Spam comments

    I am getting spam comments from a forex spam site -I have received about 20 today alone. How do I block this?

    The blog I need help with is africajournalismtheworld.com.

  2. I have a similar problem, almost daily receive "comments" from an ugg dealer site. Annoying! I wish I could figure out how to completely block sites like this so I don't even see them in my spam.

  3. If you get spam that slips by Akismet then mark it as spam (do not delete it) and over time Akismet will learn it's spam.

    On the spam that Akismet catches it takes only seconds to click "empty spam" and you don't even have to click "empty spam" if you don't want to. Akismet will maintain comments it has caught for 15 days from the time they were received, and then it will delete the comment automatically.

    The vast and overwhelming majority of all so-called information on the internet is spam. Over 80% of all so-called comments submitted to .wordpress.com blogs every day are spam.

    There is no such thing as eliminating all spam and Akismet is handling your spam correctly. Please don't brood about this. For more information please take the time to read "5 things every blogger should know about spam" on this page Akismet: How it works http://akismet.com/how/
