An attack of spam!
I noticed an increase in the number of spam comments left in five of my blogs. I don’t know why and I’ve been observing it for now. I’m banning IP addresses of the spammers but it seems to me they’re just using another IP to leave more spam comments.
I don’t know if you are doing the same thing but I check spam comments daily, sometimes twice or thrice a day. This blog was attacked by a script virus of some kind in the past. I don’t want that to happen again. I got it from a spam comment and that attack left me working on all my blogs for three days.
Check your spam comments daily. Delete it. Do not let it sit idle there taking up precious space.
