Stopping Spam (Wordpress)
« on: Jun 17, 2016 @ 12:05 PM »
Hey everyone. I'm a Wordpress user and I recently started getting these random odd subscribers that have odd email addresses from domains that scream spam! So I started looking into how to stop them. I admit I love subscribers but goodness not those kind. While I was searching I saw a free plugin. I have no association with them. I just wanted to share what I found. The tutorial is here, as well as the link to the plug in.

ps. if I put this in the wrong forum I'm sorry.  :-[

Yeah, you were probably getting bot subscribers. Just junk.

Spam/bots become something you have to clean up. We have enough things to clean up so any help to minimize, prevent and simplify is greatly appreciated! Thanks 8)
