    Hello,

    I've noticed that a certain type of spam towards wordpress blogs has been increasing lately. One of my blogs is also targeted and my spam box is filling with this crap :D

    Can someone please explain what is the purpose of this kind of spam, just to test if the comment is auto accepted?
    Some BHW member creating a massive aa scrapebox list?

    I can see no seo value at all as URL is always something totally random.

    Here's example:
    Code:
    [U]name:
    [/U] 
    rglQUQup (http://93h557f5jvu4azauhi1td6.com)
    
    [U]comment:[/U]
    
    rglQUQup?
    ??

    its a way of collecting auto approve blogs, they spam a list of blog first then verify if that link or random code are approved

    yes, you are right. your blog was tested if it's comment need moderation or not. and, for instance, I had uploaded earlier a list of more than 26k of such blogs so, close the no moderation access to you comments and you shall be fine.

    Okay, my guess was right. Thank you all for confirmation. :)
