You login to your newly installed WordPress site, and what do you know? You are greeted with a number of comments congratulating you for a job well done. One such comment is:
“Rather interesting. Has few times re-read for this purpose to remember. Thanks for interesting article. Waiting for trackback”
This somehow warms the heart, doesn’t it? It does, if you have articles published in your site.
“How could this be?”, you ask. “I have not even posted anything yet.”
Welcome to the real world, my friend. These days, even the pretty standard “Hello world!” test post is not spared by spammers.
