Comment spam at Persona...

Well well what have we here? SPAMMER ALERT!!!

MaeLou you or someone might like to keep an eye on this person...or maybe just throw them out the door.

I hate spam...of any kind. Don't like the food kind and definitely don't like the online kind.

I used to get stuff like this as messages at facebook, but it's been quite some time since it last happened...and I surely didn't expect it here.

I'm sure many others her likely got this same comment on their profiles...or maybe not...maybe I am just special lol

Oh well, maybe I should drop them an email...and tell them exactly what I think of them. emoticon :angry:

But then they'd have my email address, and i don't want that happening.

Thank you for posting this, I got one too and as far as I can see, I can't remove it. Hopefully MaeLou or someone will look into this.

Yep, I got it too, and I think the same thing. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a way to flag comments or maybe users.

Carmelanirel SoundNFury Yeah I figure they probably tried to get everyone they could. I couldn't find a way to delete or report it either

I got it too, I figure once the admins hear about it it should go away.

I have that on my profile as well. I noticed it early today. It's annoying that we can't delete the comments. Their account is still pending as well. I think that commenting anywhere on the site should be withheld until their account is approved.

wow that is bold and scary..I trust she will be removed? Thank you for reporting and sharing

Right now, we have it set up that pending members can still comment (but not post). I just denied their "application" so anything they posted anywhere should be gone :) They just "applied" this afternoon.

Got one too. I sent a copy to the admins. I hope we'll see the last of her/him soon.

I haven't got any spam comments so far, thank goodness. Well, I think since there's now a like button for comments, admin should also put a flag link for spammers like that one.

I have not had a comment like this on any of my posts, but they definitely need to be booted from Persona Paper.

Spam will be the end of us all and the end of the site as well. I'm glad that MaeLou did something about this already. The 'application that we have before accepting new members will greatly help everyone in keeping spam away from the site.

I kind of feel left out as I don't think I got one. Just kidding. When I was active at Authonomy (an online writers' critique group) these were a common occurrence.

This issue should be addressed... users in the PENDING group will no longer be allowed to comment or write on anyone's profile.

thanks for letting us know, i haven't seen this comment yet, hope that Persona Paper will get rid of this person

Yes, please let's nip this in the bud before it gets out of hand.

On a side note, I am not a big fan of the food spam either. I mean, I ate it on visits to my great grandmother, who had spam, tomato soup and / or syrupy potatoes on the ready for our arrival each visit.

Whoah. Never saw spam comments here and actually thought there weren't any. That's bad (that there are spam comments). Hope they get that addressed soon. Hate spam too but only the online kind emoticon :smile:

Madcanman wrote on January 20, 2015, 5:47 AM

Headed over to my profile page right now to see if I got that as well. And for what it's worth, even though I'm eating healthier now than ever before and will likely never eat it again, I like spam. Really. Especially fried in a pan, topped with ooey, gooey cheese and served with mustard. Mmmm...

livingnow wrote on January 20, 2015, 6:32 AM

I've got too this spam comment and I saw many other members got too. I hope this spammer will be removed.

Carmelanirel wrote on January 21, 2015, 6:54 AM

TheLambLiesDown I see they have removed the comment, don't know when, but I am glad it is gone

Golumolu wrote on January 26, 2015, 1:43 PM

Hmm.. This setting made me lose a very beautiful comment I had written to MaeLou .... but I have no grievances :) Anything which helps community is good for me too!

They won't last long, if they're not gone already. They're pretty good around here getting rid of riff raff.

I have not received spam comments , thank goodness and I hope I never receive it.
