Comments are being duplicated (maliciously)

  • Info:
    – My blog is at: http://uzi.wirelesszer0.com
    – I use Wordbooker (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordbooker/) to crosspost my blog entries on to Facebook. People are able to post comments either on facebook or on the blog. the corresponding comment shows up in both places automatically.

    Problem:
    Lately, some comments have been appearing as duplicates. I don’t think this is just a mistake, because the name and date of posting are not the same. For example, a person named jude (who I know personally) comments on an entry. six or seven hours later someone else named Rick posts the same comment on the same entry.

    i can verify the original commentors, because they are my friends. However, the duplicate entries are always someone I do not know. if it happened once or twice i could let it go as someone trying to be funny, but its happening more often now.

    Password protection:
    I really don’t want to got this route. Since its a new blog, people are not willing to comment anyway, and password protection for comments adds another hurdle for them.

    Is there anyway I can solve this issue without introducing password protection?
