  • [Blog] Blog spam despite no permissions

    I have been hit with blog spam twice in the last week. Same user (signed up with a similar name after ban). The problem is, they don't have access to write a blog. No one can post a blog until they've been a member for 45 days and has 500+ posts (or 60 days and 100 posts). This user isn't even confirmed (is in 'users awaiting email confirmation' group), but has still been able to post a blog. I created a test user, but wasn't able to post a blog. Any ideas?

    Are you sure he did not change his email address which would put him back uin the 'users awaiting' group?\

    Otherwise, assuming all your permissions are correct, the only way this would happen is from an add-on.
