Blog Spam

I have been just looking at some of SallyinNorfolk‘s spam statistics. SpamKarma has achieved the following in the past 6months:-

  • Total Spam Caught: 47857 (average karma: -12846.66)
  • Total Comments Approved: 626 (average karma: 472.75)
  • Total Comments Moderated: 56

She is now the target of scrapers who are ripping her content.In the two days she has had WP-ban in place. The following addresses have been caught:-     Has tried 10 times.   Once Once Once Once

Interestingly I don’t get hit as much , Sally thinks that spammers are targeting subjects such as food and exercise.

Thank goodness for all the good folks writing wordpress plugins.
