SPAM war



I am just wondering if I am waging this war alone or is everyone experiencing this?





Do any of you feel like this when you see all the anonymous comments that are SPAM when you open your email?


I'm not talking about this kind of spam either!





I mean THIS kind!!!!!







Then I log into blogger to delete the spam



I "delete all" the comments that are under the SPAM section of the comments.....





And then I realize that there are MORE SPAM comments in the "published" section!



And yes this is what I looked like when I found it there by accident!



I really do not want to put word verification on here.  I usually can't read the words in it. When I am trying to use it on  blogs I visit I can't get my comment on there!  I also really do not want to moderate comments because I will still be dealing with the SPAM (I think?).    

I would LOVE to hear what you are doing about this?  It is actually keeping me from posting because I am deleting 20-30 spam comments a day!  


Help please! :)


I want feel like THIS again when blogging....

I agree! I get sooo many spam comments and finally had to resort to the comment moderation, as at least they can't get them to show up on my page at all. It is so frustrating! I have looked and looked to see if there's any way of not allowing anonymous comments on blogger, but haven't found that yet.

I agree about the word verification. I hate it! It's so hard to read what needs to be verified and I usually have to do it 2-3 times. Even more frustrating. :)

Good luck and if you find a solution, please blog about it!

Have a great day.

So glad you posted this. I'll be anxious to see the comments from others how they are handling it. I moderate comments and still get a ton of spam in my emails. I also report them as spam yet they still keep coming, but atleast not on the blog. It's very annoying and seems to have increased for even a small blogger like me. I too would love to know if there is a way to stop this. Thanks!

I have my comments set so that registered users only can comment. It might make it harder for some people to comment but it cuts way down on the spam so it's worth it.

Over the past couple of months, I've noticed an increase in spam comments too, and my blog audience is small! The amount of spam increases after I've participated in link parties, so I suspect that's the root cause. Like so many people, I really dislike word verification. I'm thinking about returning to moderating all comments before they are posted.

I've been having the same problem and I haven't been blogging for months. It is really aggrivating.

Kristi your not alone, I get so much spam it's frustrating!! I know wordpress has box you have to check before you publish a comment saying check to verify your not a spammer. That's what we need!

I'm so sorry you're being bombarded with spam ... I'll be interested to see what others suggest! I know some folks turn on their "moderate comments" feature for a bit when this happens.

I have the same problem, so I had to turn on comment moderation. I really don't like word verification and I hope I never have to get to that point. Very frustrating when you wake up in the morning and your inbox is nothing but spam emails.

I used to get a ton of spam every day. I no longer allow anonymous comments and have not received any spam since I changed it. I really didn't get that many anonymous comments from readers and if someone wants to ask me a question my email is posted in the sidebar.

I'm not sure why, and i'm afraid to jinx myself, but I don't get a lot of spam yet. Maybe my audience is too small haha. Good luck with that, I'm interested to hear how others deal with it.
