On one of my blogs, for some reason, I JUST RECENTLY have been getting hit with spam way more than I had ever been getting. Before, it may have been once every couple of days. Now I'm getting about 40-50 a day.
It just started happening a few days ago when I was using version 3.1.2, and then I did the upgrade to 3.1.3 and thought maybe there would be a security fix or something with it. But alas, it is still happening.
Anyone have any advice on how I could maybe fight back? I've got it set to where the comments do not show up until I "Approve" them, so they're not getting through to the front-end of the site, but it's just horribly annoying to get these e-mails sent to my phone all day, telling me I've got a blog comment, and it just turns out to be spam.
Any insight on what I could do about this would be appreciated. Thanks.
