    Help!!!
    I have just deleted 15 spam comments on my blog and its getting to the point where i have to do this every single day.
    Being that Ive been offline for a few, I had all these to get rid of.
    Does anyone know how to stop this other than manually banning their IPs?
    If I do that, I wipe out half a town in the process anyway.

    Its driving me mental, Id be mushc appreciative if someone could help.
    Also, Im no com wiz, so you'd have to explain it in laygirl's terms.

    I hate spammers. I just don't understand why people would want to do that. :|
