    Can you make it so you need a password to leave comments? The person has to email you to as for the password. Its a pain, but spamers wont take the time to do that.

    Here's a perfect question for Chase's other forum.... :wink: I wouldn't have a clue how to stop this moron either, but surely someone from there can tell you exactly what steps to take.

    Poor girlie....I'd be livid, too.... :x

    Don't know about the compy stuff, but if you'd like, I'll give you a nice long backrub to ease the stress. ;-) :eyebrows:

    Or how about instead of a comments page, just leave your email and ask people to email you comments?

    Manda, are there urls in the comments? If so, you might be able to stop it if it is a bot. Not really sure how you can achieve that in MT though.

    you could wire the email with a subject tag and the rest and have your email prog dump the rest of the spammers. there are several ways to get around the email spam issue ;)
