Site Parasites

“I visit this blog first time and inspire by this good stuff work. Incredible post keeps up posting such great information. If you like to travel then you can use munnar call taxi for a trust worthy travel.”

This incoherent word (rather, a term that rhymes with word) salad appeared recently as a “comment” one of my posts. A URL, which I assume would garner malware should I be foolish enough to open it, was appended.

My blogs have been hit by this and other online parasites phishing/pushing some scam or another. Nothing I can do except report these polluting posts as “objectionable content” and then hide the drivel from view or delete it..

Anyway, I’m curious as to whether these scum are hitting other blogs on danvillesanramon. If your blog has been smeared by this digital dreck, let me know. More important, let danvillesanroman know.

Thanks.

Hey John: I get them sometimes in the middle of the night, usually hawking some term paper service. If you log into the site where you post your blog, you'll see each Comment adjacent to your post. Hit 'edit' below the comment, then you can either hide the comment, remove the url from it or substitute your own stuff into the spam. Email me your phone number if you want to go over it 'live.'

Thanks, Tom. I'm already doing all this. I get a variety of digital detritus, including from the term-paper t()rds. Just keep blowin' 'em away.

John,

I've been getting the term paper links on my blogs for over a year. I sometimes hide the comments or just edit out the links. I think some of these are automated spam.

Some of my older blogs are getting new comments now with these links. I'm not sure how to prevent them other than hiding them or editing out the links like Tom says.

Roz
