WordPress has become one of my favourite pieces of software. Switching from Joomla to WordPress has been a snap, with one exception, dealing with the huge amount of comment spam. My blog is less than 3 months old and the amount of WordPress comment SPAM that I’m receiving is enormous.
Searching through the many posts on WordPress, I am seeing that there are many other WordPress users dealing with comment SPAM as well. The IP addresses of the comment spammers seem to be pretty consistent. I’ve blocked the range of IP addresses, and have now installed several plug-ins to deal with the comment spam that I’m receiving. Hopefully this will solve the problem, or at least put a dent in it.
If things don’t change, I will be switching back to Joomla. I have better things to do than delete hundreds of SPAM comments from my WordPress blog. Anyone have any suggestions on how to deal with this?
