Is anyone else getting attacked by dumb ass comment spammers?
I don’t mean people that are dumb because they engage in comment spamming – I mean they are dumb because they seem to have forgotten something in their spam – a link to their sites.
Today I’ve been hit with hundreds of them – inane messages like ‘I love your site – I’ll be back’ that have no link in the URL field or message itself. They all are of course from different IP addresses with different email addresses and all come in bursts.
Only frustrating thing about it is that because they don’t leave a link some of them don’t get picked up by my spam killer plug-in and need manual deletion.
Update: I have to say – thank goodness for the ‘Spam Karma’ plugin for WP. I just checked to see how many comments its deleted today. The count is over 2900 so far (15 minutes to go)!!!!
Most of them are these stupid linkless comments. Only a few get through thank goodness or I’d be losing a battle to keep up with deleting them all manually.
