165 New Comments in 3 Days!!! #commentspam

3 days ago I had about 75 comments…today I had 240! At first I was stoked! Then I realized there must be a mistake. After looking a little deeper I realized I didn’t have my spam filter plugin activated…and that I was now the proud owner of 165 new spam comments¬†:-/

Check out this video to find out how to prevent this nightmare :-)

    Great video! Akismet is on all my blogs! I love it! Also try Bad Behavior. :)

    Dude, that’s a huge bummer. Those bots are annoying. Glad you got it sorted!

      Yeah it’s crazy that those people actually think that it’s a good strategy.
