BLOGGING THOUGHTS

You May Be a Spammer if….

8 Comments 1088 views

You leave Facebook posts on my wall asking to check out your awesome website.
You use something other than your name in the name field of a comment form.
Your Twitter stream has no @ replies.
You send out daily messages to your Facebook fans.
You auto DM me after I followed you.
You send a pitch email that doesn’t address me by name.

What am I missing guys? Help me out. The spam is killing me right now and I need a good vent session!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Your DM has nothing more than a link that I should “check out”

    You have NO FOLLOWERS!

    I don’t know how many “Clearly I’m ahead at life” tweets I’ve received over the last few weeks but those are pretty lame.
    The Auto DM’s are out of control.
    Don’t forget forum spam!
    My favorite lately has been the influx of messages from “Max Gentleman.” I’m not sure what they’re selling but it doesn’t seem to be aimed at “gentleman” at all ;)

    Also, I like my spam with rice!

    If you have any references (but not limited) to:

    * Viagra
    * Enlargement of penis, either directly or alluded to by mentioning a member of a non-mentioned club or organization or other ways
    * Canadian Pharmacies

    Also as I recently learned.. if you don’t have an address after each mail sent out. This is literally a violation of the CAN-SPAM act. just a FYI.

    Your one-sentence comment misspells at least one simple word in a bizarre way. Why do spam comments do that?

    I can’t say I’ve specifically had these issues, but I get way more spam comments on my blog than legitimate ones. I really wonder if other bloggers experiences this daily ritual of cleaning out the spam comment email notifications, or if I’m just ignoring some blog function to eliminate that stuff.

    @NewLeafEats Are you in Wordpress? Akismet plugin catches most of mine but I still have to delete a few every day.
