New Spam Catcher

Posted in General at 7:02 pm by Ian

I just added Bad Behavior to my blog to help stop spam. There shouldn’t be any change for normal users, so if you experience any bugs while trying to leave a comment, please email me.

    Given my past history with your spam filters I’ll be properly wary…

    Unless you’re using a known spambot to make HTTP requests, you should be in the clear.

    My favorite is still wp-hashcash (http://dev.wp-plugins.org/browser/wp-hashcash/trunk/) for fighting comment spam; simple but effective.

    Yeah, I use that too. But it doesn’t catch everything. Some of the spambots are implementing javascript now.

    Maybe you should post more often to see if the spam catcher really works 😉
