Bad Behavior Behaving Badly

Yesterday some of you experienced a bit of a technical issue here at Blog about your Blog. If you tried to leave a comment you were denied. It was pretty easy to find that Bad Behavior was the culprite.

I haven’t yet attempted to fix it, but I don’t think it would be worth the trouble. Has anyone else had Behavior problems?

Sorry about the problem, don’t be shy now. You can comment again.

    I saw a few posts about it but I didnt have any issues with it. I did upgrade just in case though beacuse I don’t need anymore spammers than I get now manually.

    Ryan, that was the problem.

    Maybe I just need to upgrade it

    That is exactly what you need to do — upgrade it. It think the original got hacked and all ips were showing up as blacklisted.

    I had exactly the same problem a few days ago. It was terrible, as my IP was blacklisted too so I couldn’t log in to deactivate it. Had to remove it by deleting it from my server.

    I had an error with that one too. Basically it told me my IP was blacklisted and for two days wouldn’t let me log into my dashboard. At first I thought it was just a temporary problem, but then I gave up and logged into my cpanel and deleted a few of my security plugins. After I did that, I was allowed back into my site. Hmm. I guess I should start paying more attention!
