Comment blacklist not stopping spam (2 posts)

    I have Akismet and I also use the comment blacklist to block some IP's and include certain keywords. However, I still keep getting the same spam (from an IP I blocked and including the keywords I put on the blacklist). It ends up in the spam folder, but why isn't Akismet totally blocking it? Is there a way to let Akismet know that this really is spam?

    sometimes you just need more
    install these two plugins and spam is done

    I use these on several 2.8 installs without problems and they work great.
