There seems to be a new breed of Internet spammer out there. I’ve just done a bit of maintenance on the website, and within seconds – even nanoseconds – I had received 13 comments, 12 of which were advertising their services and had absolutely nothing to do with any of my posts. Thank heavens for Akismet!
If you have a WordPress site, and you haven’t got Akismet set up, then hurry up and do it. It really is an absolute must.
In some ways it’s a relief from the appalling random spam that made no sense whatsoever, which seems to have disappeared – at least in my universe. But it’s still pretty tedious. A new form of cold calling, and yet one more thing that gives internet marketing a bad name.
