I’m sick of Spam on my blog!
Good job we have a nice little gizmo built into the back office of WordPress called Akismet that grabs it and puts it in the trash folder for me to check it first. Strangely enough, Akismet is always right :-)
So, I’m going to start naming and shaming the spammers in an effort to Stop the Spam Spread as it’s the same trash I receive every day :-(
You think by now they might realise it just isn’t going to happen for them wouldn’t you?
Today’s SPAM was received from:

Apparently, my blog is “really informative and I should keep up the great work, many people will be benefitted from this site, it’s also incredible and I have some very valid points but maybe I could do with some RSS feeds and some cheap supplements?”
Now, do you think I designed my site “using the default topic tools?”
You are very welcome to send your answers to me on a postcard but please no more crappy spammy comments on my blog if you have absolutely nothing useful to say!
For all you serious bloggers, keep an eye on the email addresses and take note of the sites and comments. How many of them end up on yours too?

Today must be “supplements” day! Same text on both comments in response to my blog posts about cake stands and a heritage listed building.
Yep, I think I can see the connection :-D

So now I’ve decided I’m no longer being polite – I’ve put the @ back into the email addresses to expose them in their entirety. Over the next couple of weeks when I will have a little more time to spend at home I’m going to report each and every one to their hosting companies.
