NO TO SPAM

 

 

Hey darlings! Happy Christmas and a Prosperous New Year to all of you! I have missed you terribly and I promise to come back  very very soon. I miss you and I love you all!

 

By the way, I have been receiving thousands of spam comments lately and I don’t know what else I can do, I am tired of manually deleting all of them, it’s crazy annoying. I have already moderated the comment section on my page, what seems to be causing this?
Have a good day, darlings. I’ll see you next year! I have a lot more surprises for you! How was your holiday? Tell me about it.

      1. Are they going to your spam folder or regular comment section for approval? My spam filter that comes through WordPress does a great job.

      1. If you think about it, it’s really just another form of advertisement, no different then the ad’s greenlighted on this site by the site creators. At its very core is the desire for money. Have you looked at what they’ve commented?

  1. Certain tags or buzzwords attract the spambots. Oddly, they don’t need to be on a particular post, just somewhere in your blog. Increased traffic or a higher number of links on a page will do it too. There isn’t much you can do other than ensure you mark any unfiltered spam comments as spam, and then delete them from the spam folder. This will at least help ‘teach’ Askimet and hopefully improve it.

  2. Happy New Year 🎉, WordPress has stopped most of the spam comments on my blog. One week there was around 20, but that is the most I have had to delete at one time. I would be upset if I got 700 to.

  3. Your post reminded me that I need to empty out my own spam comment folder. Glancing through them it’s scary how legit some of them sound until you look at their emails and the websites they come from.
    700 per day though. They’re probably attracted to you because you’re a popular blogger and if they can manage to slip through, their comment will get lots of views. Sorry you have to deal with all that and it’s too bad there isn’t a “delete all” option when deleting the spam.

      1. The 20 deletion limit must make it time consuming when you have to delete 700 spam comments.
        I am doing alright. Thank you for asking! How are you? Ready for the new year?

  4. I had a problem with that before at one time also. They seem to have filtered down with time, but yet even the legit comments find its way to spam. It gets irritating at times. Keep your head lovely and Happy New Year😊

  6. Happy New Year to you as well!

    I think the best way to resolve this is to heavily moderate your comments until it all subsides. If you can, you should evaluate how many real comments you get and see if it’s worth taking the time to just approve each one. If it’s clearly spam, you can just leave it unanswered and it won’t go through.

    Hope this works for you. Cheers!
