    I hope its not one of you guys in here but some fag is spamming comments on my blog everyday. The thing is, he's using the same IP over and over which I find it dumb. Is there anyway to block this guy? Any WP plugin?

    If I remember right, John Chow had a post about a plugin for WP a couple weeks ago that blocked ip from spammers. I'm on my blackberry or I would share the link.

    you can block by IP through control panel or are you talking about blocking IP and automatically making it a spam comment (that's what's doing now)? yes i do have access its my own site.

    write this into your .htaccess file
    Code:
    order allow,deny
    deny from 127.0.0.1
    allow from all
    
    replace 127.0.0.1 with the spammers ip

    omg no way lol. i use to get a kick out of post like these on the spam forums about getting spammed. just fix it, and move on. most of the people here would love to spam ur comments if given the chance. just make it so they can't.

    pot calling the kettle black?

    correct me if i'm wrong but that just automatically mark it as spam, it doesn't really get rid of them i still have to manually delete. I'm gonna try the .htaccess tonight though. Thank you
