Bloggers: If you get a comment that says "good job :)" it's smutty spam

Just thought I'd let you know that if you get a comment on your blog that says "good job :)" it's smutty spam--just in case it goes under your radar. I'd hate to have to moderate comments. BAD spammers!

ETA: I guess I should explain this better: I had two. They work like this. If you get your comments sent to your email, it will look like this:

Ina (or Paul or...) said

good job :)

for some reason the name (Ina or Paul) is not a link the way other commenter's names are when they're in your email, but when you get to your blog (assuming you check there too which can be time consuming) the name IS a link--to a sleezy page! (I'm no censor, but I sure don't want that on my blog --I don't even like commercial spam) Ok, rant over. ;0)


May your comment sections be smut & spam-free! :0)

I read somewhere in blogland that a pop up comments window stops spammers. I have one, not received any spam, but can't vouch for it.

Call me stupid but I don't understand how saying 2 words is spam. I may be 54 but didn't think I was that clueless. Am I missing something? LOL must be getting older faster than I realized.

Go away bad people :)

Well that stinks! How nasty! I always thought writing Good Job was a compliment I will have to watch my wording! Don't these spammers have a life? Or do they just like to hurt people, that REALLY bothers me.
