ActiveRain Tutorials: Would You Like A Side of Spam with That? Of Course Not!!

Would You Like A Side of Spam with That? Of Course Not!!

REMEMBER HIT THE REPORT A CONCERN BUTTON, DON'T JUST DELETE SO WE CAN TRACK THE IP ADDRESS & CATCH THESE RASCALS!

Also, there is no need to submit trouble tickets regarding this spam.  We are aware of the issue & are working hard to to stop it.  Simply Report a concern & we will handle it from there.

Sorry to everyone!

I don't know exactly what else to say other than, I'm sorry. 

(Hi. Whatever you fear most has no power - it is your fear that has the power. Help me! Could you help me find sites on the: Wash hookless shower curtain. I found only this - spotted shower curtain. Nice! Love the shower curtain good choice, and this one will probably last longer than the one from target. Hookless shower curtain ezinearticles. With best wishes :rolleyes:, Neta from Tajikistan.)

If you are reading this, you probably have been swamped today from a ton of spam comments. We are doing everything we can on our end currently to stem the tide of this garbage. 

In order to put an absolute stop to spam comments right now, go to the 'settings' link on the left hand side of your my home page and uncheck the box that says 'allow non-member comments'

Mine is set to allow non-member comments. You want to uncheck it, then hit update. Of course, that will stop consumers from commenting on your blog. However until we can get this knocked out, that is your best option.

(Hello. I'm all in favor of keeping dangerous weapons out of the hands of fools. Let's start with typewriters. Help me! Could you help me find sites on the: English bachelor degree online. I found only this - second bachelor Degree nursing programs. Online bachelor degree programs go mainstream. Online bachelor degree programs go mainstream. Thank you very much :o. Abira from Israel.)

Jorgen, Mike and Diego are monitoring and blocking IP addresses and blocks of IP addresses in an effort to thwart these rascals. If it's a battle of wills, Jorgen will win, I promise.

If you can believe this, it appears as if these are real people leaving these comments. Most likely sitting in a room somewhere overseas being paid pennies every time they leave a couple hundred of these links. Whatever you do, DO NOT CLICK THEM. Even if you are like me and love Nike Air Jordan's, I promise you that the page you land on is not going to be a place you want to be. 

(Hello. Everyone wants to be Cary Grant. Even I want to be Cary Grant. Help me! Could you help me find sites on the: Texas transmission. I found only this -electric companies in north texas. Helps texans evaluate and choose from among many texas electric companies. Online pharmacy cheap meridia texas electric companies low cost car insurance phentermine mexico buy phentermine us pharmacy phentermine wordwide shipping. Best regards :rolleyes:, Runa from Bhutan.)

I'll let you know on this post when it is safe to allow non-member comments.

Again, we are terribly sorry for the inconvenience and hopefully you can hang in there with us as we work to get this taken care of. If you can't, feel free to call me and rip into me, I'm a big boy, I can take it :-)

I assumed I could delete AFTER hitting "report a concern" - is that true or not?

I am also reporting but then right after that Im hitting the delete button. Do we need to wait to delete it for a while or can we get rid of it immediately?
