    Does anyone else get lots of "garbage" blogs created by user(s) from this domain

    And there are like 20 more like that, 2-3 made every day.

    I noticed the same kind of blogs on - how can we block these guys, its not coming from just 1 IP address...

    Yes, I had that before but I must have changed something so that they couldn't spam anymore...I still get it on my other blogger site but I don't use that site so...I don't mind..I think when I updated to the new version the spam stopped...but I could be wrong..

    I got the hindi spam and now it is numerous with any version of @yahoo email addresses.

    Any hope of a function to combat this?

    I would appreciate a function that allowed the admin to block certain domain names in the email signup box. For my purposes, allowing domains such as yahoo, hotmail, and any of the other numerous free email providers has no value. My users won't be using those services.

    I know you can limit it to one, but not block just a few.

    Any ideas as to how to accomplish this?

    Thank you.
