  1. Can you fix this

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

  2. Spam it, silly.

  3. Hi kopuru,

    If you get comments like that, please mark them as Spam. Not only will it block comments from that spammer in the future, it helps train the spam software to block more spam.

  4. [sarcasm]Great idea! Posting spam to assist the spammer on getting the word out. [/sarcasm]

    This thread is flagged for Staff to remove the spammer's telephone numbers.

  5. @kopuru
    The vast and overwhelming majority of all so-called information on the internet is spam. Over 80% of all so-called comments submitted to .wordpress.com blogs every day are spam. The worst of all spam containing malware and viruses is not sent to us. It's removed as it could bring down many blogs if opened.

    If Akismet has sequestered these spam comments simply click "empty spam" button.

    If you get spam that slips by Akismet then mark it as spam (do not delete it) and over time Akismet will learn it's spam.

    On the spam that Akismet catches it takes only seconds to click "empty spam" and you don't even have to click "empty spam" if you don't want to. Akismet will maintain comments it has caught for 15 days from the time they were received, and then it will delete the comment automatically.

    For more information please take the time to read "5 things every blogger should know about spam" on this page Akismet: How it works http://akismet.com/how/
