Something weird happened in November, I got hit by a truckload of Spam-comments and I spent a lot of time checking them out. A lot of the spam were from Romania, a wave of ‘nice’ comments were dropped with an intense pase. I also receive a lot of adult comments with a bunch of links in tham.
I am so glad i have Akismet who caught this early and flagged a lot of European spammers. Some were incorrectly flagged as spam but that is easy to fix but it takes a lot of time to go through all the comments.
I guess both LinkLove and being on follow-lists has its good and bad sides.
