I got spammed yesterday with 30 blog postings showing up on my Blogger Dashboard. Each one was from "roy at Book Review". I have never heard of his blog and he is not listed in my favorites. So how did all these blog postings show up on my dashboard? I looked into it a little bit further. I clicked on the highlighted part of "roy at Book Review" (which was the "Book Review" part) and it took me to his site which gave an in depth review of the book. But what caught my attention was up at the top where it shows you what site you are on, it said I was on "frannbro.blogspot.com". That site is or was Frann Brother's site who was building a sand bag house near Terrilingua. It appears that she stopped blogging and some spammer is now using her site and getting listed on the dashboard of all those who used to read her blog; or she got a new part time job (grin).
Now tell me, what good is it doing this Roy fellow to flood a site with book reviews? Is he getting paid a certain amount for each review he posts? So far, I haven't detected anything else devious that it has done other than to have filled up a large part of my dashboard. This is the second time I have received spam from a blog site that is idle or abandoned. It seems these spammers search for sites that have not been used for awhile and take them over. I guess I must live a protected life, because I have no idea what so ever would make a person want to do that if it were not for some monetary reason. If it were out of meanness, he would have put something nasty in it. If he wanted to get attention; well he got it out of me. Hope I didn't make his day but I want all you out there to have a great day, you hear?
