Every morning, I check my space for comment spam. Two or three mornings out of each seven I spend an hour deleting spam out of my Windows Live Space blog comments. I just listen to some nice music and get into the robotic zone of deleting spam.
Most of the spam we all get is for batteries. I never understood why batteries would be the most spammed product here in Windows Live Spaces….until today…
My hubby and I can’t find the battery charger for our digital camera. So, I’ve been shopping online for a replacement.
What a racket! The part to charge the battery is so dang expensive! The battery is equally expensive. Selling batteries and battery accessories is certainly a money maker…
So, I finally understand the spammers..
Edited to add:
This is the next morning. (after deleting another batch of spam) My hubby found the charger. Whew! Good thing. That doohickey is expensive!
Please give your thoughts on comment spam in my thread in the Windows Live Solution Center:
An admin suggested that I report spammers. Funny. Our Abuse Reports are never seen by human eyes. Talk about an exercise in futility. Reporting them is not the problem.
We still need to report them, though. But, it would be nice if somebody read the reports and closed the accounts. I’ve been spammed by the same battery spammer two days in a row.
Please add your spam rants to the thread linked above so Windows Live Administrators will see how big the problem is.
