I’ve been using Disabled Comments for a year on a WP site I run, and I have everything ticked as far as turning off comments. No comment template has ever appeared, and I have never worried about having to watch for comments. Lately, I noticed I was getting quite a few page views on some pages, and I opened them up to see if anything was amiss. Sure enough, there were a ton of comments on those pages having nothing to do with the page content. I went into the loops files associated with my theme and removed any coding with the word “comments” in it, and that has cleaned things up for now. I have no doubt that these people will be back to try again. I just wanted to alert everyone that hackers are coming up with a way around this plugin.
