That is a lot of spam.

Spammers often auto-search by finding keywords so perhaps you're inadvertently using too many of the keywords they like in your drabbles? A little like how we used to get all those spammers selling kitchens here because of the Kaffee und Kuchen forum name.

They also probably like the fact that your account is so active and that you get a lot of comments and respond to them.

Not sure what to suggest unfortunately

I've had a couple today. They're registering under ordinary names - James, Charles, Rebecca, etc - which makes them much harder to spot than when they register under a random jumble of letters. I haven't got any answers either!

How do spammers know?!? I've just opened my laptop for the first time since Friday and discovered they decided to celebrate my birthday yesterday by posting 19 spam messages on Vol 7 of ND!! :shock: :banghead: Plus sundry others elsewhere.

Normally I'd be able to delete them, but that means signing on, which we can't do right now.

I think they were just busy yesterday! I'd had no spam e-mails for several days and was hoping they'd decided to leave me alone, but I had 3 yesterday. None today, touch wood! Maybe they just like Saturdays :lol: .

ETA - tempted fate there. Just had another one. Boo!
