Holy Spam!!

Hi everyone, just dropping to to let you know that I have had a TON of spam this week on my blog, not really sure what that is all about all of a sudden.
I have had a least 2-3 every day this week and it is really annoying!

Anyway, I turned on the word verification for a bit to see if that will help, so sorry.
Hopefully I won't need it for too long.

I am having a great week, it has turned cooler and windier and needless to say that all the pretty leaves are now on the ground.....Yippy, raking!!! :)

I hope you all have a great weekend and I will see you next week!!!

I experimented with not having word verification for a time, but the spam was unbearable. With WV, no spam ... it's no contest, so WV stays for me. No need to apologize for it ... this is your blog, and you can do whatever you like with it. I gladly take the extra nano-second to type my WV characters, if it makes YOUR life easier.


I went forever with no word verification and no spam. Then all of a sudden, it was like the spam devils found me, and I had to turn the verification on, too. I hate spam.

I've gotten to the point where I kind of like word verification. It's like a game to see what words are going to pop up, and what silly thoughts or memories pop into my head because of that word!

that's such a shame

i wonder why it happened
all of a sudden?

i hope it clears up soon for you!

Leaves are coming down here as well, but the trees still look colorful and pretty! Have a splendid weekend Michelle!

Hi Michelle, just a thought..., I have enabled comment moderation "on posts older than one day" to get around the verification thingy. And I'm good! I find that most spam comments happen after a day actually. Don't ask me why!

I received a notification from Google this week of some Malware on a blog I followed but rarely visited...I had to delete all my past posting links to that blog.....That could be the problem....???

Weird! I had been getting blasted with spam, but it went away. Love the fall colors. First colors of fall I have seen this year.

Yuck. I wonder why it just started up for you? I think I've only gotten a handful of spam since starting the blog a year ago. It's annoying, but not frequent enough for me to turn on wv. Hope your spamming problem clears up.

I turned mine back on a few weeks ago too! Spam sucks!!

ANNE said...

that's interesting... i haven't gotten more spam on my blog, but i've noticed a huge increase in email span this last week... wonder what's going on?

Thank goodness I don't have to do either - no snow & no autumns leaves in my garden so I keep fit pulling weeds!

Hi Michelle, blogger has been so weird for me too. I've had virus warnings while visiting some of the blogs I normally do, then I checked my blog health and it said I was fine. Everything's been slow, and lots of folks are having trouble with either spam or just in general. But glad you're enjoying your week, today is unusually hot, and I find myself a bit irritated lol
Other than that, just busy as usual.

You might want to add word verify for each comment. I am glad you decided on the comment pop-up window.

You know I read in a post that word verification turns readers away from commenting...but I dont know how else to secure my blog. I seriously dont understand spammers. What the heck!

I've been having quite a bit of spam too. But they're by "Anonymous" commenters so Blogger spots them and hasn't published them. But they are annoying.
