"After a short lull, the spammers are back again … and they seem to have chosen yesterday's blog entry to be the target of their spamming!

For once, it does not seem to be Russian-based IP addresses that are the source of the jump in traffic on my blog; it is Indonesia!…"

You fry up a slab of SPAM and cover it with some good Chow-Chow on a sandwich…. and it is as close to heaven as you will get, here on earth.

Could be from anywhere, and they're only pretending to be from Indonesia.

They have bacon flavored Spam as well as Jalapeno flavored. Agree with skipper john fried up with cheese for me & BBQ sauce. 🍔

Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam,…Lovely Spam…


It can't be from Indonesia, Spam is Pork.

I know we're not supposed to like Putin, but the look on his face in that video when one of his staffers suggested selling pork to Indonesia was simply priceless.

I am now dealing with an average of thirty spam comments per day.

The content is sometimes of a borderline obscene nature, and despite making comments require the person making it have a Google account and to tick the ‘I am not a robot' option, they are still getting through thick and fast!

Is there a way to require commenters to sign up on your site, so that you can approve/monitor them?

That might help.

I guess you could always just turn off comments too.

Hope they are at least improving your clicks, and that you get some money from that.

Yes, that would be funny if they started clicking pop-up ads instead (or be tricked/made to… ;-)

Sorry von … sometimes I get "blood simple" and all Bleeped text breaks loose ! 😵😈

I have comment moderation and ‘I am not a robot' verification in place. this stops the spam getting onto my blog, but it doesn't stop them trying.

S'OK Legion,

Sorry - only verified members can post on the forums.
