ANONYMOUS, YOU ARE VERY ANNOYING!

All these advertisements on  Cheap Via-gra.. online pharmacy V-Gra and whatever Wai-Goh you want to promote....  PLEASE ADVERTISE SOMEWHERE ELSE AND GET OFF MY BLOG!

If not for someone who made me aware of these comments in my old posts, these Anonymous  on these V drugs are still having their "hey-day" and free advertisement in my blog posts.

Does anyone of you have these spam comments each day?  All the drugs concerning this V-graare "infesting" my old posts and I was not aware of these comments till recently.  To avoid them from coming in, I clicked my settings to Only Registered users can comment ... but the setback is that, some of my friends who have no account, were not able to comment in my blog posts.

So... may I ask what is the best way to solve and "kick out" these Adnonymous advertising V-gra in my posts?  Each day I have to go to the Comments page to delete and there are more than ten each time.  Really irritating....

I do not want to moderate my comments, that is extra work for me too...

What should I do?  Any suggestions?

Comments

  1. Guess at the meantime you need to set it to 'only registered users only'. After some time, you may get back to your normal setting.

  2. I did not receive such comments, but I did receive spams on something else, which is also very annoying!

    Yea, can do like what wenn said, for the time being.

  3. wenn: does that work? I have tried for a few days only.. and they came back after I click everyone ...


    hayley: i didnt know till i check the dashboard cos they post on the older posts..not the current ones..

  4. I put the setting to moderation after 2 days. So your friend can comment on your new post and all the comments on your old post will go into moderation. That way it will not be publish without your consent and you can decide to publish it or not. I do received some SPAM comments from time to time.

  5. these spams usually post comments on older posts.. I've got them every week too, my blog not as popular as yours so lesser.. what I do, and I find quite useful..
    1) require moderation for posts older than 14 days
    2) enable automatic spam detection, I guess it's enabled by default
    3) I open to all to comment, no moderation, no word verification - this is to simplify commenting by real readers

    ps: no point scolding them because they are programmed written to post spams on random blogs only, they are not human comments.. :p

  6. gertrude: I wonder whether blogger has this feature.. moderation after two days? let me check...

  7. well, i also facing everyday, can print screen let you see already got 10,000 in my deleted mail~ LOL~
    the only way to clear it was set your comment into typing moderation in order to post. but i had disable it and therefore i still can't find way to delete it too~ if you found one~ tell me too~ =D

  8. happened to me b4. and 'they' struck again now. what i did b4 was just remove it to spam folder then report spam. after that no more disturb.

  9. Change your settings to not allow anonymous comments. (You can also request that comments on posts older than five days or so need approval first.) That's how mine is set up and I only get a couple spam comments a year.

  10. Oh how iccky!!! I have never seen any here, but I do not read your other comments, I just post my own and leave. I have not had any of these, and the only thing I could think is comment moderation. But everyone hates that and almost no one uses it anymore. Blogger is supposed to have a good spam filter. I think there is a way you can actually go into blogger and complain and report them.

  11. I saw this in a friend's blog when I clicked to check out an old post - all the spam, lots!!! Dunno if he is aware of it or not. Hopefully, Akismet has managed to block all of mine...

  12. me too.. I turned moderation on after a 'old' post, so it will appear in the dashboard when I go blogger to do cleaning. And I suggest, for those who really want to comment, should just get a google account (which is super useful if got one).

  13. Guess its part and parcel of life if you love roses gotta bear with the thorns.

  14. mrlonely: only registered users can comment now.. sigh..


    ayu: it works like that? thanks.. let me try...


    alex: can we request that way too? let me check it out.. thanks!


    ginny: yes, any anonymous comments, they should transfer it to spam...


    stp: these annoying comments only spam the older posts, that is the problem.. i can only see them when i go to my dashboard and click comments... all in old posts mostly... didnt know i was advertising for Vgra all these while..

  15. cynthia: not everyone has a blog or email account.. anyway, now i have click to only registered users can comment for now..


    bananaz: you made it sound so nice... cannot have two sides of the coins, right? but it is a chore to delete more than 50 spams per day...

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yes Claire follow sk advice. mine one is more than 2 days then moderate the comments.


    this spam is with link. dangerous leh. can cause your blog to b suspended coz its link your blog with spamming blog

  17. kathy: oh gosh.. now i have set it to only registered users... hope they wont suspend my blog..

  18. I get this DAILY. Almost every 5 or so hours. On my blog, I have made posting as Anonymous an option and I don't even have CAPTCHA activated so that's probably why. You can add CAPTCHA or limit the ways to comment (just like how it is now). That should help. These are all SEO contractors. I would know, I've done this as part of my work before. And we never just create accounts on sites just for the sake of commenting. We only went for being able to post anonymous or adding a name and url. It can be such a black hat SEO method.

  19. Oh yes, I know what you mean. It's very frustrating. I use Akismet to sieve them out before they appear on my blog. Sometimes a few hundreds a day! So far so good. On that sometimes blogger friend's comment also went into my spam box. Seldom happen though.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
