    Have searched around in vain for an answer to this one for v3.4.1 - previous answers for former versions don't work as the relevant code doesn't exist in the comments.php. help - how do i remove option for commentators to leave their url in their comments. This is very frustrating and i don't understand why WordPress have included it in this version as surely the default option that most people want is no url in comments (as it just invites spammers and even if they are legit urls, it dilutes your SEO!).

    Go to settings > discussion and use the box for Blacklist and add the following (one per line):
    www
    http
    https

    in addition to the above, you can add other terms that you don't want in your comments. They will held in SPAM.
