Spam Wars.

One of the burdens of being me is that I'm a good person and do not like to break hearts.

But I have just spent several minutes deleting love messages from LJ users, and as the 'delete comment' function now includes the option of reporting their message as spam and banning them, have done this too. It's hard, but it's the only way.

I'm sorry darlings, you need to grieve and move on.

I have also set comments to 'friends only' for a while.

I hope this will also clear out the fans from Japan and the ones who think I want to buy viagra and/or shoes from ??Russia?? No guys, just send cash.

Well damn, I haven't been getting any love messages from strangers - I feel quite bereft.

Don't worry, I'm sure your time will come.


It won't happen overnight...

actually it did happen overnight. A few other folk had mentioned these ones, and today I had a flood of them - sock puppet accounts by the look of them.

All I had to do was say in a comment in my LJ that I hadn't gotten one. Not a few hours later, BAM, faux love message.

Oh god, I just had a spam message to my email that made up for it. Subject line "I expected more, Olga"
I NEED to write the story of Olga and, um, Hector.

no love messages for me but lots of spam -mostly incompetent advertising for random things.

I'm friends only 99.9% of the time. No spam gets through that!

I hadn't had a spam message for a long time even though my posts are mostly public, but a couple of days ago I had one on an account to which I have not posted since 2008, saying that the writer had a crush on me. Awww...

That's another off thing -- these are showing up attached to postings years old. I am purely bewildered at what they're supposed to do.
