Might explain a bit…

Okie dokie, since I had spamtacular yesterday, I had to install a plugin that has “common spam words” and then it says that you can’t post with that word.

I’m seeing all the posts come up in my notification emails but is anyone having troubles with this?

*NOTE: I just tested with the word “ass” and it went through on my email but I got some weird ass page that WASN’T my antispam warning page. I might be taking the antispam thing down for now, but it will be going right back up if the spambots come back.

Please let me know if you have any suggestions.

    I don’t understand how you’re getting spammed. Isn’t this service responsible for weeding that shite out? I’m not getting any on my blog (fingers crossed). I’m with blogger and it seems to be fine so far.

    I get spam constantly. It never makes it to the public’s eye, but I still have to delete the comments and the tons of email it generates. I just keep telling myself it’s because I’m popular… yeah that’s it! ;-)

    Here’s another option: If you have WP, you can turn off your comments for older posts. That will limit how many posts the spammer can spam, and it seems like, for me at least, they’re hitting the older posts. (By older I mean a couple days or more.)

    Have you tried MT-blacklist?
