    Ive been having spambots on my wordpress blog but i dont know how to block them. they change the ip address constantly. it spams like once per hour and its annoying as hell. it doesnt show up on my website though but it is "awaiting moderation". It doesnt matter how often i click spam, it keeps coming up again.

    Is there a way to get rid of these spammers ???

    Any help is appreciated!

    Have you activated Akismet yet? It came with your version of WordPress.

    See also Combating_Comment_Spam for more options and ideas.
