Police - Comment Spam

So we all know that from time to time we all get Comment Spam coming in to our blogs and we do fight it off, thanks to CommentLuv we have an extra defence against those trying to leave comments that just aren’t worth the time of day.

But the big question that always crosses and lot of bloggers minds is “Are these commentators spending time to visit blogs and write the comments are they using something that will allow them to just post up a selection from a set of comments that they have listed in some sort of Comment Spam software?”

Well, my dear readers, it seems that they have some software to leave the comments and I’ve had it with the comments coming my way with many using the same collection of quotes etc that may look like normal comments, but they clearly aren’t and only today, I discovered proof of this after someone left a comment with all the comments in one place, even with a “|” in-between the comment phrases!

Comment Spam That You May Have Received!

So I thought I would take it upon myself to bring to light these comments, now I do have to say that this one comment with all the many variations in it was quite big, but I feel it is my duty as a blogger, to let you see that there is some comment spamming software out there, that may even be bypassing the tick box used by Comment Luv, I know, that’s a scary thought isn’t it.

But before I get on to the “big list” I must mention that there is no need to completely panic over this situation, as I mentioned earlier, this form of SPAM was caught and placed in moderation on my website and no doubt it would be caught on yours as well, specially if you have the likes of CommentLuv and Akismet etc. running on your website, but it pays to know what sort of comments are SPAM and what you should look out for, specially if you are new to blogging.

The Big Comment Spam List

OK, here we go, now as I mentioned earlier, this comment was made by some sort of commenting system that had obviously gone wrong and posted all the permutations of the Comment Spam is in one comment, so deep breath everyone, as this is pretty huge and I do apologize for the size, but I DO feel that you should all be aware of this, ok here we go:

I have been browsing online moe than 3 hours today, yet I never found any
interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for

Hello, i think that i saw you visited my website so i came to “return the favor”.I am trying to find things to improve my
site!I suppose its ok to use some of your ideas!!

Over To You Dear Reader

So there you have it, yes I know it’s a big list, but as I said this all came in one comment from some kind of comment spamming software and if you look you will see the dividers that are used to choose the random comments entered on your blog, this particular comment came from “Landreth Online” which is a bizarre name, yes I only accept real names on my website!

Keep an eye out for any of those phrases listed above and if you see them on your blog in the comments section, mark the Comment Spammer as SPAM.

Have you received any of the comment spam above? Did you mistakenly approve them? Please let me know I would love to hear your thoughts. 

Comments

  1. Thanks for the list of spam comments. I will keep a note of these comments listed by you so that i can identify which is the real comment and the spam comments which comes from the comment spam software.


  2. Twitter:
    WDH, are you kidding me? do you really think this kind of software exists or its just a collection of comments which are available for getting pasted in any blog post with some editing as most of the blog’s plugin caught you pasting the comment if you haven’t edited something in it or made it look like a genuine comment. I am still laughing at those spam comments you have shared, it is really tough to find anything fishy in these comments. anyways, thanks for sharing this important information, keep sharing.

    Karen, you’ve got a massive list of spam comments here. I used to get a lot of these kinds of comments on my blog until I took some drastic action that curtailed them. To start with, I noticed I was getting several comments on my blog initially and thought my blog posts were making some positive impacts. I even approved a couple of them. But then I noticed what was strange and I began to analyse the comments individually.

    I noticed the commenters had no gravatar pictures. Besides, they were using keyword-rich text links on some of their comments. To me this was quite unusual; so I decided to screen those comments. It then dawned on me that the comments were tailored to suit all kinds of posts. Since they didn’t mention anything in a particular post, it was obvious they were programmed by intelligent guys who were using bots to post those rubbish.

    I started to clean out my blog. I configured my Intensedebate comment plugin to filter out those things, but so many were still getting in. Manually blacklisting those IPs was not easy either as a lot of them were obviously manipulating IP addresses. I changed to Commentluv but still some were finding their way in.

    I eventually added a few plugins amongst which were Bullet Proof Security (BPS), GASP, SABRE, etc. These helped to reduce the problem and SABRE helped to ensure there were no longer fake registrations for the sake of getting access to comment on my blog. But when I added “Anti Spam” plugin, things changed for the best. The bot comments stopped.

    Anti Spam is a free plugin, but it makes it impossible for bots to deliver spam comments to your blog. What it simply does is to give the bots a simple test and if they fail the test, their comments are automatically deleted. After activating Anti Spam, you don’t need to do any customization; the bots comments are denied without you even knowing. You don’t have anything to clear off. You will only notice your spam comments are gone. You only get few human generated spam comments occasionally and these are just too few to threaten your blog.

    Hi Karen,

    I think this kind of comment is horrible. People who send it are nothing but jerks. I got some comments of this type and all of them are divided with all kind of brackets (even worse than in your example). Whenever I got a comment like this my hair rises and curls.
    It is extremely annoying. I always deny access to those IPs whenever they come to my site. I don’t understand why people send this. How can they believe people will approve such a junk? Are they so dumb? On the one hand we have a spammer, on the other hand we have a huge and annoying comment. It seems a contradiction in terms: spammer and dumb.
    I think there are two explanations: a) those who invented the system know very well what they are doing and there is a reason for that (personally I doubt it is true); b) these are spammers that just begin their career and still don’t know what works and what not.
    Anyway, I don’t think this type of comments will remain with us for a long time. They will try to refine it. I’ sure.
    We need to keep an eye open all the time because spam tactics evolve in time and we surely encounter more and more abnormalities like these.

    Have a wonderful day

  9. Hi Karen,
    Thanks for sharing this information although if I would’ve received some of those comments I would’ve probably approved because they are not your typical spam comments.

    Maybe I should start disapproving any comments that don’t have an image on their gravatar. Since we know that most spammers don’t have a picture on theirs.

    It’s amazing what some people will do for a quick backlink. I’ve been fortunate to not really be bombarded by spam. Not sure if it’s because of Comment Luv or I’ve just been fortunate.

    Thanks for sharing this with us and making us aware to pay better attention to the comments we approve on our sites. Have a great weekend.

      Thanks for commenting Susan, just glad I can share these out and help others, I think the more popular a blog becomes the more we have to fight off the armies of spammers, yes CommentLuv certainly helps against them and I agree about the lack of a gravatar, but some users still don’t know how to set these up, so it’s always best to double check the websites they are linking to ;)

    Spam comments are indeed common issues for bloggers. Thankfully, all of my sites are built over WordPress CMS so I simply have to turn on Akismet and I’ve never seen any spam comment showing up on the dashboard. I’m not sure with other blogging platforms, though. Are you familiar with spam killers other than akismet, Karen?

    I think this could be the thing to which every one in the blogging world is familiar. These type of cheap spams are all over the world. They make us frustrated . Plugins like Akismet are good solution for them. But still some of spam is always there in my blog comment section. Thanks for nice share.

  16. Thanks for pointing out all the spam comments. I just started a blog recently and I noticed a bunch of spam comments that made no sense whatsoever. Most of the comments seem to take snippets from the post and then add a random link to sell stuff.


  17. Twitter:
    I started once to make a “spam allert storage”, after few days of sharing and letting people know those messages are “spam or scam” I start getting messages from Google Chrome saying they found my IP spamming and they did not let me browse with Chrome anymore. I was thinking is just some bug in my cache but after I delete them, issue still appearing, I had to stop the project and move to something else. I delete the website and never shared any spam emails I received.
