Banning an ISP (4 posts)

    My site keeps getting spammed by bigpond.net.au. I have Users must have previously approved comments turned on, and I'm going to go put Users must register on if it isn't already, but I was wondering - how can I ban a DNS suffix? My ISP doesn't support .htaccess.

    Thanks,
    Brenton

    Take a look at the following:

    Or at the Codex:

    There are different ways of getting rid of the spam described.

    Thanks for the links. I didn't have BB or SK2 installed. I'll download both and see which one is better. Thanks much!
