It's not even summer yet, but we've got repeats already...

Sigh. Someone has added both google.com and yahoo.com to the blacklist. I would delete them myself, but, unfortunately, my browser always locks up before even a thousand or so of the over 27k banned words, phrases and urls can load. Can anybody help? And can we maybe figure out who did it and give them some pointers?

I fixed them -- and it appears that somehow I put yahoo.com on, though I know not how or when.

Thanks! Sometimes you have to check that list of "found" URLs with a magnifying glass, the things they cram in there!

Its the spammers doing. Sometimes they insert embedded code with google.com or yahoo.com for 2 reasons: 1) to get their stuff past the spam filters and 2) to screw & get even with the bloggers. If you use the auto despam method then you won't pick it up until people complain.

I went to war with a spammer and he included my own site url and email so I was blocked from comment in all of munu for 2 days until Paul & Pixy stepped in. They kept coming back and inserting my url, so I got pissed and banned their IP addresses. Problem solved.
