Most Of My Spam Is Coming From China

I had 80 comments in my Spam folder this morning and most of them were about online casinos and they had Chinese characters in them.  This just started about two weeks ago and it seems to be getting worse every day.  Some of the comments are nice and they said things like, “Great blog, continue the good work!”, or “I could not resist commenting. Well written!”, or “Your website is extremely helpful. Thank you for sharing!”, or “You’ve made some good points there”, or “Aw, this was an exceptionally good post”, or “Saved as a favorite, I really like your web site!”  To me all of these comments are all Spam, as they don’t have a Gravatar and I delete them every day.

China is on a global hacking spree and these hackers are all trying to suck up to me.  I am sure that they all have evil intentions.  These sites have all left multiple comments on my blogs: 먹튀사이트, 먹튀검증, 먹튀검증사이트, and 광주출장안마 and I am fed up with it.

  1. Doesn’t sound good to get so many like that.
    I used to know where to find spam comments to delete, but since the menu thing changed I have no idea how to see them. There could be millions I don’t know about by now. Ugh!

    1. When I am logged into WordPress there is a Menu bar on the left side of my screen and it has Icons that take you to different submenus. Up near the top is a house and that takes you to MY Home and just below that is 3 vertical bars which takes you to Stats and Insights. Next is a shopping cart which takes you to Plans and below that is a thumb tack which takes you to posts. The next symbol is hard to describe, but I am going to say that it is two weird rectangles and that will take you to Media Library. Below that is two pages and that takes you to Pages. A dialog box is below that and that is where you get to your Comments. Inside the Comments you will see All (43,196), Mine (16,466), Pending (0), Approved (43,196), Spam (0) and Trash (0).

  2. I’m not surprised. I’m very glad that the filters seem to catch most spam both here on WordPress and with my e-mail. Much better than it used to be 10 years back. But of course, once in awhile one gets through.

  3. I’ve begun to get one or two such emails in my email account. Also some in Arabic I think or another character based language similar to Arabic. I just immediately “spam” them, I don’t open them and I certainly don’t interact with them. I agree with Sadje that blocking those bozos is the best idea!

  4. I just checked and in the last 24 hours I received almost 600 comments in my spam folder and more than 300 in my trash folder. A lot in my spam folder were from Canadian pharmacies…or that’s what the URLs suggested.
