Support » Fixing WordPress » Unapproved Comment Spam

  • I recently got a message from Dreamhost saying they had to deactivate my website because of comment spam and the load it was putting on our servers.

    I knew it was coming in awhile ago, so I deleted all the comments, removed the ability to comment, and switch to a comment system that required a facebook login to use.

    Well, apparently spambots can still send comments to your posts, and it puts pressure on your server even if they are marked unapproved.

    What more do I need to do to stop this from happening? Even when I have no “comment field” on my sites, they still manage to get comments into my dashboard and I have to approve or unapprove.

    What’s the best solution to this?

    Thanks!
