[Resolved] Getting spam comments despite Akismet IP filtering

  • For the first few months my blog ran under the spammer radar, but now is getting dozens of spam posts per day, all from the same base IP (194.8.75.x).

    I have Akismet up and running, and it’s capturing all of the comments successfully.

    I also have Settings>>Discussions>>Comment Blacklist set up to filter out the offending IP, with “194.8.75.” in the input window.

    Shouldn’t that prevent the comment from being submitted in the first place? Or am I missing something?

    Thanks.

  • Block the IP in your htaccess (you can do this from Cpanel if you have this with your host – under IP Deny Manager)…

    I’ve had spam from that IP range, they now end up in error logs as a “Denied Access”… 🙂

    Also quite alot from the 92.112.***.*** range lately…
