Spam bleg

March 18th, 2008

(First off, cialis canada diagnosis I find it odd that that headline is actually legitimate English.)  

I get a lot of comment spam (and not just from Capper. ;)) As much as I hate to do it, viagra sales prescription I think I need to implement some sort of CAPTCHA plugin for my comments.

Do you guys have any suggestions?

    I use Peter’s Custom Anti-Spam, and it works like a charm. It even includes a sound pop-up for those who can’t quite see the word.

    I’ve heard Akismet is good.

    Akismet works well for me.

    Thanks guys. I have Askimet turned on and it catches a bunch, but plenty still gets through. I tried Peter’s Custom Anti-Spam and stuff still got through. I know there’s no perfect solution, but I’m just sick of cleaning 5 plus spam comments out of my database every single day. I swear, I sometimes think we should be fighting a war on spam instead of a war on terrorism.

    I’m guessing your big problem is pingback spam, as is mine. There is an option in Peter’s Custom Anti-Spam to turn off pingbacks entirely (as opposed to either comments or trackbacks), one that I haven’t seen elsewhere. It’s much easier than hacking the xml-rpc.php file to kill the pingbacks.
