    Comments and pingbacks can be sent by anybody.

    To put a check and stop spam install akismet plugin for free.

    Use Akismet or take a look in the Plugin directory for anti-spam plugins, some work rather well.

    Comment spam is common and the type your are talking about often comes from bots, bypassing some of your settings. As the previous posters mentioned, Akismet is one of the best ways to combat this. You could also look at using some plugins that have Captcha built in for commenting.

    Ok thanks guys, I was under the impression that Akismet had a monthly charge to it? I think Captcha is a good idea, will also check the plugins.
