    I have been getting like 100 comments a day from 1 email, they are all junk , spam comments that are in a a different language. I want to block this somehow, it is going into my comments rather than my spam box.

    Please help, this is driving me crazy! How do I go about blocking this?

    in the Admin area goto: Settings > Discussion Settings >
    look for the part about: "Comment Blacklist", it says:

    When a comment contains any of these words in its content, name, URL, e-mail, or IP, it will be marked as spam. One word or IP per line. It will match inside words, so “press” will match “WordPress”.
