Anyone else having weird things going on? Yesterday I had two comments in spam. Today I have 169! I don’t even know what to think!
Last week my blog was hacked. I had to delete it and start a new one that’s pretty strange !

Oh, no, I hope that’s not it!
I doubt it. When I was having so problems. I emailed the spam catchers at askimet.com and they were very helpful.
How do I find you now?
I’m Here :
Sorry to hear that! What’s your new blog URL?

Thanks Rob! https://houseofheartweb.wordpress.com/
That’s definitely weird. I have had more spam notifications lately, but nowhere near that many. 😳
I don’t usually check, because Word Press is so good at identifying these, but I just looked, and I only have the customary number of spam comments — a few per day. You have a very busy blog, though. 🙂
I’ve never had more than a few at a time before! Crazy…
Last week my blog was hacked as well but the people at WordPress helped me out and with a simple push of a button the unwanted comments disappeared.
I will contact them, thank you!
I’ve been seeing long time followers comments in trash. So weird😟
This reminds me to check my spam contents.
I’m glad! 🙂
I had the same Spam problem last week. I just have to go through it all the time now… it seems to have quieted down a bit though.
I just emptied spam as all were truly spam and it seems to be okay. Nothing today. Crazy, right?
Wow! That’s a lot. I had 7 today… 3 yesterday. This is about what I seem to get. Although sometimes I forget to check for a few days… but I still don’t think I’ve ever seem more than 15 or 20 even after a week-ish. Maybe some spam robot locked on to your site for the day. I’m totally making that up… I don’t know if such a thing exists. 😀
Yeah, weird. I went through each page and every single one had misspelled words, inane comments, truly spam! So far today, nothing…
Well, I’m glad it hasn’t continued!
That happened to me last week! From about 10 am to 1pm, I had over 200 spam comments. It was insane! Thankfully nothing out of the ordinary since.
Oh, good, I’m glad nothing else. Must be like those telemarketer phone calls!
I’ve had more than usual, but not that many! Maybe you’ve become the next hot thing for the spammer community? No — let’s not think about that. Let’s just say you’re popular! 😉
I haven’t had that many in one sweep but the ones I do get seem to be more racy than usual.
Yes, I’ve been experiencing similar problems too. Sometimes I find that my newly published post doesn’t have any comments, only to find so many comments stuck in the spam folder (even the ones from some of my regular visitors!) But most of it is spam. On some days, some particular posts keep getting spam comments! The one thing that I’ve learned is that you’ve to keep an eye on the spam folder – always! Before the comments accumulate to a huge number!
Yes, I need to check everyday!
Yes Rob’s comments have been in my trash the last few days, along with others. And I have been getting a lot more Spam than I used to. I tried entering the spammers key words and urls in under the general settings section but that didn’t help. So now I’ve been clicking the x next to the url and removing it and that seems to be helping some. Wow 169 that’s ridiculous!!! I check and empty mine daily. I wonder what’s going on.
