Did I say spam me?

November 5, 2007 at 9:41 am (Uncategorized) ()

What on earth is going on with all this spam on wordpress? Or is it just my blog?

I don’t know what’s going on but in the past few weeks I’ve been getting huge volumes of spam and a lot is slipping through and finding its way through as comments.

There’s probably very few people who like spam but I hate it so much I may just kill this bloody blog if it doesn’t stop. Has anyone else been having this problem? Or do you have any advice as to how I can make it stop?

    I’ve had that once or twice. It’s incredibly annoying, but being the technological retard that I am, I can’t offer any advice unfortunately.

    Hee, hee. You’re not a technological retard! Once or twice is fine – I don’t mind. But I’m being spammed on a heavy scale. In a matter of seconds (i counted) I had 16 spam messages and many of them are slipping through askimet’s filters – much more than before. I don’t know why now all of a sudden it’s happening when before I also had only one or two slipping through.

    Nope, it’s just you – I was actually wondering if you could tell me how you managed to get the spam catcher off so I can avoid doing it too. Hehehe…sorry Tobes *puts on serious face*.

    Just write to the lads at WordPress and tell them your porblem, they really are very helpful, maybe they’ll know what’s wrong?

    If there’s anyone who could manage to do something that dumb, Louisa, I’m your gal. *sigh*
