I have a spammer that is posting on my Blog page. First is there a way to permanently bloc email address from posting? Second can I set it up that I have to approve comments before they go up?

Thank you

    Hi Angie:

    There is currently not a way to do either of those things right now. The only real option in regards to spam control (beyond the built-in spam blocker) is to turn comments off completely. Otherwise you are left just hiding the unwanted comments as they are made.

    Unless you really want people to be able to make public comments, we generally recommend just disabling comments.

    Can you suggest they look into making moderating comments an option before they are published? Even my free web site had that.
