Repeat commenter won't go away . . .

  1. In the comments section for a recent post, I got a comment from a new reader. I thought about deleting it, but then decided to attempt a reply, thinking it might develop into a decent topic for discussion. Now, after about five comments sharing the same thing, I want to prevent this commenter from posting on my blog again without my approval. In other words, I want to leave what comments are there alone, and at the same time place this particular commenter under the banner of "always needing moderation" if that makes sense. Is there a way to do this . . . I know I can turn on moderation for all comments. I do that now. But once I have approved someone, they can post without moderation. I like this, and don't want to stop doing it this way. I just want to keep this *one particular* commenter from being able to post willy-nilly on my blog any longer.

    Suggestions . . . ?

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

  2. On your dashboard, go to settings - discussion. You can list keywords which will either blacklist a comment or set it to be moderated. Use the commenter's name, email, or other identifying feature.

  3. Sweet. Such an easy fix. I really need to have my first coffee of the day . . . quickly!

    Seriously, thanks for the tip.
