Blogs Can Beget Spam

Blogging is a very public act.  We bloggers put ourselves out there in order to bring in business, to network and to make friends.  Along with that exposure we open ourselves up to those potential and unwanted attacks from Spammers. 

 

Earlier this year I slowly started to get spam on my Hyper-local Posts; a few here a few there.  Seemed like a handful of people were testing out their English. 

 

Then it was like a crescendo, until one day a few months ago it was non-stop, every 5 minutes. The Spam was spreading out to all my Localism posts over the last year. 

 

I called ActiveRain and was told to stop the Outside Comments for a while on the Settings Page. “Give it a rest for a few weeks”.  I've turned the Commenting Setting on here and there, but the spam just starts up again.

 

Thank you to Judi Boad for re-blogging Michael Thornton's post "Spam, Spam and More Spam..." which inspired this post.

 

Now because of those two posts I have the Monty Python’s tune “Spam” stuck in my head. 

 

 

Happy Blogging Everyone!
