Spam is doing the Rounds...

I've been so busy this past week that I haven't had time to check into my blog until today.

Unfortunately some potentially offensive spam was able to be posted on the comments on one of my more recent October posts. :(

If anyone was offended, please accept my apologies...

Sadly the spammers found a way around Blogger's system for detecting spam postings, so they appeared in the visible comments.

It does mean I'll be altering my settings on past posts to avoid any more incidents like this; so if you do comment on an older post I'll review them and then be able to confirm it's okay and allow it to be published.

I don't want to have to review every comment first, so I hope Blogger will quickly pick up these spammers posts.



An evening view...

  1. What a pain Carol! Ugh, honestly we can do without it can't we?
    I like that evening view. Very calming.
    Have a good week, hope you get all that you want done. :-)

    1. Thanks, Maria. I have a few late evening by water photos, and they are very calming when I've had a stressful day.

      I'm sure there's someone who spends their life coming up with schemes to get around systems. :)

  2. I regularly get spam comments on old blog posts - sometimes ones which are several years old. I have no idea why pwople bother to do that.

    1. Yes, it's always the way. I assume they hope for stray successes, and that they won't be picked up, Patsy.
