What every genuine philosopher…craves most is praise – although the philosophers generally call it ‘recognition’!

I’ve searched high and low for a solution today after one of my blogs got spammed repeatedly every 15mins or so. Basically the comments would be filled with gibberish text while the spammer’s URL led to some gambling site. His/Her IP address also kept changing, and judging from the frequency, it seemed to be the work of an automated comment spam software. The only long term solution that was up to the challenge seem to be a WP blacklist plugin. It not only imports a public blacklist of known spammer details, but also adds regex search on your comments to detect spam then adds it to your blacklist database before deleting it.

Download WPBlacklist 2.6 plugin if you want protection from spam.
