Unhappy blog spam!!!!

I've got some kind of bot that's trying to post comments on my blog (actually only for one specific post), and it's really getting ridiculous.

The blog's spam filter has worked very well so far and only a couple spam comments have got through -- but every time there is a comment that is tagged as possible spam I get an email asking me to approve/delete the comment in question. In the past few days I've received 300+ such emails and it's extremely annoying.

Anyone know what I can do about this? It's filling my email inbox with worthless emails and makes it tough to get to the things I actually want to read.

You could just put a spam filter on your email account and ignore those blog spam emails altogether. Assuming those emails are almost always about spam comments.

You can turn off the setting to be emailed when there is a new comment.

I'm trying to install a plugin to ban ip addresses though because I'm having the same problem as you.

Thanks Trikkur that will completely solve the problem as far as I'm concerned.
