Comment Spam – Solution Wanted

in Spam

Who can solve the COMMENT SPAM on MT and without turning off the comments? Please share with me.

What I really think of these comment spammers is unprintable. There were two busy with my site this am. Just used Feedster to find the “lolita” cuplrit. (see below – my IP was up one number). Then I’ve had the “interesting” example and the “click the name at your own risk” warning. I’m sure I could find viagra if I looked. I could spend my whole day linking to others with comment spam. Feedster provided 823 items in seconds. I have no reason to doubt the facts below.

Reading & Writing: Comment Spamming

Comment Spamming
The last couple of days a robot named Lolita has been leaving the comment “Nice site!” on a number of my posts. Spam is bad & while I think pornography has been & will always be with us, comment spammers are the lowest of the low. Bottom feeders, the catfish of the internet, eaters of rotten feces . . .

Here is some information I found about the person who has been spamming my comments:

Amazing what you can find out in fifteen minutes on the internet. I began looking around after the second set of messages from Lolita showed up. I’m actually very easy-going about porn, but pretty hard-line about trespassing, which is what I consider spam. This is my space, …….

Update: Same guy now spamming as Preteen. Am not alone.

Jackass Spammers

I got hit again, this time by “Preteen,” as did others. Same first parts of the ip address as last night, just the last two digits varied. Is there anyway to ban that whole string?
