That is a lot of spam.

Spammers often auto-search by finding keywords so perhaps you're inadvertently using too many of the keywords they like in your drabbles? A little like how we used to get all those spammers selling kitchens here because of the Kaffee und Kuchen forum name.

They also probably like the fact that your account is so active and that you get a lot of comments and respond to them.

Not sure what to suggest unfortunately

I've had a couple today. They're registering under ordinary names - James, Charles, Rebecca, etc - which makes them much harder to spot than when they register under a random jumble of letters. I haven't got any answers either!

I get alerts for them all, Alison, and actually those ones you've named you can delete, which I seem to end up doing every single day. :roll: Whereas posts from spammers like suningham etc are stuck there.
