Putting Pen To Paper has been spammed!

Spammers! UGH! So what to do?? I may have to monitor comments for a time. By the by.(Blogger is makin' me mad too.)

  1. I don't know what "being spammed" is, slammed with comments? How awful! What has blogger done? We cannot contact them and I dislike that.

  2. Ugh. Sorry to hear this, Robyn! Are you getting a lot of it?

  3. Blogger seems to be having a lot of problems at the moment.
    Spam should be automatically redirected to your Spam comment folder and as I said the other day I've had to switch browsers just so that I can post comments.
    I hope they get their act together soon!

  4. Davin, I'm getting A lot. Bad stuff too. One woman followed (I blocked her) and when I clicked over to see her blog, it was full of children having sex with adults. (I'm reporting it.) Then advertiser stuff. I did what Michael suggested, but my spam filter is on. UGH. I hate this.

  5. Paul, I tried switching to Chrome, but it wouldn't let me. Do you know why? Something about administrator mumbo jumbo. *sigh*

  6. Ack! That's awful, Robyn. I had a woman leave me a twitter link like you mentioned above. I was horrified.

  7. Yikes. I didn't know that could happen.

    Robyn - that is truly awful.

  8. Shannon, did you report it? And do you know where I should go to report it? Do tell, bff. (If you know.)

  9. Ellie, bad, really bad. I'm thinking of moderating comments for a bit. And blogger is making it impossible for me to post. It took twenty tries just to get this post up. UGH

  10. That's horrible! I'm so sorry. I monitor comments on all posts over five days old, and so far my spam thing has done great. You could also turn off your "anonymous commenting". That might help. Good luck!

  11. Jess, oh yeah, the anonymous commenting. I'll try it. And monitor comments over a few days old. Maybe that'll help. It's SOOO disheartening. *sigh*

  12. That's aweful, Robyn! Have you turned on your Spam Filter?

  13. It is Nas. I don't want to moderate comments, but... I may have to.

  14. I'm in the process of switching to wordpress for my blog. I'm moderating comments older than 7 days. i did get some weirdo make a comment but I deleted it :0)

  15. Oh my, that's awful. Ugh, feeling for you.

  16. Robyn - poor thing! That is awful! I didn't know it could get as bad as you're describing. Especially awful to have such things on the blog of someone who writes for children. I've had a lot of blogger problems lately, too, but not like yours. Good luck getting everything straightened out, and give us a post on what works for you if you do!

  17. Sheesh, I'm sorry they got to you. Lit Lab sometimes gets spam (and you can see it if you subscribe to posts) but I don't think they end up actually appearing in comments. Good luck. I hope you can get it cleaned up fast.

  18. Prayers for you to get this thing out of your life!
    Deep breaths and know that you are loved.

    "For we do not fight against flesh and blood but against principalities and powers of darkness." Be we know someone who is stronger than the darkest power and through Him we can be more than conquerors!!!

    Go Robyn!!!
