HELP, MY BLOG Is Being Spammed

March 17, 2007 at 3:38 pm 11 comments

Check out, this post Song that I listen 24 /7. And see the comments as of now there are 8 spam comments there, do not know how many more there will be when you guys read it. I must have deleted atleast around 30 spam comments and all th sapm comments are for that post only. Seems like the spammers have developed a kind of affinity to that particular blog-post. May be they have thought that since I have not been very active on my blog, they start getting active. Now I wonder why the ever so reliable Akismet spam filter is not doing it’s job well. God knows what the problem is? So if any of u guys and gals have a solution to my problem please do respond back.

As of now I am not bothering to delete the spam comments as it’s no use. As they are just piling up exponentially. Do the presence of spam comments affect your blog in any manner? Do let me know.

    Technically no,Spam doesn’t affect your blog but if you have a lot of readers,then you wouldn’t want them seeing all those links which are usually porn/viagra and stuff in your comments.

    Akismet manages rather well and you could tweak with some other options to minimize spam.

    I am also using Akismet only for spam protection. Initially spam appears lot but I guess you have to keep marking them as spam and after a while, Akismet does a good job..

    very interesting, but I don’t agree with you

    I’m surprised you get that much spam. I would think wordpress would catch it (?) Your blog must be much more popular than mine!
