Hi guys and girls, how are you?
First of all: I absolutely LOVE WordPress for the opportunities it offers you to create and maintain a blog. I hired someone to set everything up for me and the blog has worked it's magic ever since, and it's becoming more and more popular these days.
There's only one problem: the comment "system" is totally dead, which PREVENTS rather than stimulates community activity, or community creation for that matter.
And I'll tell you why:
I currently have 424 comments, none of them are relevant, and ALL of them are SPAM! Is there any way I can "clean up" the comments section of the blog in a way that not only removes the spam, but prevents any future spamming as much as possible?
I was thinking about implementing the Relish plugin so people are rewarded with a report or something like that whenever they comment on an article, and I was wondering if that will slow the spamming down?
I basically want to start promoting making comments business wide, but the bottleneck is spam here. Can anyone please help me on my way?
Any help is MUCH appreciated!
With kindest regards,
