    Hi,

    I have IPs that I can never get blocked, for example,
    173.233.65.154
    216.218.211.56
    75.72.200.109

    What can I do about it?

    Thanks,

    TZ

    You can set up htaccess rules for that if your hosting supports it.

    You can also add the IPs to the blacklist in Settings/Discussion. Their comments will be automatically marked as "spam".

    Plugging my Plugin:
    AVH First Defense Against Spam will stop these.

    They won't even be able to post a comment.
