    Your biography web site will need to retain the photos in the nude type and specific particular person information and facts. It needs to be accessible to ones also in case you are only a guests to your web site. This way, it is possible to create if your live sex cams web site may offer the most beneficial nude designs in your case."

    Can someone tell me what's up?
    What is this???

    The email kind of explains it, doesn't it?

    It was a spam comment looking for a backlink.

    Check your comments in your dashboard, it will be there I'm sure, awaiting moderation.

    Hehe, I wouldn't call it an attack... Just another spam comment hoping to get link from your website. I'd install some good spam-protection plugin on your website if I were you. Black hatters are all about spamming first and fighting the spam thereafter :)

    Akismet plugin gets rid of such comments .. or you can try some other, more strict software to stop these spammers in their track. Akismet is free to use on personal blogs. Just install and go to their site nd they'll ask you to sign up before you get the key.
    Hope this helps.

    Just and automated comment.. You need to adjust comment settings where in it wont ask for any comment.. It would also be good that if you can enable comment without giving a backlink while a slight modification is also possible in the comment.
