Black Listing one person from commenting?

  1. I have the book WordPress for Dummies, and in it, it talks about "Black Listing" a person from commenting, In my case, there is a comment that has shown up, albeit nice, the person that has made the comment has shown up on a website forum for a year now, been banned from that site, had numerous lawsuits tried to filed against him, and he has posted defamatory comments and remarks against the owner of this forum (www.wickerwoman.com) on his sites and other places, another chair caner in Ohio had to get a court order for harrassment against this person. Now he shows up commenting on my blog.

    I would like to know the best way to totally exclude this person from making comments to my blog, or doing anything. I don't need the headaches this person has caused these other people over the past two years.

    Please let me know the best way to deal with a situation like this one.

    The blog I need help with is hbs1991.wordpress.com.

  2. So, this person hasn't done anything wrong on your site, although you know he or someone using his name has done things that are wrong in the past.

    If I were you, I would take no action as long as the comments are not offensive.

  3. Well it did not take 12 hours for the person described above to do exactly what I told you he did to the others. He is getting bulligerant and nasty, so now I will come back to my original question.
    How do I block this person period from posting comments to my blog, If I hit spam, will that do it for all future visits to my blog or just the one time?? Believe me he has been known to just keep on pumping out the ugly comments and hatred. So I want to nip it in the bud from this point on.

    The book WordPress for Dummies, described Blacklisting, but did not say how that was to be accomplished.

    So I have not touched his comment awaiting further word from you. or someone here.

  4. Did you ever configure discussion setting?
    For block spammer:
    Setting >> Discussion >>
    And in Discussion page, please enter that spammer id (email or ip address) at comment moderation or comment blacklist .

  5. Look about half-way down in this support document for the procedure: http://support.wordpress.com/settings/discussion-settings/ .
