In the last few days I have been getting spam posts through my contact form - all of them begin with 84.110 - all ads for Viagra.

I keep adding them to my Block List, and I even tried just putting in 84.110 in the first two boxes of the Block area (hoping it could stop everything that begins with 84.110 but it doesn't.

If anyone has any tips, I would appreciate it. I thought about relocating the form on my site, but it would cause a lot of work and I think they'd just find the form again.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Darla

I'm still getting several every day. I wonder if it's worth spending time putting the IP numbers into the Block list, because it's a different ISP every time, or spammers spoofing different ISP numbers...again all still coming starting with 84.110

It would be helpful if the entry area for the ISPs was one text field, allowing me to cut and paste the ISP numbers in, instead of having to manually input them (but maybe it's that way to keep robots from inputting ISPs?!?)

We're currently working on an update with many upgrades to help combat this. This should be ready within a month or two.

Sincerely,

That's probably because it's not 'really' that ISP...they are probably spoofing someone else's ISP...they have gotten really good. I've given up on blocking them for now, it was taking too much time and didn't seem to be doing any good anyway...I'm looking forward to the updates.
