    Hi, my blog was hacked into yesterday. I had to change my password this morning to gain access, and everything seems normal, but I’m receiving dozens of spam comments. Any way to resolve this?

    The blog I need help with is mamawearpapashirt.com.

    Just send them all to spam. You may wish to temporarily set it so ALL your comments are moderated, just until it stops in a week or a few days. The more you send to spam, the quicker Akismet learns and then they’ll all automatically go to spam.

    Thanks, I’ll try that.

    This has just happened to me. I’ll continue to send to spam.
