Sitewide Comment Control

Blacklist, moderate, or spam a list of unregistered commenters across your entire Multisite Network.

If I change the blacklist using this plugin, will it change the Comment Blacklist?

No, this is completely separate.

Does this list the rejected posters?

If you set comments to be spammed or moderated, they will show up in the appropriate section of your comments page. If you set comments to be blackhole'd, no one will ever see them. Ever.

Will this block user names?

No, it only blocks by email address.

Why don't you block IPs?

I don't find it useful to do in WordPress. If you're blocking IPs, given how dynamic they are, it won't do you any good in the long run on the app level. This should be done at the server level.

Will this block partial emails?

Yes. If you put example.com in your list, it will block anything@example.com.

Be very careful when you do this! If you put in just the letter a for example, you will block all email addresses with that letter. I strongly recommend you only use full domains ('example.com', not just 'example').

Will this block wildcards?

No. You cannot block foo*@gmail.com at this time. This is a highly requested feature, but it's complicated to get right without making your network unbearably slow. It doesn't scale well in my tests. Pull requests welcome.

Will this block existing users?

This plugin will not block any logged in user, even if their email is on the list. If you don't want them commenting, delete their accounts. It's assumed if you let someone on your site, you mean for them to have access.

Does this work on MultiSite?

Yes, it does.

Does this work on Single Site installs?

No, and what's the point? You already have a blacklist for that.

Does this work on BuddyPress?

I don't know. Let me know!
