comments from google news and reviews - what are they
I'm obviously not important enough to get these, got an example?
At a guess I would say they're Spam but can't be sure.
This is what it looks like:
New trackback on your post #6 "Priština Negotiation Party"

Google news and reviews...
You can see all trackbacks on this post here:
I've also got no idea what it is, and would love to know.
http://tor.neg9.org/ isn't a good clue, at least for me :)
Thanks for that. Definitely looks like spam to me!
Google.ru does resolve to *a* google, whether it's an official one or not I don't know.
OOPS!:O I'm sorry about that folks. I obviously left a title on the forum but no contents in the box :O. [outer limits theme plays in background]. Anyway I sent in feedback and received aresponse - these "google comments and review thingees" are spam.
Thanks for the confirmation TT! :)
188.8.131.52 is 100% *NOT* a Google IP.
Unless they're leasing $75 a month servers form some company called Swift which is where the IP points to.
This threads says its spam. I tend to agree although I have yet to see one of these.
I tried to scrounge one out of my deleted email file which is usually full. However, I had a neat freakout before going to bed and jettisoned eveything. Just a second [she goes to check he sent email mailbox]
Nerts! This is all I found - no copy of the original "google comments and reviews" example which I sent in on feedback.

This is part of a new wave of spam.
Mark them as spam and remove. Akismet will have started catching them already so they should disappear fast.
Sorry about that!
Maybe podz kept a copy of the example I sent?
Just checked but I don't have any of those in my spam queue nor in my passed through comments that didn't get caught. I do have 75 caught ones though. I must have lucked out. :)
I've been getting a few 'Blog Verification' ones. Then they leave a bunch of numbers as their comment.
Thanks for the heads up nosysnoop.
Just got one as well. Coming out of Belgium. Probably a spammer looking for sites. Just make sure it's marked as spam and move on. :)
