    Sounds like spam. Just turn on your Akismet plugin and you should be good for a while.

    Thank you thankyou! I thought as much, but was not sure.
    Sorry, but what do you mean 'for a while'?:)
    I would think it's a permanent solution?

    It is permanent, it's just not 100%! Some spam will get through still

    I use akismet, plus:

    Which is great at catching bot-spam

    The combination of these 2 really works well for me!

    By 'a while' I mean for new blogs, Akismet by itself should be fine. At some point, if your site continues to grow and you get an insane amount of comment spam, you may want to supplement with an additional plugin like Cookies for Comments, Bad Behavior, etc.

    For me, I have Akismet on all of my sites and only include Cookies for Comments for my bigger sites.
