    Hi,
    is it a bug? I have activated the option that user must be registered to post a comment. But today I get 10 spamcomments from "users" which are not registered in my blog. :| How could it be? And how can I prohibit it?

    They are not "users", they are spambots. Machines.

    Please, take a look at the anti-spam tools offered by the community members: Plugins/Spam_Tools.

    Most people would recommend Bad Behavior and SpamKarma from that list.

    The spam messages you received are most likely trackbacks.

    You can use Bad Behavior to block a great many of these automated spam attacks.
