    Enough is enough I've just logged in to one of my Blogs and some idiot has spammed me with over 20 comments all from the same IP with the same link text, comment and Email address.

    Damn it they haven't even spun the comments! God knows why Akismet has let them through but I doubt it'll happen again as I marked everyone of them as Spam :)

    Sorry but that's plain stupid. If I get the odd lame comment I just delete it but 20 to the same domain!

    Please use scrapebox sensibly and remove dups to the same domain before posting comment spam.

    Better yet why not manually post relevant comments? I always approve good quality comments even those with a link in as it makes my link profile more natural.

    I mark as spam anyone who posts more than one lame / stupid comment to the same Blog and I'm sure I'm not the only one. No wonder Akismet is blocking so many IP's / domains.

    qwartzy is right, probably half the people in this forum use scrapebox. Even though that does sound like a noob thats doing it lol.

    Some comments are bad some are good some are just plain kiss ass unless you have anything to do with the subject matter on my blog it does not go on there. My blog is business related so I cant let comment about your fake replica watches go on there if if you do try 60 times

    Only half? I'd say 2/3 or more.. Even totally noobs can afford Scrapebox, not a surprise to see complains like this one.

    There is no use complaining here. You can't change others. Your best interest is to upgrade your Akismet and if that does not work complain to Akismet.

    You allow comments on your blog?

    Not on my blogs... comments are closed... the blogs I have are all about making me
    money and not to build backlinks for others.

    Exactly! Just disallow comments? Play with your settings on akismet.

    Why would I disallow comments lol. Comments keep my pages fresh with new content (that I haven't had to add) and keep my link profile natural. I've set the comments so they need approval so it's a win win for me. Free content for me my cache age is 1- 2 days so the bots visit me frequently.

    cyberzilla: I've read that post before and it's a great idea. Snag is the noobs who post that rubbish have no idea about link building so tracking them is a waste of time. However I've used your technique in the past and have had some success with it.

    Spammed your blog with 1000 more comments.

    You are in the wrong forum posting this, this wont change anything, your site is probably 1 out of the 500 million sites getting spammed, nothing to do about it.

    I guess we think differently... I only maintain a couple of blogs and add content daily so I get visited by the bot boys on a pretty regular basis and to me it is easier to just slap out a 500 word article for a blog instead of going through all the "buy viagra" comments.

    Good point. I've more than a couple of Blogs so adding content to them all becomes more of a challenge. I've often thought about closing comments on my Blogs but have been reluctant. Maybe now's the time though :)
