    help!

    one of my blogs is being hit hard this morning by the same spammer...

    i've got the commenting on approve before posting, but i've gotten like 20 spam comments from this ass in the last hour and it won't stop.

    he's using a proxy, so i can't ban is ip :(

    Just close ALL comments on all posts. he will get discouraged and move on.

    All my blogs have comments disabled (except for CC comments of course)

    > Make sure you've plugged in a CAPTCHA generator - this will rule out automated comments

    > Turn off all comments for a few hours

    At the worst, you'll have to put up with this for a day - then the spammer will move on, as none of this comments get published.

    Good luck!

    hey, here's the link the guy's spamming me with... he hit me so hard i can't log in cuz he's slowed down my site....my site's almost down

    i can't even log in right now....the only thing i've been able to do right now is go through dreamweaver and temporarily remove my comments.php and index.php so the guy can't access the site.

    i wanna take his site down now... i'm so angry. The a$$ has been spamming me every two minutes since 10:00 this morning

    Use reCaptcha. I never get spam comments with it.
