What’s with all the spam?

Comment spam

Leftover unmoderated comments

Over the past few days, I’ve noticed an uptick in spam comments in my dashboard. Email notifications are set up when comments go into moderation so my email has been blowing up lately! I’m assuming the traffic is good for my blog as it’ll help bump up my page ranking?

Funnily enough, those icons represent exactly what I think of these spammers.
