...when I recognized some spammers names appearing in comments on a recent "guest post" on one of Kiesha Easley's blogs! Tsk! Tsk! Ms. Easley not only put her own blog at risk, but the blogs and/or websites of her readers, who could possibly click themselves into a major computer infection!
I have saved to file the webpage comments as they appear August 30 2012 at 7:29pm New York time - in the event this post makes Kiesha do a little editing (and I hope she does!) - This is what happens when you leave things to automation - from right off the bat, "commenters" got wind that "nobody is home" at WeBlogBetter.com - so, of course, with the door wide open, they barged right in! They zeroed in on THIS POST...
Are You Kidding Me, Kiesha?
Trusting automation not the only thing blogger Kiesha did wrong! Hit up any of the spams on her blog and you are GONE fromWeBlogBetter.com!!! That's a HUGE no-no! Ideally, when a reader clicks on a link in a comment, it should open in a new window and NOT "disconnect" the reader from the website! Viruses and trojans are spread this way, for hevvinsake! And it shocks me - Kiesha Easley is well-known and respected among bloggers!Coincidentally, email from Kiesha's site when a new comment appears bears the originating address information "brandonacox.com" - which is a religious blog. Who knows, maybe the site does email work for other bloggers? Anyway ---
Here's a case of Comments Gone Wild - way off topic on a major website! Take A Look!!!
