    If I do a whois lookup on the domain it doesnt actually exist.. so whats the deal here? is this a xrummer blast? and if so what benefit is there from spamming a non existent domain name?

    xRumer is for forums, not for wordpress blogs. just use a plugin like akismet or mollom to get rid of em.

    xrumer can be used for blogs as well but this one most likely is from prstorm i think

    Ok thanks, i've installed akismet and it seems to be doing the job, was just curious really as to why someone was spamming a non existent domain name. thanks again

    I noticed the same type of spamming on my blog. I was wondering the same thing since it is just a bunch of jumbled letters. They might be testing out some software to see if it works first.

    I got a whole bunch of these on my wordpress blogs. SOme had as many as 50 comments. So I deleted the comments and installed Akismet. Xrumer owners struggle to get past Akisment because it's so good.

    Still wonder what the use of the random mumble-jumble is
