Getting the Cling of Word Press

I’m thrilled that I switched to Word Press (installed on the server I use) to run my web page. It’s truly remarkable software. I would recommend it, and nothing else, to those starting a new blog. It is such a different online world from when I started “blogging” in 1998! (It wasn’t actually “blogging” back then, because the term hadn’t yet been invented, assuming¬†Wikipedia correctly reviews the matter.)

Soon after switching to Word Press, I got deluged with spam comments. So I turned on moderation. (Others I know installed Disqus to handle comments, but I dislike adding anything that requires users to set up yet another account.)

So now I get “only” a handful of spam comments each day. Still, it’s a little odd, given that I moderate all comments and don’t find it remarkably difficult to weed out the spam.

I must wonder who it is presenting these comments for my moderation. Consider the following:

You actually make it seem really easy along with your presentation however I in finding this matter to be really one thing that I feel I would by no means understand. It kind of feels too complicated and extremely broad for me. I’m having a look ahead to your subsequent publish, I will attempt to get the cling of it!

I’m afraid I don’t quite get the cling of what these spammers hope to accomplish. But perhaps I need merely look ahead to the spammers’ subsequent comment. Will it be submitted to this very post?

  1. This is so awesome: “How To Be On TV” already posted a spam comment! I initially let it through just for laughs, but then I got worried about possible nastiness on the other side of the link. But the comment itself is worth repeating here: “Thanks a lot for sharing this with all people you really recognize what you are speaking approximately! Bookmarked. Kindly additionally seek advice from my site =). We can have a hyperlink exchange agreement between us” Genius, I tell you!

  2. I get hundreds of these weird submissions per day.

    Either they are hoping people will visit the URL attached as their “homepage”, email them, or they are posting a semi-plausible comment to try and get onto your approved commenters list, at which point they will open the spam floodgates.
