Disabling WordPress Commenting still allows SPAMMERS to Comment

All of a sudden, we are facing lots of Spams in this blog; somehow SPAMMERS have found a way to bypass our CAPTCHA. I tried even upto extreme way of disabling ‘Comments’ option in this blog (I followed How to disable comments in WordPress), but still no luck,I am cleaning up Spams every day. I am not sure how SPAMMERS are able to comment even while ‘Comment’ option is totally blocked in this blog. 

What I did actually to disable WordPress Comments:

  • Disabled WordPress Comments by default

  • Disabled comments for all posts

  • Disabled XML-RPC in Remote Publishing found under Writing < Settings
