Why can't Akismet kill [email redacted] ?

  1. Can't WordPress's spam control get rid of this evil spammer? [email redacted]

    They've been leaving 40 or more spam comments per day in my spam folder and I have to delete them all. What is Akismet for if it doesn't catch these obvious spams?

  2. If they're winding up in your spam folder, Akismet is already catching them.

    You don't need to delete them from the spam folder, it's emptied automatically every 15 days.

    You need to enable Akismet on your blog

    The site you are asking about does not seem to be hosted on WordPress.COM so you need to make friends over at WordPress.ORG the keepers of the software you are using.

    This site is for support of sites hosted on WordPress.COM. You should address your questions to WordPress.ORG the keepers of the software you are using: http://wordpress.org/support/

    1. This support forum is only for those with free hosted WordPress.com blogs.

    2. The support forum http://wordpress.org/support/for those with WordPress.org installs is here httP://wordpress.org/support/

    3. This is the link to Akismet support http://akismet.

    but it is a nightmare on .org can you help please.

    The reality is that WordPress.org installs get way more spam than WordPress.com blogs do but it's no big deal as Akismet works very well. if you aren't clear on that read this > http://akismet.com/how/
