HELP!

Dear blog homies,

Why am I suddenly getting so many comments from random people around the world? Most of the time it's just a bunch of Chinese characters left on 5, 6, or 7 of my posts. I'm pretty sure these aren't real people with real blogs so I'm slightly worried about "security" issues on my blog. I don't want to go private so I was just wondering if anyone else has had this problem and could offer any suggestions.

Thanks blogging peeps!

Celia, it's mal.
I had a friend that had the same thing, she found a way to block those blogs... scary. Good luck!

Not sure but we'd had the same ting. I really wish I knew how to type in Chinese characters though just to freak you out.

I'm surprised. If you have the word verification that should stop it... did you just put the word verification on? or was it always there?

It's always been there. So yeah, I'm kind of stumped.

I'd say activate comment moderation- best thing to do. Don't bother much. It'll stop coming in a while. Hope this helps :)

I get comments in Chinese on my blog too. I did the translation thing and they don't make any sense?

I heard on the news that if you have a twitter account, it is adding weird comments on peoples blogs, fb accounts, etc... Most of them are for weight loss sites and when you click on them you get a virus. It could be related

I have also had some random comments, but have been too lazy to switch to private. No Chinese characters though. I don't know either! Good luck

Nah...don't be too worried about it. Here's the deal. It is most likely SPAM sites they are posting. You should put up word verification. Also turn on "comment moderation", so you can select which comments should be posted and which should be deleted from your blog. Just don't click on any of those links in those spam comments or you could catch a really bad virus. Good luck! Nice blog by the way.

The best way is to moderate your comment page. That way, you'll be notified via email of all incoming comments. I had a similar problem in the past but it was more of a personal bullying type (I eventually caught the cyberbully).

Happy bday to your boy. Cute!
