Spam replies to posts

  1. I keep getting spam replies with nothing but advertisement links to someone's site as a comment to posts. What do I do?
    Blog url: http://klothconsulting.wordpress.com/

  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 Akismet has sequestered these spam comments simply click "empty 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.

    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

  3. You don't really have any posts. Just one 'sort of' post from 2010 that just asks people to ask you a question. I would think that is open season for spammers.
