    This is a duplicate post, because wordpress forum seems to have disabled my last post.

    Perhaps it is because I pasted in an excerpt of a strange junky email I got today from one of my sites, http://remotecontroldigital.com/.

    The email was trying to sell insurance or something, seemed to be written by a program. Also recently, there seems to have been some malware trying to add users and comments. Has anyone seen this? Is it dangerous?

    I just removed any direct reference to my email adress es on the site, by the way, in case that was the issue.

    do you have akismet on your site? Emails like that can be quite common, and a pain in the ass if you don't have proper spam filtering
