    I got my very first comment spam this morning !! :)
    Anyway, I thought I had the Blacklist hack installed, but on checking I must have forgotten to replace it when upgrading at some point.
    I also had not completed the option to have WP check for words in comments. So I was unprotected.
    I have now added the list of words from the Wiki to my WP Options, but am wondering if I need also to reinstall Blacklist.
    Do their functions crossover ?
    Is there an advantage to having both ?
    I'm using 1.2a 10/3/4 build btw.

    @pods: the blacklist and the CVS comment moderation use the same principles, but are not the same hack. The blacklist is a little more comprehensive but it also stops a lot of good comments from being posted because of the large number of regular expressions. If you have not installed the hack already, I would copy and paste the list of domains from blacklist.txt into the form in wp-admin.
    HTH
    Peace
