There are some users that I want to remove from using my site because they post a lot of spam comments. It will be great if Yola will make it available to block IPs

Hi roee,

It's a difficult situation i know and frustrating when spammers annoy you and your other visitors.

IP blocking really doesn't work because the majority (not all) of users have dynamic IP's that change every couple of days. So you block them today and they're back tomorrow.

I don't know of any add on strategy that would really overcome this. The best advice is to ignore them or remove comments as they appear and don't engage with them in conversation.

Agreed. Very frustrating but for the time being there is no obvious solution due to the reasons you mentioned.
