    Is there a widget or some barrier reef or a moat I can build to stop the proliferation of SPAM COMMENTS?

    It seems DAILY, I am getting oh, 5 - 10 SPAM COMMENTS on my site. Anyway to BLOCK them? Or automate a FILTER?

    Anyone?

    Beuller?

    yup

    akismet - comes with WP, will send most spam to a spam folder where you can delete them

    in combination with akismet, install the cookies for comments plugin, that will either send spam to the spam folder, or delete them automatically, your choice. This plugin is great for blocking automated spambots

    The combination of those 2 works wonders for me
