How to Blacklist the trolls?

Having read this entry, I decided I should put this up for those who might want help in doing the same.

Here is how.

1. Click on the Settings link (upper right corner of page, next to Users link)
2. Click on Discussion link at top of page

3. Scroll down to Comment Blacklist box, paste the IPs in it. You could also type in words (words in its content, name, URL, e-mail, or IP.Β  It will match inside words, so “press” will match “WordPress”.) you find offensive too

4. Don’t forget to hit button on the page. πŸ™‚

Let us all do away with trolls πŸ™‚


To add the image to your side bar:

5. Copy paste the following to

6. Click on the save changes button.

Writing -definitely an art!

A couple of days back, I had to fill in a few forms – sheets of paper using the good old pen. Guess what? I just could not go on. For someone who has grown up in the good old Indian system of studying which involved writing pages and pages…it was a chore to fill in those forms!!

This made me decide I should write a page of something (actually write – pen on paper types!) maybe even “Sriramajayam” (for the atheist that I am becoming πŸ˜‰ ) Hope I can keep up with this πŸ˜€
