I have a major spam problem on my site at http://www.weightlossladder.com
Every day I am deleting around 50-100 spam comments. This morning I went into my settings/discussion and under 'comment blacklist' I entered the IP addresses and some common spam words eg 'burberry' 'outlet' one per line as instructed and saved.
I'm disappointed to see tonight another 35 comments awaiting moderation - including the IP addresses and words such as 'outlet' that I had blacklisted. I was expecting these comments to automatically be diverted to the spam folder and I would not receive notification emails for them, or have to manually remove them again.
I checked my discussion settings and sure enough the words and IP addresses I listed are still there.
Can anyone enlighten me how to get my comment blacklist working properly or am I missing something? Thanks in advance
