Receiving comments meant for random fashion website (3 posts)

    I have recently been receiving comments on my posts that have no relationship to the content I have submitted. At first I thought that they were just random prank comments but on further investigation they seem to be meant for a fashion website. They are from different users but all relate to similar content. I have put the IP addresses in the comments blacklist but is there any way to solve this issue?

    Without seeing any of them, it sounds like you're being targeted for comment SPAM.

    There's a few good plugins to combat this. Akismet is the most widely known, so that's a very good first step. I've also heard good things about Cookies For Comments but I haven't used that before.

    Thanks catacaustic, I have activated Akismet, fingers crossed.
