After Middle School Chris bounced through various high schools around the state of Florida for a bit. He ended up getting a BA (in English) from the University of Central Florida at about the time others his age were getting their MAs. His (now) wife, their child, and he went to Europe for a bit (there was a programming job in Scotland) and came back unemployed where upon he got offered a job in St. Paul. He moved on from that job after a few years to one where he was paid to do the things he previously did as a hobby. That sounds much more exciting than it really was. Really his life is based on two kids, two cats, and a bunny.

Spam has worked!

[ #33488 ]

So I run The Open Guide to the Twin Cities. Like all of the guides, I have had issues overcoming spam. I’ve implemented stuff to try to defeat it in the short term, and updated software to give me new tools to work with in the long term. However, what do I do with this mixed blessing. Nearly 5K hits have come in to my guide in the last 7 months via google using the keyword “sexgirl”. That’s 1/6th of my total traffic (5K out of around 30K hits) for a keyword set by a spammer.

Sadly I don’t know enough about the places in the Twin Cities that I could possibly use this keyword recognition for my advantage. Is it wrong of me to want to take advantage of this? Does anybody have any more … intimate knowledge of the cities?
