Five spam comments in ninety minutes. Five. Come on LJ, isn't it time to start blowing people up now? I'm sure war has been declared before with less provocation. I wouldn't mind so much, but they're all posting exactly the same comment. Don't let's be dull as well as irritating, folks. The latter might have some limited comic appeal, but the former never does.

ETA: There's been another three in the two hours since I posted that. If this carries on, I might try turning off comments at the weekend. That seems to be when things are at their worst. Some of the links associated with this spam outbreak are reported to contain some pretty nasty rootkit viruses, so the more that's done to contain them, the better.

You can set comments to friends only. That's what a few people on my flist seem to be doing at the moment.

I rather miss when the spam was anonymous and in chinese. Somehow it irritated me less than the ones claiming they're desperately in love with me and just too shy to say so unless I click on their link somehow.

Yes, going friends only at the weekends might be a good idea. I hadn't thought of that. Thank you! I still think blowing people should be an option as well though.
