Banning a specific e-mail address in Spam Karma 2 (3 posts)

    Is there a way to add a specific e-mail address to the Spam Karma blacklist? I am trying to ban a specific user who always enters the same e-mail address but seems to be bouncing from IP address to IP address. I know that Spam Karma keeps track of e-mail addresses because addresses that have been attached to a lot of good comments earn good karma -- in fact, that's my problem, as this guy posted a lot before he became such an jerk that I felt compelled to ban him. I can't figured out how to get at the karma values for those addresses though! Any help would be helpful! (I'm open to alternate methods of banning peple too, obviously.)

    I'll second that. If there's a way to do it using the e-mail address or user name with Regex, I haven't figured it out yet. He keeps slightly changing the content so I can't really get him there. Any help would be appreciated.

    If he's never succeeded in getting a comment published you could use Peter Westwood's companion plugin to SK2 which moderates all first time commenters.

    I wish Dr. Dave would integrate SK2 w. WP's default anti spam features so you could use WP's defautl e mail banning feature. I once asked Peter Westwood to consider attempting to tweak the plugin in that way but he never got around to it & I didn't push him.

    I too asked Dr. Dave about using Regex in that fashion I think he replied that you had to know a helluva lot about Regex to do that (& I don't). But I could be misremembering the exchange. Maybe you just can't do it period.
