Damn You All the Way to Hades..

No, sorry, not you. I’m referring to those inconsiderate, mindless, pathetic morons whose idea of fun is to ‘spam’ people. I have just spent the last 15 minutes deleting 463 spam messages from either bots or brainless bastards who want to sell me funeral flowers, payday loans or aquaponics (whatever the hell they are) and I am annoyed! I mean, what’s the bloody point? Do they honestly think that the next time I want a bunch of flowers I’ll contact them? Will sending me 50 separate messages about how great their flowers will look on my coffin tempt me to buy????? No! So, in the name of all that’s holy, why?????

Anyone else suffering with this at the moment? Also, does anyone know if WP have a plan to speed up the process of deleting this insufferable nonsense more rapidly? 463 individual checks in boxes was not my idea of fun!

Rant over :O)

    I detest all the spam, and I’ve now learnt to delete my spam, almost everyday, and I’ve kept up with my new ritual/habit, since I came home from hospital, the initial backlog was horrendous xx

    I thank WordPress for filtering out the spam. So utterly annoying.

    Eugh spam is incredibly frustrating. I also wonder what the point is because unless it contains a virus link to click, surely they gain nothing from it. Apart from perhaps knowing it’s driving us insane! x

    I am fortunate in that I have very little spam. I don’t know if the fact that I use a MacBook has any bearing on that?

    Most of my spam these days is for sneakers, mostly Nike brand. I check spam daily and usually have between 20-30. There is a way to delete all in one step, but sometimes legitimate comments end up in spam, so I go through them one at a time. I do suggest going through it on a daily basis so that you won’t end up with hundreds in your spam filter.

    I get a fair bit of it. A lot of Nike and Adidas stuff. It is annoying.

    It is bizarre isn’t it! How in any way do spammers profit from what they are doing?
    I do find some of the comments in my spam folder pure comedy though!

    Not to that scale but I get a lot of crap about upgrading my blog from some illiterate idiot who says I have “duplicate content”.
    Annoying as hell

    I delete every week. Only 3 or 4 and they want to sell me the hottest new tennis shoe. Are they trying to tell me something?????

      Do you find that it slows your site down? That’s my worry….

        Now you’ve got me curious about what’s in my spam folder
        But I haven’t really noticed anything, although I rarely use anything but my wordpress app in phone

        If everything’s working well I’d just forget the spam – it’s really irritating

        Well, I just looked in the pending comments and found so many comments that I somehow missed so I might need to get back into the habit of checking in on my laptop

        No apologies needed! It was comments from the people I enjoy most on here, so I felt bad for not seeing them earlier
