Foodie Spam

I have noticed on several of my Food Monday posts that I am getting spam comments that look legitimate!  The always follow a comment and use that Commenter’s name, the wording of the their comment with a few more added!

If they are decent and upright why steal another persons name and comment?

Who are they?  all free recipes (dot) net.

Anyone else had this occur?

    I would delete them, Grannymar. No need to “clog up” your comments with ones that are spam.

    Re your comment: the flowers come from wholesalers, weddings, shops that can’t sell them because they are from the previous week, large parties and other events. They are too old to be sold, but not so old that someone can’t get a few days enjoyment from them.

    I will try to take photos showing the room before, during and after – although as we finish one, we take it to the packing table and they get put in boxes for delivery, so it would be impossible to get photos of all our output. The web-site says that almost 60,000 arrangements have been delivered in 4 years

    judy – I do spam those so called comments.

    I think the Flower Shuttle is a wonderful idea and it has given me an idea for a blog post!

    I get lots of them but they are all caught by akismet. I don’t write recipe posts, but on many others, I get them and I simply delete them. I believe that these spammers are people looking to increase link traffic so that they can get higher rates for ads on their blogs.

    Ramana – I wondered if other Foodie blogs were troubled in the same way. I have no wish to increase the funding for their blog.

    Nancy – I think that Steph has run away with her visitors! 🙄 We better send out a search party.

    Rhyelysgranny – It was your comment that was abused on Monday. It is done to make it look like a double comment.
