Odd

These past couple of days I’ve been getting some odd “likes” on my blog. People with handles containing lots of random letters and numbers similar to “xton1235.ocwdx.com” and “strsex9542.swrdp.com.” Note, I didn’t use actual links, lest I trigger some response.

These “likers” never comment on my posts, so I don’t have an opportunity to mark them as spam, but they seem to follow even my comments on other posts, “liking” things I like and the comments I make.

Are any of my blogging friends seeing similar occurrences? I feel like something isn’t right with this sudden onslaught (there are at least ten different odd handles clicking the like button on my posts) am I being paranoid or should I be concerned?

Peace, people!

  1. Mine as well. None of them became a “follower” or I would have removed them. Even though their profile photo looked like regular folks, I did not trust them to be legit and I did not click on theirs for concern of starting something technical and they would get access to my files somehow. How is that for paranoia?

  2. I have them too and I reported them to the wordpress forum. They are spam, all from the same spammers. They’ve blocked any new ones from that source, but so far they don’t have a way to take them off. I hope they will soon. For now I’ve stopped displaying comment likes.
