I don’t LIKE spam!

My LJ has been getting a huge number of spam comments lately. I’ve seen occasional bouts of spam over the years, but in the last couple of weeks I’ve been deleting at least one per day. Since I woke up Saturday, I’ve deleted five. Four of them are a new type: a fake account posting the same message, ending in the same link, to different entries of mine posted years ago. The account profiles all said they were from different countries, but I suppose that could be spoofed.

Are you who are LJ users noticing this, too?

About songdogmi

I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.

    Where’s my viking helmet? I’m not prepared for this skit….

    They’re probably discriminating against donkeykind. Ordinarily I’d suggest organizing a protest, but maybe not in this case.
