I have never put word verification for comments on this blog. Sure, I've gotten spam from time to time, but never enough that it got too much for me to deal with on an individual basis. However, for the last 3 weeks or so I have been dealing with Japanese spam on this single post every single day. I figured it would die down after a while, but no. It's getting very very annoying.
This is what they look like:
I am a bit confused by the spam because yes, it is in Japanese. Um hello? I doubt any of my readers would be able to read this spam? Plus, there are no links to anything in the comment themselves, and the commenter's name is not a link itself. Argh!!! Can I do anything about it apart from word verification? Any other bloggers dealt with this spam?
