  2. Go to Settings > Discussion
  3. Scroll down to the Comment Blocklist section.
  4. Enter any of the following into the box, one item per line:
    • Keywords or phrases
    • Domains or URLs
    • Names
    • Email addresses
    • IP addresses
  5. Scroll to the bottom of the page, and click Save Changes.
