How I Got Spammed

Call me low-tech or whatever, but I cannot think of how spammers located my blogs and spammed them left, right and centre. The thing is that there are no visitors to my blog that I could trace as spammers. And yet these robots know which post to spam me. Hhmm how ah?

Ok, so I know that they do not need to come to my blog once they have my URL but they did not even come when they left me the very first spam comment.

Right now, the amount of spam comment is still manageable so I am not using a spam filter. What’s so good about WordPress when the amount of spam comments a day is more than what I received in my Blogger blog since the day it was set up?

Well, I don’t know. Seems like even spammers are higher-tech than I am!

  1. There’s really no issue with using software to separate out the spam and it does work so it will remove that particular headache straightaway for you.

    The two best for WordPress are Akismet and SpamKarma and both are free. Personally I use Akismet and haven’t lost any “real comments” but it does filter out over 95% of spam comments.

    All the best!

  2. Hi Mark,

    Thanks for your comment! It’s getting mighty quiet over here hahah! :B

    Yes, I do know of the spam filters but since the spam comments are still manageable, I’ll just clear them up manually.

    I find some of them really funny and they do cheer me up so it’s not all bad! I even placed the outstanding ones in a category.

    And by the way, I nearly deleted your comment too :p
