What is Web Spam? How do I deal with this?
Granted, this does not plague my system but it has become a curio.
About Once a month I get two almost identical new comments in my web site with the same time/date stamp The only difference is the address. One is sent to my present e-mail address, the other is sent to a precious one. I don’t know if they differ from each other month-to-month but I am now saving them to compare.
Since I get all kinds of confused perusing the configuration menus trying to check the settings, I have given up looking. It may be possible that both e-mail addresses are in there somewhere. Send me some paths and I will check it out.
This last set caught my eye because the message is asking “Is it alright to put a portion of this on my site if perhaps I submit a reference point to this web-site?”. This time I checked the IP address and found it to be from somewhere on the east coast of China and the author is “Escort Shanghai.
I used to, but to my knowledge no longer have, comment blocks in my site. There should be no way someone can come into the site and leave a message. I may have missed one but I have checked.
My registration is now restricted manual acceptance and then only if the user has an e-mail address from the university. All 40 members are from this term and all previous members have been deleted.
The note from WordPress suggests that I Please Moderate:”Homework:” and that there is “A new comment on the post Homework”. but don’t see how they are linked to that post?
How did this message get into my system?
