Spam Sandwich Anyone?!?!

Unfortunately I have been bombarded with Spam as of late. Since the spammers leave their comments anonymously I cannot trace where they are coming from. I have sent e-mails to some of the companies that the spam is representing asking them for their cooperation in the matter. This leaves me no choice but to turn on comment moderation. I have chosen to do this so that only the older posts are moderated because that seemed to be where they were going. Until the spam subsides I will keep this option on. To my loyal readers and commenters, please accept my apologies for moderating your wonderful and appreciated comments. Like the old saying goes, "One bad apple spoils the whole bunch".

Good gravy - the first comment on this post is SPAM, as to illustrate your point.
I say: turn on your comment moderation - where you accept or reject comments - for a while.
Put up a post to your real readers, apologizing for the moderation, but your friends will understand.
I've had to do this for posts more than 5 days old on my blogs, but you seem to be getting hit on new posts too.
What a shame there are a-holes out there who do this.
Sending HUGS,

Mo, it's so frustrating! I hate to have to turn on comment moderation because quite frankly I don't have time to "moderate"! *sigh* But, it is looking like that just might be what I have to do. :(

Anonymous...Bye-bye...DELETE! You're going to be deleted, moderated or not so really you're just wasting your time as well as mine!!!

I can totally sympathize with you on this one, Tish. I have Comment Moderation on for posts older than 3 days and I also make sure I delete any new spam that I get as soon as I notice it. I don't want to turn on total moderation as I can't get to my Blogger Dashboard when I'm at work so wouldn't want to be working some of the hours I do and not be able to have people interact with other comments if they'd like.

It really is too bad that there are some bad apples out there but I'm afraid there always will be.

I've been doing comment moderation for a long time. It's somewhat of a hassle, but it avoids the garbage that tends to filter through.

Happy belated birthday to you ;-)
I've noticed more spam lately too. It's really a shame. I'm celebrating my 1st Blogoversary at Happily Retired Gal
Hugs and blessings,

At least at this point, I don't have enough readers to attract any Spam. I guess that's the up side of flying under the radar.

Anonymous comments will be deleted if they are spam or have inappropriate language in them...PERIOD!
