The comment system is about to drive me insane

  • First, the amount of spam that I receive via the comments form is unreal. I get hundred’s per day. Obviously I have it set to where I have to moderate those types of messages. But in the past 3 or 4 days I’ve had a new problem. Despite me changing no preferences at all, ALL comments get put into moderation and I get an e-mail when ANY comment is made. Any ideas?

  • Okay, great. That will help with the spam problem. But what about the issue with EVERYTHING getting moderated all of the sudden and me getting e-mailed for EVERY comment even though I don’t have that option checked?

    You might have a blank line somewhere in your Spam Words list. Double-check it.

    And (as always), double-double-check your moderation settings 🙂

    I used to have email-for-moderation switched on, then disabled it when the flood of spam started.

    I’m using WPBlacklist, which is a life-saver.

    However, the emails never stopped coming. The only way to stop them is to enter a bad email for admin.

    this is for sites running 1.2 and 1.2.1. I don’t think I’ve upgraded to 1.2.2 yet **embarrassed**

    Ah ha…RustIndy hit the nail on the head I believe. I had 2 blank lines in my Spam Words list. Doh!
