Invasion of the Bloggy snatchers

Author: Helen

When I checked the Balcony this morning, the latest post was missing. After first-line technical response (aka blinking sleepily and refreshing the page) I realised it really was not there. Logging into the site admin, I found the post in its usual listing, but with a whole heap of HTML added: a bunch of links to the usual V1@gr@, “buy tickets” and similar nonsense.

So the comment spammers have found a way to insert HTML into your posts. Just a warning to the unwary WordPress blogger: If a post disappears, go into the “manage posts” page, find the missing item and check the text carefully.

Update 29/6: The buggers just did it to this post. Fixed now. Effing cheek!
