Take a Hike Abdul and Imran

May 31, 2014



Lately my one most pinned post has been inundated with spam comments, I mean about 10 per day! If you are Abdul, Imran, Abbas or whatever, I am glad you are enamoured with my post and how it's your favourite and the posh families around the world can appreciate curtains and blinds, but stop leaving comments. I don't really care about blinds, panel beaters and "thanking you pick a box". Their comments never make any sense, I used to find them humorous and now they are a thorn in my side.


So, since my lovely friends love to keep commenting about silly useless things, I now have to add the my most detested word verification in order to leave a comment, I am sorry. I have managed to avoid it for the past 4 years but this spam is annoying!


I hope this doesn't deter you from leaving a comment, please do, it makes my day!

  1. I have mine set that I have to authorize comments on posts older than a week. Have you tried that? I get a bunch of spam every day, but it all goes right to spam!

  2. How annoying! I get spammed once in a while and they tend to hit about 5 posts at a time. I've been avoiding the word verification too.

  3. I got hacked and get spammed and so WV is a reality for me!
    Truly your blog is worth the tiny effort to let you know you are read and appreciated!

  4. I hear ya, Barbara! Who has time for that? Do you already use the Akismet spam filter plugin for wordpress? I find it very effective. Also I have it set so that I have to approve all first time comments from people that make it through Akismet. Once they are approved once then the rest go up automatically.

  5. Ugh, I hear ya! That's why approve each one. It means comments stay in limbo until I have a chance, but it also means no word verification (they do deter me sometimes, but I often get it wrong and grow frustrated). I like approving comments because it means I get a chance to reply to questions, etc. Before they would just come in and I didn't spot new comments on older posts. Still, would be nice if spammers didn't make us do things we didn't want to do. Le Sigh.
