    Can anyone help me figure out to stop 50 random spamming comments that show up on an assorted amount of my videos and photographs?
    I figured out how to delete these and mark as spam but is there a way to prevent this?

    Thank you in advance.

    Is there a free way to do this or is this the only way?

    Akismet is free for non-commercial sites and the Cookies For Comments plugin is free for any site. Captchas, on the other hand, don't work.

    I uploaded it but then it asked me for a key which costs $5/month.
    Where do I find the free version?

    If you are running a non-commercial site, just register an account (just an account - not a blog) on wordpress.com to obtain your free API key.
