Porn spam

Spammer

Somehow this website has found itself on some sort of list or somewhere that spammers look to see for websites that they can spam with their porn links.

It seems that almost every time I publish a post someone comes along and puts porn spam in a comment to that post.

I’m not completely stupid, I do have comment moderation on so the only place it goes is into the moderation queue which morning I check and each morning I just delete all their spam, it’s a waste of their time and a complete waste of my time.

I guess it must be some sort of bot that’s doing it because if it was being done by a real person then a quick look at my site would show that there is no porn spam on it already therefore I must be doing something to control it and it’s a waste of their time posting it.

The moderation queue in WordPress has a light box where I can preview the link that they’re actually posting without visiting it and I do often look at it just to check out and see what it is they’re trying to get my readers or myself to look at and I must admit it’s not even good porn, I mean it is really mild porn compared to the main stream sites like pornhub.

Given that it’s not really proper hardcore stuff and that I’ve never ever clicked on a link to check it I’m pretty sure the spam isn’t about pornography it’s just using pornography as a tag to get people to visit and then there’s some sort of clickbait or keystroke capture or something else on these sites that is scamming people for some reason.

They’re after something else it’s not just the pornography that they want to promote they’re after passwords or bank details or something else it has to be because honestly nobody is really going to want to watch this tame stuff.
