I searched for info on this and couldn't find anything that answers my problem.
It seems like about once a week, the 'Comment Moderation' list of words (urls, etc) becomes corrupted. By that, I mean - blank lines appear where they did not exist before.
Each time, I take out the entire list - delete the existing list - edit it in notepad to make 'sure' there are no blank lines and no spaces at the beginning and end of any word/url/line.
I put it back in the moderation list textbox and re-save/update it.
Then, a week or so later it occurs again.
Does this sound like a familiar problem that anyone else is experiencing?
By the way, it only happens to the 'comment moderation' list - never to the 'blacklist'.... isn't that a bit strange?
Anyway, thanks for any help. All the best.
