I got a few of them awhile back. Reported the user as a spammer.. Also were a few LJ accounts advertising random sites (an alternate facebook-like site but aimed at Australians). Reported that too. Bit odd.

I'm getting a lot of spammy comments as well, and I reported the first few as spam- and now, all the spam I'm getting are as anonymous comments. So...can't do much other than delete them. ARGH. I don't want to go to friends-only but this is pissing me off. >:[

Pretty sure you can make it so only registered users can post comments.. That might help?

Oh, really? If you- or anyone reading this!- knows how to enable that option, please let me know! *iz clueless*

Okay, Miss Mer, I did this, thanks btw, and I still got spammed. Any other suggestions?
Meredithxfirefly9x on March 8th, 2011 01:13 pm (UTC)
Np.. Still spammed? Not sure then. That's all I had to do to stop from getting spammed myself.. and the reporting of spammers.

I guess you could send a msg to livejournal.. like through the feedback/contact us section? But yeah. Not sure that'd be much help. Maybe you could ask what other options there are.

Did you also know that if you type ww instead of www when entering the livejournal address you get the site in russian? I've never tried it intentionally, but the fre times I made the typo I got it in russian...

I feel like ever since LJ got sold from that super awesome tech team in San Fran that it's been going down hill... *sigh*

I'm getting a bunch of them too. It's really annoying especially when I think I've got a comment from someone and it's just stupid spam :(

Same here. Now it's spam from 'registered' users. I am disappoint in you LJ.
