Spammers

Wow do I get a lot of spam! Probable less than other blogs, but it seems like a lot. They say things like:

I don’t know if I’ve said this before but this is a rockin’ blog!

This is a very tolerable blog.

Love the blog, keep up the good work!

Love the post, keep it coming.

Ugg, really? And often they have a name like, “Buy Aleve” or “Buy Prilosec” or “Wheat is Bad”. I doubt companies would really like spammers using their products as user names. And if companies encourage this, please just know that it leaves a bad taste in my mouth for your product. I’m very glad that WordPress does a great job of filtering spam.

  1. Wow. I have never gotten spam. Maybe it’s because people have to type in a word first?

  2. Everyone who posts here has to be approved by me, but once they are approved it goes up. So the spam doesn’t actually make it to the real comment board, it’s just put in a spam category on my dashboard that I happened to go through this morning.
