It seems that those guest comments are plaguing people's comics... I wonder how these can be stopped? They are quite bothersome.

I've recieved several Guest comment spam today on random old comic pages, most of them talking about blogs, hacks and one of the newest ones is in a language I don't understand at all.
I deleted most of them already but here's few:
http://transfusions.smackjeeves.com/com ... 2-page-97/
http://transfusions.smackjeeves.com/com ... 751/extra/

edit: okay I've gotten like 20 of these comments today.... :(

Just as the above poster - I've received several Guest comment spam today on random comic pages. I've deleted and blocked 6 or 7 but they just keep coming. Here's the link, if that helps:

I woke up to some crazy spam!
It seems to be mostly on the later pages, but it's pretty scattered throughout.

Bot Spamming a guest

Postby AlkseeyaKC » July 20th, 2013, 9:05 pm

I'm not sure where to talk about this issues? But my comic got spammed buy a bot as a (guest). It left one comment per page under different names. You can get an over view of them on my comic profile: http://www.smackjeeves.com/comicprofile.php?id=63747
.... Apparently its still going though and commenting on page of my comic.

For now I'm going to disable the Guest comments, so I'm not getting like hundreds of e-mail from this.

I really want comments from people who are not apart of SJ to comment, I have tabbed into one of those comment plug in kind of things, and they were really annoying an people didn't seem to want to use them as much, Though if there is nothing that can be done about it then I may have to dab into that again.
If that's the case can anyone recommend me one of those? I forget where to get them. >_<;

I'll leave the bot messages there till I hear from you guys, otherwise I want to delete them later. >_<

Wow, reading through this thread it seems like I'm not the only one with this issue lately. :(

Starting yesterday morning I have been getting spam after spam comment on my comic. I have deleted most of them but I kept one on this page (bottom) for reference: http://staticskies.smackjeeves.com/comi ... 1/page-35/

They are all from guests with different names spouting gibberish about games/anime/blogs etc. Between yesterday and today I probably received about 50 spam messages.

For the time being I have turned off the guest comment feature, which is unfortunate for me because I know I have a few guest readers who like to comment. :(

I hope this can somehow be resolved. Thank you.

Alright, took care of most of the spam. Couldn't get it all though without also affecting a bunch of legitimate comments.
