Why Us?

What does it mean that the two most common forms of comment spam on this blog are people trying to sell sunglasses or handbags?

For bankruptcy, the future's so bright, you gotta buy shades.

you all must not look like Nike types...

Where am I going, and what am I doing in this handbag?

For variety I've got a bridge I'll sell you...

I would like to point the finger at Nathalie Martin for the sunglasses/handbag spam, but I know she is a frugal shopper, despite always looking fashionable. So instead, I think it must be something in Stephen Lubben's Dealbook posts that makes us seem like a blog read by handbag lovers.

Katie, this is so funny! I am frugal and hoepefully fashionable too, but assuming not all blogs get these same spammers, I think Mr. Dealbook is responsible due to the reference to "DEAL."

P.S. Frugal fashionistas should check out asos.com. Sorry Bob, I hope this does not make things worse. :)

  • As a public service, the University of Illinois College of Law operates Bankr-L, an e-mail list on which bankruptcy professionals can exchange information. Bankr-L is administered by one of the Credit Slips bloggers, Professor Robert M. Lawless of the University of Illinois.

To request a subscription on Bankr-L, click here to visit the page for the list and then click on the link for "Subscribe." After completing the information there, please also send an e-mail to Professor Lawless (rlawless@illinois.edu) with a short description of your professional connection to bankruptcy.
