Word Press Spam Fighter Suddenly Failing (5 posts)

    I have a brilliant spammer attacking me.

    I added one of his domains from his e-mail adress to the blacklist, yet I get tons of comments with it to moderate. I even get a few that make it live on my site, without having a post previously approved!

    What is going on? I suppose mostly I'm trying to alert the staff of flaws. But I'm also wondering if this is happening at other blogs.

    What anti-spam plugins are you using ?
    What others have you tried ?

    I'm using the 3 strikes one. It seems that within Word Press, when I mark something as spam, nothing "learns" from it. I can get a comment go to moderation again that has the same e-mail address or something.

  5. Marking the comments as [spam] only holds the comments in your database in preparation for an upcoming feature.
