Not in Russian Anymore
I was looking through my wordpress admin page and I noticed more than 1,000 spam responses in the comments section. By default I don’t post any of these to my site, but just for fun I looked through some of the stuff that people are trying to get on my site. About half of the comments were in, and I’m just kind of guessing here because there were a bunch of backwards Rs and other symbols I didn’t recognize, Russian or some similar language. If these spammers are so smart, can’t they figure out only to spam sites that at least use the same character set?
While I was messing around with my website setup, I thought I would give the “automagically post this to my facebook page” plugin another shot. I tried a few months ago but wasn’t able to get it to work. Here goes attempt number 2. Engage!
