My phone turns of the sound from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. every night. Normally this works just fine, even on weekends, but this morning at 6 a.m. my very pleasant chime that I’ve put on my Nokia E61i for email notification started chiming every couple of minutes! I was getting hammered with “comments” added to my site (which are always moderated), and then I got a message from Google that my blog had been compromised. It’s fixed now, but it’s annoying!
Being in the anti-spam business myself, I DO know that there must be SOME return on “investment” for these folks. I mean, if every site blocked their missives, if no one clicked on a link, if no one bought their wares, they would stop right (well, all but the most anti-social of the bunch I guess)? But my WordPress “spam” has become almost as back as my email spam! All I can say is “grumble”.
So anyway, I’ve fixed the problem, and asked Google to recheck the problem, but for those of you who got a warning accessing the site this morning, so sorry!
Stay cool (I have that on the brain right now, living in the Denver area!)
