Im just curious is anyone else getting comments from people they dont know in a language you dont speak (or in this case read)? I get at least 3 or 4 a day and its driving me crazy!!!!! Some of them I can read and they are advertisements for some kind of scam, others will have a bunch of symbols with once in awhile a word in english and the word is usually something to do with sex...Im just curious if this kind of thing is happening to anyone else out there and if you know how you get it to stop!! I just reject the comments and dont let them be published but I wasnt sure if there was something that can be done to get them to stop all together....if anyone has an idea on what can be done about this PLEASE let me know!!!

Reckon I'm not as popular as you cuz I don't get those on my blog.

It's called blogging spam and there's nothing really that can be done about it more than what you've done, comment moderation and rejection.

You can cut out the automated ones by putting in the word verification, that helps a lot. Even then, some sneaky ones try to get through.

In the six months I've been blogging, I've only had a few, and they started very recently. I guess if you change your settings to not allow anonymous comments, it would get rid of them.

I got one quite awhile ago, but that was the only one..and haven't had any since...but now that I've said that, I'll probably have a crap-ton of them now...LOL :o)
