Record number of suspicious followers from in Meta

    I am getting about 20-30 “followers” per day signing up on Meta and they all have weird names or “names” with letters and numbers in weird patterns. Most of them have hotmail addresses, and some xyz@ or (email redacted)

    It’s becoming very frustrating and I’ve had to delete the Meta widget. I’m sure a lot of these are just spammers (i.e) Cheep China Watches etc, but the problem now is that i don’t know which followers are real and which ones are spammers.

    Anybody else in this situation? Any solutions? Thanks in advance

    That is not a free hosted blog issue. We do not provide support at WordPress.COM for any installs of WordPress.ORG software. We provide support only for free hosted WordPress.COM blogs being hosted right here on this multiuser blogging platform. and have different log-ins and run different versions of themes with same names. If you don’t have a username account at WordPress.ORG click and register one on the top right hand corner of the page that opens, so you can post to the support forums there and receive advice from WordPress.ORG bloggers.



    Yes, I am getting exactly the same. I am also frustrated.

    Really? Can you make it any more confusing?
