Unbelieveably, I am still getting comment spam through the various measures I have put in place.
Just this evening, I have re-named the wp-comments-post.php file – previously I had edited the contents of this file, changing comment variable names but this hasn’t deterred all the comment spammers!
Hopefully, renaming the file will further reduce the amount of comment spam this site is seeing.

It’s a tricky one, stopping spam posts while keeping regular ‘real’ posts easy to submit…
Comment spam is a fact of life if you have a blog, but using WordPress, you have not only some good built-in tools at your disposal, but also some excellent plugins and methods you can use which are constantly being developed.
Please do not think that you can ignore the issue of comment spam – you cannot.
