Are the photo blogs people who spam or spambots?

    I have a question about those photography blogs with zero personality and almost no text but with thousands of comments. Are these blogs run by actual people who spam follower or are these blogs run by spambots? I keep being followed by them and they seem to have an unusual amount of likes and comments considering the content.

    I'd like to find out because I might try contacting them if they're actual people to request that they not spam me. I know it's a waste of time, but I want to feel that I'm doing something to try and stop it, especially since WordPress isn't offering a solution.

    (Also, to pre-empt a response that I've seen quite a bit, if you CAN'T tell me if these commonly seen photo blogs are run by people or spambots, just don't answer. I'm not looking for someone to say: "We have no way of knowing this because of this, that, and the other thing, you pion."

    I'm not trying to be rude; I'm just getting frustrated with the number of forum posts that receive responses like, "How should we know?"

    The blog I need help with is smartstunningsearching.wordpress.com.

  2. How about giving us a link to one of those blogs so we can analyze them? Otherwise we really do NOT have enough information to go on.

    Unfortunately it's against WordPress forum policy to link to spam blogs. If I supply a link, it'll be removed.

  4. The issue is that the comments you are talking about are coming from spammers. But in this case there is a possibility that those blogs would not be spam. You need to analyze both these things bloggers and commenters.
