    Hello, I followed your instructions, however, it seems that adding in Filter Pattern text box is not working out 🙁 when I verify it, this comes out: “This filter would not have changed your data. Either the filter configuration is incorrect, or the set of sampled data is too small.”

    I think it is the filter configuration which is incorrect, since has been spamming my website this week. I am not that good at regex and IT, so I am not sure how I should formulate a text in Filter Pattern in order to block this spam.

    Thank you for your answer in advance
