Digg Spammers

Comment spammers are thick on social networking sites like Digg most of their comments include a link back to a bogus site. If you go to their profile you will see all of the spam they have posted and it is easy to bury from there. Post a link to that page here and we can all bury it as spam.

Will advise when I 'hear' anything.


I reported it to SiteHound, it will be blocked by now I'm sure. They are very fast to get on anything reported. Of course not everyone is using the program. But if G gets it taken down that will be good.

I buried every submission as Spam and left a comment: "Links to a site actively serving Malware."

Looks like our patrols of Digg are having the desired effect in getting spammers and malware distributors removed from the site as quickly as possible.

Didn't see these. TeMerc has also noticed a big drop and I don't get pinged from him to bury...lol But the other day he spied an entry from SpyHunter. Guess time is up on their promise not to do that. :roll:

I saw an entry from ESG the other day, also. Probably the same one TeMerc saw.

Since the entry linked directly to their site for a removal procedure and the included video was pretty decent actually, I left it alone.

Yes, the article was submitted by ESG and included a prominently marked download link for SpyHunter (Free Scanner).
