    hello my name is howard j wilner and:

    I'm just wondering. My blog has been up for about three months and its been fine till now but it seems a bot of some kind keep posting spam in my comments. I would prefere not to have to turn comment moderation on so I am wondering if anybody else is experiencing this and if so does it eventually stop?

    Stock reply follows:

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

    For those who struggle with the Akismet directions: http://wordpress.com/api-keys/

    Askimet + Bad Behavior or Spam karma + Bad Behavior. Search for these plugins. Askimet is already in the default install you'll just need to activiate it then you can install bad behavior which stops many of the spam bots before even posting the spam comment.
