Is WordPress working on the "Like Spam" problem?

  1. Site owners desperately need to be able to remove the disingenuous "Like"s from their blog posts and to be able to block these people who use our sites for their own personal financial gain. Thank you for your reply. John

    The blog I need help with is ourretiredlife.org.

  2. Staff is not working on this and it's clear from past responses in more than one thread that Staff do not consider it to be an issue. How indeed can we prove that any Gravatar user who chooses to click a like button did that when they did not appreciate our post content? the answer is that we can't and a WordPress.com account has always been a Gravatar account.

    Bottom line:
    I'm sorry but we cannot delete the individual likes others leave on our posts even those that are from obvious like button spammers. All we can do is what's here.

  3. Lovely. So then Matt will continue to help the spam community and assure that site owners can not stop the spam. Ludicrous. Please close this useless thread.
