LJ Spam...  
 Is anyone else getting just a TON of spam in their journals lately?  It seems the past few months, I have woken every morning to find at least one Russian one, about three medical ones, and then various website ones.  It's getting to the point where I just want to delete my LJ, which is depressing considering how much fun it is otherwise.

I have been getting those for the last three months. It is really annoying, you think someone is making a normal comment on your journal, I even translated some of the Russian ones to make sure of this and all it is links medical sites and such. It is frustrating having them clog up your inbox, I hope livejournal does something about it soon.

Soooo not the only one! It's ridiculous and I've just resigned myself to some good ol' fashioned Russian when I log on anymore. :P

I'm just getting messeges that I was supposed to get two weeks ago. I didn't even know that there was another lj glitch until a couple days ago.

I never even get notices that I have messages. I'm just on here often enough that I check my inbox constantly.

I used to get those all the time I dont have the lj link anymore but report them to lj as spam bots and they go away immediatly

How do you report as bots? I just do the thing on the comments where it says spam by the deletion. Is that it? :)

I got tons of them, but only from anonymous users, so I blocked that option, it's not like I get sooo many comments on my stuff from anonymous users anyway *winks*
