Spam from Mr. Skin keeps getting by blacklist--what's going on? (4 posts)

    Hey there, I've been having an impossible time stopping someone from MrSkin.cc from posting comment spam. I've entered every email, username and domain the guy uses into the blacklist field and his comments still get through. Akismet and WP-Morph 1.5 also fail to stop him. Does anyone have any ideas on why this is and/or how to stop him? He doesn't spam that much, but it's still spam. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

    dunno what a "WP-Morph" is, but have you considered installing the Bad Behavior plugin?

    No I haven't--not familiar with that. What does it do?

    It does wonderful things. :-) Essentially, it blocks the bad guys before they even get a chance to lob spam in your direction. Works well for killing bots and various trackback spammers.
