@sgunhouse Hi bud! I have also reported getting this email... It appears in my junk folder about twice a week, and occasionally in my inbox.
Unfortunately the usual methods of restricting this do not seem to work.
Sending an e-mail to "email@example.com" seems to be the most effective although I've never received an acknowledgement of the complaint. besides it takes too much time and effort.
With the advent of GDPR, if the site is in Europe a WhoIs is useless as almost all info is redacted.
Me too - I've followed @Gwen-Dragon 's helpful posting - really needs fixing for everyone - when you consider that the original posting was in 2019 - come on lads! - don't get me wrong Vivaldi is Great - have a good Christmas (if possible) and a successful and happy 2021
@gaelle Yeah, thank you. Incidentally I switched to this Setting last week after writing a new blog post. I didn't know about it initially and it turns out that many other users don't know this either. In the meantime I accumulated over 1000 spam comments in a very short time by the way.
The only thing I can say is it works – spammers don't have Vivaldi accounts. I also thought about setting the word blacklist, but didn't test this as the registration setting is enough.
And an additional comment about the automatic spam check: Turns out the check only works, if you enable it by having a paid Akismet account. Probably not worth it for a casual blog.
