Help , I’ve got an Alien inside me !!

Alien

Help !!!!  …. I’ve got an Alien inside me !!!

Not really , but sort of … I  have a very suspicious email following my WP blog ( since two weeks )

For the moment , I’ve not yet  been able to find an option on the WP dashboard to delete it !

It is a completely made up email address from a website , something like “Newsletters Fuuzle”

Big alarmbells are ringing , when you see such a strange and unusual name in an email address :

9d51dd0d-b1ff-42b4-9ddc-8e71d8cb40fc

I found this report saying :    http://stopforumspam.com/ipcheck/149.210.137.43

 Toxic IP address or “bad” email domain

No activity seen from this IP in approximately 7 weeks

Found also this :

The coming days I will ask WP directly ,  or I will post a question on the WP forum how to remove it

    Thanks for the research. I am following those posts and it seems there is not way to remove the “bot” followers.

  2. Roundnews says :

    We got two subscriptions from fuuzle too. A quick search on Google reveals they started following blogs no matter the size. Their site is still under construction and I wonder what the whole purpose of this newsletter signup might be.

    @ Roundnews

    I checked again this link http://stopforumspam.com/ipcheck/149.210.137.43

    They have not made any changes to their comments on Fuuzle

    Last time I checked , an WP administrator had removed this Fuuzle -critter from my list of Blog Followers

    As I expressed it on the WP forum , WP should at the very least allow blog-holders to report very unusual followers

    Also , subscribers to the blog , should be checked that they are genuine real persons , and NOT robots ( this by using Feedburner , Captcha , … )
