    Still learning lots here!

    I'm getting some blog comment spam coming from 127.0.0.1 ... is still a Scrapebox blast? Does anyone know how to secure up my Wordpress site so that it can prevent this type of comment spam?

    That's weird, isn't that the localhost IP? It's like there's a virus in your hosting, you should look into that.

    Sorry if I'm wrong, just what it looks like.

    Yeah, that's the thing ... it is from localhost, which means Akismet won't do any good right?
