Spammers Target Blogs

Posted on October 26, 2003

First email got spammed and now weblogs are also receiving spam messages. Spammers are posting ads onto the comments area of weblogs. They typically include a comment like "interesting weblog" followed by a link to a porn or Viagra website. So far, there is not much that can be done about the spam other than watch it carefully and frequently delete the spam or allow only members to post comments on the weblog. However, the second option could really limit the number of posts.
