Technical query

Does anyone know how to ban this cretin that is inundating the comment section with spam?

Easiest solution would be to ban anonymous comments, which would then allow you to easily filter any troublemakers.

I know it sucks to change provider, but wordpress.com is really powerful and you can import your blooger account:

Unfortunately, the "author" of the 60 spam comments in 3 mintues this morning had a Blogger-registered name (albeit no details)....and idea of how to ban him/her?

A few more episodes like this morning's and I might have to consider a change of scenery.

I enjoy your blog, Macroman -
Really only one choice. I also prefer the wordpress blog:

Go to your "settings"
Go to "comments"
Set "comment moderation" to "always"

Contact google/blogger and inform them of the violator. Internet harassment is a punishable crime and there is a digital trail of offenses.
