Yikes!

I get the comments from my blog emailed to me and have been getting many from all my posts with Asian symbols on them. Are any of you getting those from here? If so, how bad is this? What do I need to do about it?

Just delete them and don't click on any links that might be included. They're spam but more annoying than harmful.

Have to agree with Vaklam. I use Skype a lot (especially for free calls and comms with my family in the US including camera for free - end of free ad, Skype!), but I get a lot of 'requests for contact' from ladies of the world's oldest profession. Unless I know anyone, I tend to delete them, or at least open such requests in a manner which will not confirm my name.

So, Oxy [if that is your real name :)] you only answer the requests of the ladies of negotiable virtue if you know them, otherwise you remain anonymous? Interesting... :D

I don't think it's spam- it's a young asian man who has become a follower on all of our blogs! He seems nice enough, and his blog is a gay-themed blog like many of ours. It's mostly pictures of handsome men, not really pornographic but more erotica= not usually naked. I think his comments are bot being tranlisterated correctly somehwere as they pass through the web. I'm sure he means no harm, and if his blog and it's comments don't interest you, just let him know.

As long as you don't find yourself being tracked down by The Supreme Leader you should be okay. The world is getting awfully small...

The new follower's comments don't show up on my blog, just in the emails sent to me from my blog. Strange, I think. I just thought of what could have happened since a friend of mine did that. He probably made the comment by clicking the envelope instead of "comments" but there were so many of them several days on the same posts. 80+ of them!

Debi, somehow I'm wondering if there's an oblique reference to me in that "ladies of negotiable virtue" that Oxy knows and helps. How did you find out? I thought the statute of limitations had run out! ;-)
