Grrrrr! Spam stinks! I found out what "comment spam" is unfortunately! About 30 comments all at once posted in my blog with links to spam sites. ARRGH! OK now I have to get the word verification thingee to prevent this from happening again. (insert mad face here)

"30 comments at once"?! wow! That's really annoying, isn't it?! Luckily there is word verfication...

Yes fennymun! Yesterday I got a short generic-type comment from anonymous and a little while later my Yahoo e-mail was filled with post after post after post of comments made to different posts in my blog by this person. I didn't count them, just started deleting from my e-mail but I swear it was probably more than 30. I found out that spammers have some software that auto posts lots of comments in blogs with a spam link at the bottom of their post that looks like a little blue arrow. So aggravating! I guess the comments are all scattered through my earlier posts in here.

bummer, I'm probably jinxing myself but I haven't had too many problems. But I did turn on word verification even though it's a little bit of a hassle.

Hi Cyn I didn't want to use the work verificating thing but if it keeps that from happening again I'm glad to use it now.
