- Send a desperate letter requesting assistance to Geoffrey – I crown him the BlogSpam Slayer. Hmmmm…..BlamSlayer? Geoffrey, by the way, very graciously helped me a great deal – – and it was out of the kindness of his heart, not because he likes my boobs. (Although, is a self-admitted eye candy slut) Thanks, Geoffrey xoxox
- Make sure you have MT-Blacklist installed — it makes for extremely easy deleting of silly, bored, idiotic, asshat spam comments!
- Track the IP’s of each of the postings — Ban the IP’s – – Ban them all. Add them to your IP Deny Manager if you have access to CPanel through your web host. If you don’t have that kind of access – – switch hosts! *g* If you OWN the web server – – add them to your server Firewall, that way any sites hosted on your server will grab the benefit of being protected by that block of IP’s.
- Make a hot cup of coffee…take a deep breath, sit back and delete the crap.
I came home from work today, sat down to download my email and about 45 minutes later I had downloaded about 4500 email alerts that someone had left comments in my blog. 4500 of them – and only one of them were legit!
I’ve counted about 135 different IP addresses – – all of which I’ve sent emails of complaints to the abuse@’IP holder”, as if that’s going to do anything because this child (or children) is very obviously using proxy servers. But, what the hell?
I then password protected my comments and archives for about an hour while I whined at
Geoffrey The Blam Slayer for a while via email and put his advice into action. I’ve re-opened my comments for the time being to see what happens, if anything. I haven’t instituted his suggestion to do the three number code thing in my comments, yet – – but they may have to be the next step, unfortunately.
To the stupid, pathetic asshat spammer – the wheel’s spinning, but the hamster’s dead, pal. Get a life.
