In the last couple of days I have been inundated with hundreds of spam comments across lots of my posts. After my disappointment of realising I was not actually that popular I went about clicking the spam tab on each comment, I presume this was correct and that then flags up to you?
Would this need investigating as I’m getting a rather sore finger clicking the spam button on each comment :-)
You’re doing the right thing! Comment spam is a plague, and Akismet blocks truckloads of it for us on a regular basis. But spammers try new tactics and it takes a little while for the system to catch on and catch up. Labelling these comments as spam helps the spam filters learn, and hopefully this onslaught will slow down soon. :)
