It’s really great post.Thanks for shearing it.

So time to take action against such spammers. There is a very easy to block a user commenting on your blog forever. Well this is not blocking but it will automatically mark such comments to spam.

From Settings->Discussion add the words/IP addresses/URLs etc in Comment Blacklist box and save the settings.

Enter one word per line. See the image below:

WordPress Comment Blacklist

Vladimir Prelovac has got a huge list already so you can use it. Download the file, extract it, open the .txt file and copy & Paste the content into Comment Blacklist.

Normally Akismet takes care of all such spammers so I don’t need to worry much. But this particular sick a$$ is just annoying.

From now onwards all his comments will go directly into Spam.
