Comment spam has hit this blog today in a big way. Luckily the spam catcher grabbed it and kept it off the blog, but I still caught it in the moderation queue.
What was the flock of misspelled messages hawking besides a larger manhood and larger breasts?
Ringtones! Tons of ringtone adverts.
Update: I did install Link Right 2 (actually now it’s 3) and we’ll see what’s up.
Until this morning, all looked fine here using WordPress with authimage removed. A few spam comments were thwarted by the new spam filter and good comments came through. But in the past 2 hours, I’ve been hit by about 500 comment spams. These message have no links in them and are mostly vacuous “love your site” comments. What’s the point?
I am training WordPress to deal with them using the new spam detector. These are mostly annoying, but they are still coming.
authimage may return.
Was tat ich? Was also viele von uns tat, um zu verdienen, um unsere inboxen voll zu erhalten von solchem bedeutungslosem Spam auf Deutsch?
A lot of people with intriguing names have been writing to tell me about the number of times that they’ve gotten lucky. Spamassassin is learning about them tho. Soon they will be off with the various spellings of Rollex where I will never see them.
If you feel the need to tell me about your luck, send that story via paper mail to:
NC Attorney General’s Office
9001 Mail Service Center
Raleigh, NC 27699-9001
Be sure to include a return address and a day time phone number.
Starting a category of spam subjects as a way of tracking social memes with this posting. I’ve been thru Rolexes, Texas Holdem, Viox and the rest and I’ve trained spamassassin on each new spam as it’s shown up and each has vanished from my in-box.
