Spammed!

Am I the only person in J-land who keeps getting spam comments in my journal?  This hadn't happened in a long time, but now I keep getting what appear to be "bot" comments on old entries.  As soon as I discover what's happening, I block that user and delete all comments they've made; next day, they're back with a slightly-altered screen name.

Grrrr.

I got one today.  I think they find certain terms in blogs and post ads based on that.  I had a blog about rude servers (as in waitressing) that I posted over a year ago and got a link in a comment for some internet servers or something.

I've had that happen a few times in the past 2 weeks.  I'm doing the same as you-blocking and deleting.  'On Ya' -ma

I've had them in the past, but not lately.  *sigh*  I'll be watching.

Yep, I have had two lately, one was today. I just leave them be so far and yes one was way back in an entry. Helen

No, I haven't had the problem recently, but yes, I've had it in the past.  Used to make me a bit crazy ... thanks for the heads-up!

I had that happen for a while. It was somebody trying to sell some book or something. Hope you can block them out enough times that it will stop. Kelly

I used to get them, but I just left them there.
