Spammers Update

A bit back, I mentioned that spammers seemed to be trying to hijack my phone with the wordpress app through the Amazon app store. Well, the same thing was attempted through the Android Market but the Android Market did’t let the app get that far. I’m thinking the WordPress folks are having issues.

    I just run my blog directly through the web browser. It has its difficulties, but hasn’t been enough for me to bother with an ap.

    I have a Typepad blog, and the spammers have increased their activity 25X on it. Og the Neanderpundit noted this as well. My guess is that WordPress is trying to pinch pennies, has few to no staff assigned directly to the problems of keeping up with the spammers.

    That will reflect directly in the bottom line, and when the directors notice that, they will fix the issues. Too bad the good ideas can’t flow from the bottom up at that company.

    This is why I have a dumbphone. I also have a pocket computer, which I never connect to the internet.

    I can say I have never encountered this particular problem or series of occurrences, but I downloaded the WP app through the Android Market, and it may or may not be different from the one through the Amazon app store.
