Does anyone have issues with some spammer out there trying to post comments on your blog that's a bunch of Chinese lettering, which is a link to something? I've never clicked on it because I don't want to know what that link leads to. But I have to monitor all my comments, and I require a captcha. So, it's an actual person putting them up, which I just keep rejecting. But they are insistent. And now they come under different names, several times for each blog entry. It's annoying, and I'm not sure how to get it to stop. Anyone have this issue with blogging and know how to avoid it?


  1. Hmmm, that annoying idiot tried to post on this one twice. I will never approve those comments, nor will I ever click the darn link. So, you're wasting your time, sweetheart. I'm reporting it.

  2. One of the good things about wordpress is that they filter that kind of stuff. They put them in a separate area in my dashboard, so I can just scan through them when I have like 30 or so in there, all at once. Then select all & delete. Or, uncheck the one that's a legit comment.

    Though wordpress doesn't allow javascript (well, in the free version where they host your blog on their server), so there's the downside to it.

    I think what you're doing is all you can really do.
