Hello Everybody, sadly I have some disappointing news. There has been some nasty suspect activity going on around WordPress based blogs (starting on April 2nd). It involves a “Spamming” attack from a third party server. It involves a person or persons leaving likes on bloggers’ comments but the web address that these supposed likes originate from are linked to websites providing inappropriate “adult”material. They have swarmed WordPress blogs around the net and they have “liked” comments blog authors leave on other member’s blog pages (and usually older comments posted 2-3 weeks past).
WordPress are aware of the situation and are working on a fix to stop the whole thing getting worse. We have also been advised to turn off the option to leave likes on comments made on our sites. It is unfortunate and when the “fix” has been established then maybe likes can be re-instated.
