Because WA provides spam protection at the server level I submitted a Site Support Ticket asking if we should add these IP addresses to our Disallowed Comment Keys Section in the Settings Discussion Section of our WordPress Sites.WA Site Support Response
Site Support said we could add them to each of our websites for protection.

- Go to Settings --> Discussion --> Disallowed Comment Keys.
- Enter the following IP Addresses in the Disallowed Comment Keys Box. One address per line.
- Save Your Changes
- That's it.
