Spam Reaches Deeper

Ed Cone addressed comment spam on his site last week. I've been getting a ton of it on my Word Press blogs. Even the spam filter program can't stop it all. Well, to clarify, it does push into a "moderate" category, so at least it doesn't hit the public view. It hasn't happened yet in Blogger.

Facebook has been hit hard by spam in the last few weeks with phony Wall messages being sent out in the name of some person to others on their friend list. Usually the message points the reader to a not very nice web site.

And today I got comment spammed for the first time on my Flickr site. Under a lovely picture of a sweet child was this comment. And by the way, cristian202005 is an empty account - phony - I looked it up. I don't know how they stop individuals or companies from creating phony accounts and then posting comments like this. Maybe they should purge all accounts that have no pictures.
