spam coming from my site to others

    I had a friend tell me today that she is receiving some spam and she believes it is coming from when she posted a comment on my blog. I am waiting for her to let me know what identifying information was there that indicated it was coming from blog. Is anyone else having that problem? Thanks Kathy

  2. The vast and overwhelming majority of all so-called information on the internet is spam. Over 80% of all comments submitted to .wordpress.com blogs every day are spam. 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.

    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

    Of course, the blogsphere is full of spammers. they wait for us to approve a single spam comment and then they all come at our blogs. That's why it's important to learn how to spot spam. Some is obvious and some is harder to detect. Lorelle's article is a good one (all of her posts are) > http://lorelle.wordpress.com/2006/09/23/how-to-spot-a-splog/
