The .info domain was created in late 2000. Since then it has been very popular with millions of registered sites. Most of those sites are used for “independent businesses” aka spam. It really should have been called .spam to make everyone’s lives a little easier.
Someone has recently realized how Akismet works and has been sending a huge amount of comment spam (one every three minutes) using .info domain names with only one or two keywords (changing the name and email used every time).
So it’s finally time for me to close the doors on .info. I can save a lot of hassle by automatically deleting any comments that contain .info or .biz
Dashboard >> settings >> Discussion.
Now scroll down to “Comment blacklist”
Insert, .info .Biz or any other Spam associated suffix and WordPress will automatically blacklist and block these spam comments. Saving you precious time.
Hope this helps.
