Dang. I still do. Every single day I received 1-3 spam a day. When is this going to end? I just talk to my friend Andy Bailey (author of CommentLuv Premium) about this and here’s what he suggested for me to do. I thought I’d share it with you. And please if you have any other suggestion to me how to control this, please share it with me.
On your Dashboard here’s what you do:
Settings > Discussion > Comment Blacklist
On that Comment Blacklist, you can enter their URL, IP address, and email address.
Then on your CommentLuv section here’s what you do next:
CommentLuv > G.A.S.P. > Trackback Validation
On that Trackback Validation you can enter one word per line (ex. topsy) then SAVE.
You know I hate to say this…I don’t think CommentLuv could handle the spam alone because it is not filtering my spammers. Is it happening the same to you or is it just me? And so because of that, I am receiving 1-3 spam a day and it doesn’t put it in my spam folder, I have re-installed Akismet again. I know some people are having trouble with this one but it never gave me a problem and so Akismet is *IN*. If you have a better suggestion please share it with me.
Anyway, this particular post is very short. I just want to reach out to my friends and readers about this, what Andy Bailey have suggested for me to do. I haven’t use my hosting service (Hostgator) spam area…because I don’t know how to do this, yet. But I’m gonna have to call them and ask them to walk me through this. It just takes time. Anyway, please share with me your experience.
