MT-Blacklist does an excellent job of preventing comment spam here. However, one spammer’s posts were getting through: the one common factor is an email address: The problem with blocking these is that the #### is a different 2-4 digit string each time.

Goodbye, Bob.


  1. Since adding this entry to the blacklist, it’s blocked more than 100 attempts to spam comments. If nothing else, this is a good reason to stay behind the curve!
