Update: So, I posted a comment on dA's Facebook page about it, so let's hope they read it and get their butts in gear. This is really starting to get seriously annoying... the spammers are going to OLD images of mine now and posting comments on those.
What the heck do they hope to even gain? I'm willing to bet it's all for annoyance factor but good grief... stop it already.
To those who haven't had this kind of thing happen (yet), consider yourself fortunate. It's not fun having to report multiple comments of nothing but weight loss and fake jobs spam...
Also: I am so severely sorry if somehow by some weird circumstance my account is a link/gateway to spam comments. People seem to be commenting about 'right after I read this I got a spam comment' which makes me wary that somehow this journal is linked to spam comments.
Unlikely but... Still... Ugh.
EDIT: All of a sudden gets bombarded with fight spam messages! 50 minutes after is uploaded?! JEEZE! STOP IT ALREADY, GAHD! That is REALLY REALLY REALLY starting to get on my nerves. EVERY. COMMENT.
dA... please get a better filter for your 'spam bot' problem
I'm getting sick of all these "Be your own boss! Try here! [link]"
and "I earned $800 today from home! [link]"
comments on bot only my work but also other peoples work as well. It's just sickening up ridiculous this has gotten.
I saw an image yesterday that was chock FULL of flipping spam comments. The whole first 2 pages of comments were nothing but spam comments from different accounts but all the same basic 3-4 comment charades.
I get it, it's difficult to stop them entirely but good grief. They're getting a bit out of hand now...
Normally it wouldn't bother me if there was one or two occasionally as no website is immune to the spam hacks but man alive this issue has been going on for months now and it doesn't seem to ever stop or lessen. The subject matter that's sent in comments does; now it's fake ass job offers (which are all mostly links to hack/phishing/virus sites).
At least they're not all the advertising free kiddie porn ones now, thank heavens.
Although those still get through somehow...
Blahblahblahblahblah... bitchwhinebitchwhine... I know.
Still... I can't be the only one that's bothered by seeing other people's artwork being spammed to high heaven with fake links and stuff. It's not even my own work but it bothers me to see it happening to others. Eventually I hope they do something about it. If you do see those stupid comments, don't click the links no matter how 'real' or convincing they look. If they have 'bit.y' or '.co.m' or '.gen' anywhere in them... DON'T click them.
I know y'all aren't stupid but some people may not know what's up so this warning was for them. Don't click links unless you know what they are and who they came from.
Sorry for the vent. No I'm not mad just a bit miffed by the spam parade unfolding on dA lately.
EDIT: Oh look... after posting this I just got a few more! Now they're telling me I need to lose weight. Thanks. Sadly...If I actually lose anymore weight there will be none of me left .__.
