I hate Bob

I don't even know Bob but I hate bob. I have a feeling I am not alone in hating bob. I know at least one other blogger who hates bob as well. Bob is lucky I don't know him or I might make the papers for wacking him upside the head with a 2x4. In any case, I have deleted his posts, banned his ip addy etc etc, and he keeps coming back.

Short of hiring a hit man how can I can I make sure this guy never shows up on my blog again.

I know it has something to do with blacklist, but I don't want to go messing there, or people will be wanting to hit me upside the head with a 2x4.

Rachel: Try this link and this link for information on how to work blacklist

FYI: You can use the search thingy over in the sidebar to search across all the MuNu blogs for answers to questions such as these. Most of your answers will be under MuNuviana, but the blogs themselves will sometimes have good technical information.

Rachel Ann, if there's a determined human out to f*ck with you, there's almost nothing that automated technology can do to stop them, unfortunately.

Blacklist needs something that is completely consistent from one crap comment to the next, in order to function as either a pre-emptive blocker, or an after-the-fact removal tool. Also, that element common to all crap comments must be very unlikely to occur in a real comment, or real comments will get clobbered as well. (Things like names, or common phrases used are risky.)

If you can post or point us to examples of some of the crap, we be able to help find a way to protect you. In particular, depending on the content of the messages, ISP's can sometimes be involved to shut them down.

Let's at least take a shot at him.

Hi Madfish, and thank you. I've done the blacklist thing as far as I'm able. I didn't want to add urls and such to the list because I don't want to create a problem with blacklist.

Paul, this guy changes his ip frequently. I have him banned several times in my list. I then erase the comment. I can't get into my g-mail now, to give the last comment (I've spam banned him there too!) but when I can I'll post the comment and all other info later.

He generally goes into the old stuff, so I'm slowly closing comments on all posts older than a month. Is there a way to do this quickly? Helen, I know you mentioned something about it.

His spam goes from the just annoying to yuck; he usually doesn't make more than one or two comments a day but they add up and I'm tired of him.
