Comment Spammers- beware!

Hi all, I have just checked my email and was surprised to see I had a sudden influx of about 40 comments on my posts. I thought this was highly unusual and got most suspicious when I noticed the comments said things like 'wow nice picture' on the posts with no pictures...! I went to check out the profiles/ blogs of these 'people' and their link took me straight to some pile of crap world of war craft 'gold for sale' site. I just wanted to let you know in case you get spammed by them too. I had word verification on so someone has actually sat there and typed in these comments- how sad for them. I have now decided to moderate my comments so sorry to all those of you who normally comment here, but it will take a bit longer to have your comment show up. Also, I am going to try and remove all these crap comments so none of you get fooled into accidentally going to their sites, but this may mean I remove some legitimate ones in the process by mistake. Be back soon with a new post including pictures of my place in France.


  1. Thank you for this warning. It is frustrating to think we have to sometimes alter our lives because others want to encroach upon our way of doing things. I am sorry you are having to deal with these comment spammers.

    On a happier note, I'm looking forward to your pictures of your place in France :)


  2. What a bummer! Hope they don't show up on my site, either.
    Good God, people...get a REAL job!

  3. Do what you have to do to eliminate these rotten spammers. I haven't had that problem yet, but I would do exactly what you are doing. I'm looking forward to your next post.
