    I got a strange problem... Someone spam my blog with not existing sites.
    The comments are from this type:

    Code:
    Author : otnxpoxhlsq (IP: 193.205.145.119 , natdecollato.unitus.it)
    E-mail : tpnpii@afquos.com
    URL    : http://oelorovfpsoy.com/
    Whois  : http://ws.arin.net/cgi-bin/whois.pl?queryinput=193.205.145.119
    Comment: 
    lrGO0z  <a href="http://wfzjniurkmks.com/" rel="nofollow">wfzjniurkmks</a>, [url=http://seacbealybmn.com/]seacbealybmn[/url], [link=http://jxjekasaduzl.com/]jxjekasaduzl[/link], [url]http://xbqmquovubel.com/[/url]
    It is normal.. I understand that they spam but why they do it?
    What they get?
    I got a 30-50 comments a day i just dont know. And my comments are set to moderate. So the comments will be not shown in the blog

    Yeah I'd go for an IP ban, but if your site link is in a spamming program database then goodluck. :D

    Well I've had the same problem with a normal blog, not Autoblog and don't use PR Storm etc.

    Perhaps you can't put everything down to karma!!!???

    Yes that is the problem.. Very strange... I think someone from competition wants my
    blog to link to non-existent sites to get bad rep in google... Just i am not sure and
    wants to know why they do it..

    They only want to link your site to bad neighborhood.

    Home Page:
    It may seem to make no sense, but they are building a database of instant comment approval pages.

    So they spam 100k links to sjhbfsjlfds.com then instantly check if it was approved, if yes that blog gets added to the short list of good targets and that blog will get totally owned with real links.

    Nobody is trying to get you banned mate. Just open your comments.php and change the default text on the comment inputs, plus remove the powered by Wordpress in the footer.
