Spammers following blog

  1. Today I've gotten several messages from WordPress about people following my blog, but they have all been ad locations.

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

  2. 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.

    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.

    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.

    There is no such thing as eliminating all spam but Akismet works very well. 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/

  3. Timethief I read the link you provided. It says to report their blogs, but when I view their profile it's to a Gravatar link. They are to places like

    http://en.gravatar.com/digitalproducts2020

    http://gravatar.com/healthandwellness2020

    http://gravatar.com/creditcardandfinance2020

    http://gravatar.com/appliancefurniture2020

  4. On each Gravatar page on the bottom right hand corner there is a report abuse link you can use.
