ad links on my blog. Its my own fault for not moderating the comments and I had stopped blogging for awhile. Luckily I could cut and copy the post over without all those stupid comments. Be careful bloggers, spammers with plaster your blog with ads. They have some type of auto poster software. Has this ever happened to you before?

If you're at Blogger you always have the option of not allowing those spam comments to appear on the post so you don't have to go back and delete them. The best way to go would be to either moderate them all or have the word verification thing up.

Thats really sad that sites are being destroyed. Spammers are no better than scammers then. What a shame they have nothing better to do with their time.

Spammers are always on the lookout for websites that allow DoFollow links. So, blogs with comments enabled are usually good targets. Often blogs using WordPress can easily be found using just any search engine. One defense is to disallow comments. Another is to change the theme or template so it will not contain recognizable search strings. The "Hello World" post in WordPress is one such search string that can easily be found.

I love the comments especially those that help others. Up til now, the comments have been specific so you can tell they actually read the post. I thought it would be more work to approve all comments but I see now its worth it. Thanks for the tip though.

hope you get over this hump sergeant. spammers can really be a big pain in the @rse. you would think that they would have better things to do rather than post gibberish in someone else's blog. it doesn't help if these people are using an auto poster software as well. maybe it's time that ther's an anti-spam software. this hasn't happened to me and i doubt if i'll be as diplomatic as you when i deal with spammers. lol!

There was nothing I could do. There was no email and the commenter name was "anonymous". Thats why I changed my comments to be approved. I was going to report the person to blogger but it was anonymous.
