I'm reaching breaking point with regards to the amount of spam I'm receiving on this account - does LJ do nothing to combat it? What's the point of me Deleting as Spam 30-40 messages a day, when our host seems to be taking no action whatsoever? It's worse than on Instagram, where at least they do let you know they'll review those you've denounced as spammers accounts as soon as possible. Perhaps I should decamp to DW permanently, too? (but then, why bother, as I'm hardly here at all these days? Mind you, I wish it were otherwise - but it's not).

With all that's going on the world -civil wars, tornadoes, triple dip recession-, perhaps I shouldn't confess to being most upset at the news that Matt Smith has decided to leave Doctor Who, for fear of painting myself shallow in the extreme...but I can't help it: I am utterly devastated. IMO, his Doctor has been the maddest, funniest, wonderfullest incarnation of the character in recent years, and I had hoped he would stay with us for a bit longer...ah! if wishes were horses, eh?

You get spam on LJ?? How can that be?

I have Yahoo mail, and it's pretty good at filtering out spam, although, it's pervious to hacking, sadly.

I don't know, but this is the kind of rubbish I've been getting as comments to my posts for the past few months now (and like I said, I get 30 to 40 a day):

Subject: MLB Jerseys From China
These will make you have strong healthy nails by exfoliating dead cells and fortifying living cells with minerals. If a nation imports more than it exports it will have a [url=http://www.cheapjerseysshopchina.com/nba-jerseys-china/]Cheap NBA Jerseys Sale[/url] deficit trade balance which is considered not favorable to currency value. If you [url=http://www.cheapjerseysshopchina.com/]Cheap Jerseys Online[/url] are requesting an autograph, be sure to include a SASE (self-addressed stamped envelope) along with your request. You deserve just the kind of software that would suit you." If the Cowboys can tighten up the penalty problems, if they can establish a run game that allows them to control the flow of the game, if they can force turnovers as they did Sunday, if they can avoid [url=http://www.cheapjerseysshopchina.com/]Cheap Jerseys Direct[/url] turnovers as they have the past two weeks and if the Giants continue to play poorly, the Cowboys could conceivably sneak in and steal this division title in what appears to be a rebuilding season..

Luckily, I've set comments from anonymous accounts to be screened, so no one sees them but for me, but it annoys the crap out of me that all my assiduous reporting seems to fall on deaf ears.

I don't allow commenting from anonymous accounts and I've never had any spam from LJ. That maybe something to consider.

I chose not to ho that route as I have friends that don't have LJ-accounts, but do occasionally visit...although now that I'm not here, perhaps they're not dropping in anymore, either.

That makes sense. I have my set to friends only also, but I tend to dump too much personal info in my journal to leave it where just anyone can see it.

The other day, I thought I might go friends-only, too...I'm still weighing up the pros and cons.

Before I take any drastic decisions, though, I suppose I've should make up my mind first whether to come back online (be it to LJ, FB or DW) at all...

I was also really upset about Matt Smith leaving. He's by far my favourite Doctor (though we have recently caught the series with Christopher Eccleston and I'm reminded why I liked him sooooo much when the series was rebooted, and why it took me quite a while to warm to Tennant.
