    Hi there,

    Is there a way to prevent spam? I moderate all the comments on my blog but im getting about 10 comments a day from Spammers. How can i prevent this horror of the internet happening?

    use akismet.
    remove the "hello world" post
    i will get spammed at times too. check which post the spams are attached too. Usually, those posts will contain expired domains...

    Go to wordpress plugin database, there are a lot of plugins against spammers.

    Install and activate Akismet -or- Spam Karma 2.
    Then install and activate Bad Behavior.
