Spam in RSS Feed?

Hello All,

Been a while since I've been on and commented. I apologize. Consumed with wedding planning at the moment.

Strange spam entries keep popping up in the RSS feed from Oort-Cloud. When I click on said spam comment (linked from the feed), the spam isn't on the Oort-Cloud site proper. Anyone else notice this problem? I know spam bots can be exceptionally Insidious. I had to disable comments on my Nucleus-powered blog because it kept getting hit by spam bots.

Yeah, sad to say, there's

Yeah, sad to say, there's life on the net for you.

Paul and I have some structural things in place to help keep spam to a minimum, but there've been some cases where it's slipped through. Fortunately, we've been able to wipe most of it out within a day. (It's quick and easy to get rid of it once we know it's there.) But it may have slipped into some RSS feeds and for that we apologize.

We'll see if there's something extra we can do about that. But in the meantime, if you do stumble across anything spammish, just drop us a line, and let us know. Nothing like mobilizing the community when it comes to dealing with stuff like this.

Thanks

Thanks! I know spam bots are terrible. No big deal though. Everybody gets hit by them from time to time.

Now it's time for me to get off my lazy butt and start working on some stories!
