WordPress Comment Spam

A question from one of my clients regarding comment spam on her WordPress blog:

I have a quick question for you — been getting tons of crappy posts to my website. Is there a way to adjust some of the wording so it kicks out the pill and sexual content posts? Some of this are beyond nasty.

Thanks a million,

Before all your memories yellow and fade… Scrap-To-It!

My reply

When it comes to comment spam, there are a couple of settings in the WordPress control panel. You can turn off the comments all together or require approval from you before they get posted. I normally set mine to require approval, but it depends on how much comment spam you’re getting and how valuable it is for people to be able to post comments.
