    Hi Friends

    I want to know how can I deal with comments spam? I have blacklisted many words and sites by opening the "discussion" tab and save settings but still despite the fact that I have blacklisted the words even two or three times but the same people mess up my site with their unlimited comments please tell me the solution.

    It's very hard to trash or spam hundreds of same comments one by one and specially when I already have blacklisted them.

    Are you using Akismet?

    Yes I had installed that plug in but now I have deactivated it because I think we need some sort of API key for Akismet to work but I don't know how to get that key?
