A PSA about SPAM

So, I happily and thankfully got rid of the word verification thingy on my comments.  Which was only there cuz it comes defaulted that way and I never really thought about it as I'm not posting a lot of comments on my own blog.  I did that three nights ago.  Today I got porn spam in my comments for the first time.

It showed up in my email as if it were a comment to the Salads are kryptonite post, though it doesn't show up in the comments.  I don't care and am not planning on putting the word thing back unless I start getting it constantly and it gets on my nerves to have to delete them constantly - but I just thought I should pass along my experience.

That is very interesting. I have never had the word verification, and I have never gotten any spam. Hope it doesn't keep up!

When I first turned mine off I got a few...but since then not a single one. Hang in there!

LMAO

I kid, I kid.
I'm trying to hold myself back from doing another post-fest. I'm high again on exercise endorphins.
I'll wait though, I know you have more to read than just MY blog. :)

I've only gotten 2 or 3 ever. Hooray, it's now easier to comment Read, thanks. :)

That's interesting. I've never had spam comments (so far) and my verification has been off for months and months.

Sorry to hear. It's not really what you want to read first thing in the morning, is it?

Linda said...

Man I've had mine off for ages with no problem. Maybe it's your content. :)

Interstingly, the only weird spam like comment I ever received was when I had the word verification ON. It was so bizarre! But I just had the one.

My word verification is one (I think) and I have had port about 4 times in 3 years...It is easily deletable.

Weird! Mine's been off for a while and I've never gotten any spam (that I know of). Hope it doesn't happen too often!

I use S.E.I Max protein in chocolate. It is very good. The PB2 I got on Amazon...I cannot believe how good it is. I added it to the shake which I make with skim milk and a shot of Toscani Sugar-Free Chocolate syrup. Try it...if you like peanut butter cups, you will love this!

Oh no! This is my fault.
