The spam comments, have no icons or avatars. Are there real people? Just wondering, thank you. The blog I need help with is drawanime.wordpress.com.

January 21, 2011 at 9:19 pm #559438 macmanxStaff You’re welcome! Yeah, duplicate comments are quite common when dealing with spam.

The spam consists of pgrases from my own comments made in response to my commenters on blog posts, and phrases from my commenters comments which is simply copied and pasted and submitted as comments.
