I have a WordPress blog (linked on my profile page if that's helpful). It is set up to notify me when there are comments on postings. I've been getting spam comments and deleting them. They disappear from the post where they appeared. However, they DON'T disappear from the "recent comments" module on my homepage. This module contains a link to the spam URLs they are propagating. I know some SQL but almost no PHP. Is this a common problem? Any suggestions?
MT-Blacklist question. I find it to be an incredibly great tool. So far, I've only ever gotten MT spam from one source. The email address is always the same: "firstname.lastname@example.org," but because of MT-Blacklist's focus on using the linked-to content as the badge of spam, it only catches about half of these. Is there any way I can configure MT-Blacklist to refuse all comments submitted with this email address? It would seem simple enough... but I can't figure out how.
