It can make your readers feel bored when reading the comment parts of your post since they have to keep loading subsequent pages to get to comments that are relevant.

Imagine the time you are supposed to be creating content, you discovered that over 100 comments are awaiting moderation when you check and find out that over 70 of them were spam.

Comments from one visitor appearing in every of your blog post with links could be spam.

  2. Install anti-spam plugins to your website to help fight against spam in your website.
  3. Whenever a visitor writes a comment having more than a link removes the links and approve the comment. When others notice it, they will know you do not like link-sharing or spamming.
  4. Send a direct email to any of your visitors spamming your website comments.


Yes, spam attack on the website is unavoidable, even though a lot of plugins are there to fight against it, there are some automatic plugins for spamming that could penetrate the anti-spam plugins. So the best thing is to be prepared and equipped ahead of time before it starts.

  6. Because Nintendo controlled the production of all cartridges, it was
    able to enforce strict rules on its third-party developers, who were required to sign a
    contract that would obligate them to develop exclusively
    for the system, order at least 10,000 cartridges, and only
    make five games per year. When it comes to
    color accuracy and color uniformity, Datacolor’s Spyder5 Elite display analysis gave the AOPEN
    a rating of at least four out of five. Liquids flow down hills, blocks can be dug out of
    cliffsides, and unstable rock formations come crashing down on players’ heads.

    The goal is to come out alive from these military wars.
    Internet cafes are now a haven for Net cafe refugees of all ages who would
    otherwise be homeless; many people can afford to rent out
    a room at one considering they are not expected to pay other bills that come
    with an apartment such as deposits, fees, furnishing a
    living space, and utilities.
