My bloggers have been complaining of an error on blog publish and when I took a look at the error the message read:
Message : The specified string is not in the form required for an e-mail address.
I took a look at the newsletter.xml file and found several hundred lines like this:
<email>payday loan firstname.lastname@example.org-|-http://adactivista.com/pg/profile/WardChung73-|-gt-|-ery nice article!-|-false-|-false-|-9b26a48c-0027-4a35-a8c2-b0a43fa85db1-|--|-</email>
I deleted the bad records then tested it and it worked.
Is there anyway to keep spammers from submitting comments in this Newsletter signup field?
