I Been Hit!

I been hit by a spammer guy. I checked my email about 5:30 this morning when I got up and there were 8 messages. I went to workout and now it is a little after 8 am. When I clicked my email account what should I find but 23 messages. Excuse me. That just doesn't happen unless I'm off for a few days. Uh oh...they were all comments on my blog entries from someone named ED and they were all in Japanese. I put the language into a translator and it was a Japanese/Chinese or something porn sight. What the hell! So I have gone in to every one and deleted and in the process found another one from the Philippines, only one though. And I have comment moderation on my blog. Not good. Stop it!

Hey! I just wanted to say hi and introduce myself. I'm Carrisa and I live here in Tulsa as well. I found you on Tasha's blog and saw that you were going to be at the Book Pub thing tonight. I am also going to be there. I also noticed you are going to BlogHer, which I am also going to for the third year in a row. I love it. So I figured I'd just say hi and maybe we could be formally introduced this evening.

So I will look forward to seeing you this evening. I'm excited about the book club thing. I'm pretty much excited about anything Mary Beth is involved in.

Are you serious? That totally stinks rotten eggs! On the good side, I'm new here. Hi there, nice to meet you. I am NOT spam, and certainly NOT porn of any stretch of the imagination.

Welcome to the not so exclusive club Jill, sounds like you got as many as I did and it's a pain in the butt deleting them all! Moderation seems to be the only way to go, as much as I hate it!

LOL - my word ver is 'croked'!

Char said...

I must confuse the spammers because the e-mail I set up my account with is no longer a valid address. LOL

sorry you got hit - that's such a pain in the @$$.

Hey, I was just tryin' out my new knowledge of Japanese. Why are you so fired up?!

Actually the only two languages I am semi fluent in are English and Pig Latin.

UGH ... 'Ed' hit me too .. several comments per post ... in all about 40 .. which I deleted one by one .. only word I could understand was: sex

I think some people have way too much time on their hands ...

Flea said...

So far no spamming on my blog. That's gotta suck big time. Doncha feel like you need someone to beat?

Kay said...

Arrrrghhhh! ME TOO! I got hit also. What the heck? Japanese? I thought it was Chinese. Hmmm... It's so weird though because those spam comments were only on about 20 of my posts and they were rather intermittent. I can't figure it out. I had to put the word verification thing back on. Sheesh! Why do people do this? What kind of jollies do they get from it?

I really hope Ed gets a problem with his "you know what"! He deserves it - especially now that I know it's a porn site!

I find it funny that the foreigners use names like "Ed Davis & John Smith" when clearly they are, well....NOT. It's like they have nothing better to do. It's not like they earn MONEY for doing that crazy stuff. It's a high I guess. Sorry that happened to ya!

Debbie said...

12 not so bad; I've had 26 at once before. Thank goodness for comment moderation!

Hmmmmmm......that really doesn't bode well for me, huh? Being that my name is E(lisabeth) D(ean)! But, I swear to you that I know NO Japanese and don't send porn through the web. The raciest I ever got was posting a pic of me holding my new puppy and her forearm was pulling down my sweater to show a little of the left twin. And it WASN'T pretty either!
I haven't (knocking on the end table now) be hit with any spam as yet. Hopefully it won't happen. Sorry it happened to you!
