Up until a few days ago i had used the original WPBlacklist hack, but upgraded to the new 2.61 version after some rave reviews:
It has installed fine, with no errors at all, however it just doesn't work as it should. If i perform a search inside the config panel using the blacklist, the spam comments show up. But they are not blocked from appearing on the page, meaning i am essentially moderating everything...recieving 100's of spam comments per day. I've ticked all of the blacklist options except "Delete comments which are already held for moderation".
I can't figure it out! I've deleted the table, overwritten all the files, remove trailing whitespaces from all involved php files and reinstalled...but nothing works.
