Benjamin Jackson recommends daily efforts to kill the 'bots following you on Twitter, for the greater good: "consistently reporting real spammers does work. If you're older than 35 and it helps, you can think of it as picking up litter off the streets of the Information Superhighway." [Buzzfeed]

    Maybe its just because I’m older than 35, but I didn’t get the “if you’re older than 35″ reference? Is he seriously suggesting that people over 35 wouldn’t be able to see the intrinsic value in getting spam off Twitter without an incredibly obvious analogy?

    Kids today! In my day we had Bayesian spam filters! And we liked them!

    I would, if I knew which ones were spambots.  Can someone help me out here?

    If you’re from Michigan, you can think of it as picking up ten cent deposit cans and bottles off the side of the Freeway of Love.
