Monkey Trapped Spam is a WordPress plugin that automatically places the IP address of spam comments in the local comments blacklist.
When you mark a comment “spam” Monkey Trapped Spam will automatically add the author’s IP address to the internal WordPress comment black list. Any comment coming from that IP address in the future will go straight to spam. Monkey Trapped Spam learns and becomes more effective the longer it’s installed.
Upon installation Monkey Trapped Spam will scan your current spam comments and add the author’s IP addresses to your internal WordPress comment black list as well.
If you select “Participate” on the settings page Monkey Trapped Spam will send a copy of spam comments to the Monkey Trapped Spam server to help build a comprehensive comment spammer black list.
If you select “Update Blocklist” on the settings page Monkey Trapped Spam will retrieve a list of the most common IP addresses used by comment spammers from the server and add them to your internal WordPress comment black list giving you a head start.
