress apart by now.

    “Sure, I’ll just put your IP address in my domain’s IP Deny blacklist, and once the thread you commented on closes you’ll never be at risk of receiving another notification from my site.”
