Block Spammers And Intruders

I was reading Sonia Winland’s post the other day over at and she was sharing with us a plug-in she has been using for the past six months to ban spammers from her blog.

She put together a terrific video walking us through exactly how she’s got this set up and what to do.  The way this plug-in works, it actually blocks their IP addresses.

My comment to Sonia was that I don’t use a plug-in but I actually blacklist spammers from my blog through my dashboard.  Plus, those who are trying to hack into my blog, I ban those intruders IP’s through my hosting service.

She wasn’t aware of either of these methods and asked if I wouldn’t mind sharing how to implement both these techniques in a post.  So tada…

For your viewing pleasure!
