Grrr! Go away spam bots






A while back I had to stop allowing anonymous comments, because I was getting so much spam (mostly Russian).

Now the little rotters are getting more crafty. I just banned half a dozen spam bots with LJ accounts.
 

Anyone else noticed an upsurge?

Yes, definitely! It's very annoying.

I seriously thinking of allocating a place in special hell for spammers, alongside rapists, child molesters and people who talk in theaters.

Yes. I had three hit yesterday alone, and I haven't had any in a few weeks.

I wonder why they bother. They must know they'll get banned.

My spam intake has been a lot lower lately, and I think that's because I haven't been posting as much.

sadly, I haven't noticed the same. I haven't been posting, but I'm being bombarded by spam. :(

I hadn't had any in a while and then had three yesterday, so I assume we're all getting the same barrage.

I wouldn't be surprised.

I'm getting a lot, I'd say 1-4 messages daily. Most of them are on old posts--the same old posts over and over again, for some reason.

I have most definitely seen more Canned Luncheon Meat lately. Also in Cyrillic. It's becoming an almost daily issue.

I don't get that many on LJ, and I report them, which usually has the same effect as banning them. Where I realyl get hit hard with them is on Blogger. One or two, I heavily debated, but when it comes to links to porno and escort sites... Spam filter, non-approval. Huzzah, moderation! Luckily, I don't get much.

Of course, I may have jinxed my good fortune, admitting that.....

I had to disable comments entirely on the blog at FindAWritingGroup.com

Nope, but I only have 14 LJ friends.

Lol, and none of them Russian :)

Yep. I kept getting spam comments on the same old post so I ended up "editing" the post and taking away the comment option on it. It was fine for a while, but the bots found another post to spam. I closed it to comments too, but today they found another one. =( At least they're old posts so I don't feel bad about closing them to comments. Still, it's a P-A-I-N!!!


I don't read Russian, but I'm sure they're spam. =)

I had 4 of them, on 3 different posts ranging from 2007 to last year. According to Google, the Russian for spam is "спам."
