Suddenly Lots of Spam in Comments Moderation Queue and Incoming Links
I noticed a couple of spams getting through Akismet today, so I marked them as spam and deleted them. It won’t take long before Akismet recognizes them.
Link fixed – Friendly reminder that the ‘womenspace’ bit takes the place of the ‘www’. They don’t coexist. If you make a link with both of them, about 30% of the internet would not be able to follow the link.
Second friendly reminder – Some of us deal with 1.3 million spams a day. Consider yourself lucky. :)
The incoming links are provided by Technorati. Staff has no control over them and, considering that it’s Technorati, Technorati don’t either. There’s a large number of threads here covering how many issues they have.
Aren’t the incoming links from Google Blogsearch? I’m noticing virtually zero overlap with my Technorati-reported links. And Google must have switched something about a week or week and a half ago, as things like comments on Gawker that used to be counted suddenly stopped being counted.
Are they from Blogsearch? I must be thinking regular WPMU. drmike needs coffee and cute sexy redheads. Not enough of either. Been long day. Filing complaint with ICANN and dns.be about 103 domains being revolked, including daria.be and tdjc.be as being squater sites. Wonderful day. :(
*groan* I’m so sorry you’re having such a rotten day :(
P.S. newbie question – and a “squatter site” would be?
A squatter site is one that takes advantage of a brief lapse in the registration of a domain name to essentially blackmail the webmaster into paying far above the cost just to get the name back. It seems someone has mistaken Dr Mike for a squatter.
