Why do I get comment spam into “Awaiting moderation”?

  • Hi all,

    I have searched the forums for an answer but I haven’t found one.

    I have comments on my site activated and I use the “Users must be registered and logged in to comment” part. I got 3 registered users and all are people I know. Despite this fact, I am getting lots of spam into my “awaiting moderation” page. Why is that and how can that be? Don’t the spammers have to log on and then write a message for it to end up in there? I am not seeing any new user registrations. I am running version 1.5.1.2.

    Thanks.
