Akismet picks them all up but there are so many. Could my blog have been hacked somehow? If you answer can you keep it simple please … I’m a writer not a computer nerd :) The blog I need help with is angelajardine.com.

There are 274 comments in your spam queue right now.` October 22, 2013 at 1:55 pm #1491352 angiejardineMember Thank you so much for your reply, tandava … you seemed to know exactly how to reassure me that a couple of hundred spam comments is not unusual. I can rest easy now. :) Namaste. Author Posts The topic ‘Drowning in spam’ is closed to new replies.
