30 Blogs of November: Day 11 – Spam

Since I started doing the NaBloPoMo challenge I have found an increasing number of spam comments on my blog. I’m thinking part of it stems from the fact that I’ve been posting links to a lot of them to my Twitter page (and we all know how that can be spam central). It doesn’t overly bother me, in fact the spam filter on here works quite well. It’s just that I find some of the comments quite funny – or rather the names of the people doing the commenting. For instance, one of the spam comments came from someone claiming to be Justin Bieber. Really. I don’t know about you, but I think it is highly unlikely that he would want to read a blog like mine. And could you imagine the reaction of the Beliebers if he was a commenter to my corner of the blogosphere? I couldn’t deal with the abuse.

    lol I had my username hijacked for handbag touting! Had to change it when I found ALL my comments to others going straight to the spam-box!

      Nothing like that has happened to me yet. I suppose I should be thankful for the interest the spammers have lol! Just so long as they don’t try and hijack this.

    Suppose it could have been worse things they were using your username for! 🙂
