The last day or so I’ve had many notifications of someone systematically ‘liking’ old comments I’ve made on other blogs. It reminded me of this post, only this time so far the comment likes are not on my own blog but others. It’s annoying but I guess there’s nothing that can be done about it. I wish WordPress would make a Spam filter on ‘comment likes’ like they do with ‘comments.’ Maybe you all are experiencing this too? ~ sigh ~
Most of you won’t need to read this post as it applies only to those who regularly comment on my blog. I woke this morning to notifications of a spammer ‘liking’ comments on my recent posts. The name starts with ‘id’ and is followed by randomly generated letters. I assume they wish to trick you into visiting their site. I did not and I wanted to spare you as well. I reported the matter to WordPress and they were already aware of the issue and working on blocking this activity. Their workaround for now is to disable comment likes which I have done. (You’ll find a check box that controls this under Sharing Options.)
