    I removed the field where commenters could leave their URL, but I am still getting LOTS of spam comments with URLs where the URL field was. How are they able to leave their URL if I removed the field? What can I do to stop it?

    Here is a link to a post:

    As you can see, there is no URL field in the comments. How are people still adding the URL to the field?

    Has anyone else had this problem?

    Web bots are designed specifically for WP so they can actually submit form fields without the form existing at all. Just because the form field is missing doesn't mean the data isn't sent to the processor.

    Thank you - is there anyway to stop them from posting then?
