Spam 'likes' keep appearing despite lack of 'like' button

  1. Spammers starting liking some of my posts so I hid the 'like' button from public view. But I'm still getting spam likes. How is this possible? When I check to make sure the like button is indeed not visible, everything looks like I want it to. Thanks in advance.

  2. You did not specify a blog address or reason for posting when you created this topic.

  4. Hi there,
    If you assign tags and /or categories to your posts they appear in the Reader and the like button is available for use. See here http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/new-way-to-spam/page/2?replies=76#post-1216077 and here http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/new-way-to-spam/page/2?replies=76#post-1220263

  5. culturalexcision.wordpress.com is no longer available.
    The authors have deleted this site.

    The blog linked to your username is history. What is the URL of the blog you are referring to please?

  6. Got it, thank you!

    The message you received is from another blog not related to me. When I created my account, I found out after the fact that I couldn't use the same account name for my blog. So my blog is a modification: culturalxcision.wordpress.com

  7. You're welcome.
