banning IPs – spammers
So I have been getting spam from these 8 IPs…
I banned those IPs through a plugin…
Each IP in average would try to comment about 6 comments.
I noticed those spams after I re-did my permalinks to http://www.domain.ca/category/postname (domain.ca/news/politicians-in-miami).
Now that I banned those IPs for about 4 days. ZERO spam comments…
Just curious about a few things…
How often do spammers change their IPs?
Is it done mostly done automatically? The spam was mostly on posts that I created a year ago.
I moderate comments by the way.
Is there a way to check those IPs as to what country they are from? (just out of curiosity).
How do YOU deal with spam from the same IP?
It is a pain in the arse but I have to do some banning. I don’t want to ban @yahoo/hotmail/other free e-mail providers, or specific countries.
