Person harassing my site

  1. Can a user who is harassing me be blocked or filtered to spam? They are a fellow wordpress user.

    The blog I need help with is

  2. As long as your blog is public anyone can visit and read it

    But you can send comments to moderation so they won't appear on the blog unless they are approved

    Dashboard >> Settings >> Discussion Settings >> Before a comment appears >> An administrator must always approve the comment


    Dashboard >> Settings >> Discussion Settings >> Comment Moderation >> When a comment contains any of these words in its content, name, URL, e-mail, or IP, it will be held in the moderation queue. One word or IP per line. It will match inside words, so “press” will match “WordPress”.

    I have comments on my site set to require approval - easy and nothing gets onto my site that I don't want to get there - the bad news is that you do need to look at the comments from a person that is harassing you -

    there is no way to have comments sent straight to Trash for a specific person - and all they would need to do is get a new email and or visit your site from a different location (the other coffee shop for instance) to get around an IP location flag (but IP addresses are now dynamic for many ISP's - so they might already have a different IP address when they visit anyway)
