FYI – The comments are now back on, for anyone who cares to leave a few words, opinion, abuse, praise, ye-olde maps of buried treasure etc.
The spam bots continue to pester us, so we’ve enabled logins in an attempt to stem the tide. Hope that’s not too much of an imposition.
“900 comment spams on a single blog from the same person in one day is not black hat SEO, itâ€™s just an attack. What do you think is the appropriate response for something like this? – it took me more than 10 minutes just to mark them all as spam and delete them all from my inbox”
Agreed. I’d also like to know how other WordPress user deal with this?
