Somebody has dumped links into my comments to get-rich-quick schemes. Obviously I deleted the "comment." Is this a concern or are we simply just to hit the delete button?

I always hit the delete button when a spammer decides that it's ok to dump links on my pages. If nothing else I feel great satisfaction knowing that they completely wasted their time and effort!

Not really a reason for concern, Rupert. Unfortunately, it's part of the business.

We have a security system in place that automatically deletes mass spammers. For individual cases like yours, simply delete that stuff, or set your comments to "moderate" (in your account settings).

This is probably a good place to mention that I don't see any way to delete comments on my articles. I'm on a Mac, and I've mentioned that Wizzley isn't very Mac friendly, but I wasn't aware until recently that I was missing another feature.

My main browser is Safari, but I have to use another browser as a backup because pages freeze on Safari, and I have to keep refreshing. I post articles with SeaMonkey so I don't lose work while I'm working. It also doesn't show any way to delete comments, and scrolling is jerky. Just tried Firefox to see if there's a delete button. Nope. 

Any chance your developer could take some time to help out Mac users?

Catana - could you please repost (copy) your problem into a new thread? Under "Help me, please!"

Could you please elaborate on this, Sam? The link didn't work for me and I don't really know what you mean with your statement.

I think she meant that the link had been replicated therefore still providing potential clickthroughs for the spammer?

Oh, I got it. Rupert posted the spam link, but Anne erased it before I saw it. That's why I couldn't make any sense of Sam's statement. All clear now.

Correct, I removed the bad link in my quote and Ann removed it in the original post ;-) SY
