In this post, I dabbled in the "nice" approach to attorney comment spammers, temporarily eschewing my normal inclination and Eric Turkewitz' exhortation to name and shame attorneys who market (deliberately or through reckless failure to supervise) via comment spam.
It hasn't really worked out.
The attorney to whom I extended that courtesy, after an initial email, never got back to me, even though I handed over a bunch of information and made some suggestions about tracking down what contractor or employee was spamming on his firm's behalf.
I told him I wouldn't out him based on what happened so far, so I won't. Not that he deserves it.
But that's it. From here on out it's naming and shaming. Including with that attorney to whom I was nice — if we receive even one more spam comment promoting his law firm.
