Actually that is probably a silly question really! Maybe I should ask if anyone else knows they have this problem?
I kept thinking that I would make a post about this, but just kept putting it off. But what happened on Thursday night, and the fact that I have just posted a question about it in Blogger forum, has finally pushed me enough to "get to it!!"
I had been getting suspect comments on my posts from time to time, but I would just trashcan it. But on Thursday night I opened up my email to 14!!!! yep 14 of them. This charming piece of trash had gone into my blog and left one of these extremely rude spam emails one after the other on 14 different posts.
Now this isn't just any old spam. Every one of them has been in Chinese and they all lead back to a perfectly legitimate Chinese Blog site.
But the twist is that each comment is just a LONG list of LOTS of phrases, that to me look like they are in Chinese. But, each of them is a link in itself and on clicking one of them, I'm led to an adult content site. Too charming!
Or another trick is to leave a comment that looks like a strange sort of proverb, but then it's followed by a LOOOOOOOOONG string of full stops (periods), and each of them is a link to an adult content site! I discovered this one day while reading one of these comments and my cursor moved over the top of a dot.
Totally unbelievable!!!!.........or maybe not so unbelievable given what goes on in the world these days. Very sad really.
I have seen these comments left on other blog sites as well, all over the place, and I've mentioned it in my comments in case these bloggers haven't caught on.
After finding one of them on a most favourite blog this afternoon, I went into Blogger forum and posted there hoping to find out if anything can be done to stop them doing it. I know it will probably be a really hard call for Blogger, but it's worth a try.
The problem is, I would think, that they are opening up legitmate blogs, but then don't do anything with them, just use them as a way under the radar to leave their smutty little links.
And I know I could moderate my comments so they can't appear on my posts, but this isn't going to stop them doing what they do. Unless of course we could get every blogger, everywhere to moderate their comments!! lol. What would be the chances of that??
Anyhoo, I've had my gripe, and suppose, managed to warn others if they want to be warned.
Don't get me wrong please. I have no problem with people visiting any site they wish, doing anything they wish in their private lives. To each her/his own. But what I do object to is these lowlifes leaving their rubbish on my site without my permission, and when I've expressly mentioned it above the comment box!
Thank you one and all. I now step down from my soap box. :)))))
May your neighbors respect you, troubles neglect you, the angels protect you, and Heaven accept you.
